Video description: This public service announcement was produced entirely by teens for teens by Community Healthcare Network’s Teens P.A.C.T. program in New York City. It is just one in a series of public service announcements collectively titled, MORE THAN JUST SEX! MORE THAN JUST SEX aims to empower young people to make positive decisions, create social change, and reduce the rates of teen pregnancy, STD’s, and HIV in New York City and beyond.
A hilarious parody of drug commercials, “The Importance of Condoms” brilliantly describes the possible consequences of having unprotected sex and addresses common reasons that some people do not want to use condoms.
Condoms are 98% effective when used correctly. They provide protection against pregnancy and are the ONLY type of birth control that protect against STDs and HIV. Despite these incredible virtues, some teens still choose not to use condoms. The creators of “The Importance of Condoms” want you to know… CONDOMS ARE IMPORTANT!
