Condoms & Lube

Phoenix Center Logo - Central Illinois LGBT Center

We distribute FREE condoms and lube.

Why is this important…? Many people associate condoms with pregnancy prevention when in fact they can be life saving. They help prevent the transmission of HIV, gonorrhea and chlamydia, and condom use is also associated with a lower rate of cervical cancer, an HPV-associated disease.

Are condoms all the same? No, there are different sizes, textures, colors and brands. There are flavored, ones with extra lube, ones that glow in the dark. Typically they are made of latex but non-latex are available for those who have allergies.

Why lube? There are lots of reasons to use lube. It can increase pleasure and enhance pleasure but most importantly from a prevention perspective, it will reduce friction which in turns reduces the risk for creating a tear which can serve as a portal of entry for HIV and other STDs.
