Condom vending machines and society issues.!!! June 18, 2008

CONDOM VENDING MACHINES are the hottest topic doing the rounds in the country especially among youngsters. The changing trends and the attitude to ape the western world have hyped sexual activity. India has more than five million HIV/AIDS sufferers second only to South Africa but efforts to control the disease stand against the extremely conservative traditions deep rooted in our culture.

Today, lot many youngsters indulge in sex and often led their way to unsafe sex just because, they are shy to ask for condoms from the third person or either the medical shops are way a little far from them. One, has to understand that, if a person mind is made up, he will have sex anyways, only thing we can do is to encourage “safe sex”.! The recent increase in the number of extramarital affairs and having sex with multiple partners has let to the increase in the HIV/AIDS cases only.! How can one afford to take a risk in the heat of the moment and regret it for the rest of his or her life.? It is wiser to use protection than to play the game unarmed.

The concept of condom vending machines is fairly new to India but most of the people are unaware about the machines that are also known as condom ATMs. In Chennai and Hyderabad, condom vending machines have been installed in “public toilets” and a lot of people are happy with them. Its a great idea to help people protect themselves from the HIV pandemic and unwanted pregnancies. Lot of people are taking a step to experience the sex when they r young n stepping into the the era where they r not restricted to old myths and concepts realting to sex. Tough still lot of guys feel shy to go to a medical shop n ask for a condom just because there might be some lady or women, standing on the shop or they r just simply shy and hence lands up in truly unprotected sex leding tthem to many miseries n might be some diseases. This condom vending machine save us the thread of walking up and asking for a condom and help enjoy safe sex.

The controversy swirling around condom vending machines is that their installation is likely to corrupt the youth and damage the ideals of our country. What ideals are being talked about is the question. If one were to have sex with a stranger, would it be wise to use a condom or simply go in for unprotected sex? Can our cherished ideals control thousands of individuals plunging in the act or would condom vending machines help control the HIV/AIDS crisis to an extent?

Some people think that condom vending machines will corrupt the youth and encourage them to experiment with sex on a wider scale. But in our country, everybody is doing it and nobody wants to talk about it. How sane is this attitude? Can we stop people from indulging in the act itself by promoting AIDS awareness among the masses?

“Condom vending machines should be installed in Pubs and nightclubs where a lot of youngsters end up having one-night stands. Many of  today’s generation ended up indulging in unsafe sex because the chemist stores were either shut down or were out of their way. These machines would definitely help people in a big way.”

Condom vending machines are an effort to raise HIV/AIDS awareness. They certainly do not collide with the values of our country. For those who are against the concept, think about the number of lives that might be saved with the effort.
I m truly in support for such an effective measure which can help our nation to overcome or safeguard our forth coming generation from some heavy epidimics like HIV/AIDS. And i feel one must participate too in raising the voice against the political contraversies over this issue, and the moral values for the sake of the coming generation. As we all know the time is changing and one has to change the way  to think n measure on such an important prospective. Its we who can take our nation somewhere we r the one who are called n well known as the “YOUTH” of nation.! if we will lag behind them who wil come forward an talk about this issue.!!!
