The BEST Condom Brands According To College Students

Love them or hate them, you have to admit condoms are the most affordable and easily assessable forms of birth control, especially among college students.

You are always just one drug store trip and five dollars away from safe sex, and with condoms being one of the only forms to protect you from sexually transmitted diseases, there is a case to say they are the way to go.

Just like everything in 2018, everyone has opinions on everything so I asked college students about their preferences on condom brands and this is what they said.

Trojan

"Trojan, I love the different options they offer!" - Female, 22

"Trojan bare skin, trust me." - Male, 19

"None, but when my fiance and I did use them we used trojan, we tried other brands and they would always break! But the trojan ones would stay put!" - Female, 20

"I SWEAR by Trojan bare skin. I've tried ONE, other Trojan styles, a whole bunch. Trojan bare skin is the only one that's felt the best for myself and the guy. They're lubricated super nicely (obviously as every condom, if it's going for some time and what not, it dries out, so you get another one or use a lubricant." - Female, 22

Lifestyles

"Lifestyles are my go to because they're usually cheaper than Trojans and I have never had an 'uh oh'" - Female, 18

"When I use condoms, I use Lifestyles in the THYN type since it feels the closest." - Male, 22

'Lifestyles, you can get a pack for 30 at Walmart for 8 bucks!" Male, 20

"Not a fan of them (I have an implant for birth control) but when I do I like Lifestyles I have no idea why haha I think they feel smoother I guess" -Female, 20

SKYN

"Skyn is part of lifestyle right? I like those, mostly because of the packaging." - Male, 19

"My Fiancé and I use Skyn as I have a latex allergy. So far the are the closest thing to not wearing a condom" - Female, 19

"SKYN. Why? Because I already have 2 tiny humans. Jk. They feel the best. " Female, 23

"I like the Skyn brand that's non latex because of my latex allergy. The Trojan non latex ripped a lot last time." - Female, 22

"My favorite is the skyn brand. They're not latex, they feel the most natural (to me at least), and I've never had an issue with them tearing or anything else" - Female, 24


ONE

"ONE! We used to use Trojan but they broke all the time and my school gives out ONE for free so I grabbed a few and we haven't looked back! They're very comfortable, have never broken, and have a lot of fun styles. We really enjoyed the glow in the dark ones" - Male, 20

" I like "ONE" they have a lot of variety's and never had them tear." - Female, 18

"One because they're funny and have unique textured ones, and they're cheaper" - Male, 18

"ONE because I love the designs and they're so easy to hide in my purse or card holder. I would have never picked them up though if my RA didn't hand them out though." - Female, 20


Anything Vegan

"The chemicals in every brand I've tried have ruined me, there are "vegan" condoms that don't have chemicals tho" -Female, 19

"Sustain Condoms. They are vegan, all natural, fair trade, cruelty free, and you can buy online. Lol they also have a subscription that you can take part in!" - Female, 20

But what sums it up best

"Each vagina is different so you may have to test a few!" -Female, 23

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.

Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
