This paper discusses how objections have been raised to Camden County College's decision to install condom dispensers in all of the university's restrooms and how opponents argue that this sends a bad message to the student body, regarding sexual practices. The paper looks at some of the counter arguments such as far from sending the wrong message to students, installing these dispensers sends the right message--that the administration expects students to behave like adults, and that it promotes safe sex.
From the Paper:"However, it could be argued in response that far from sending the wrong message to students, installing these dispensers sends the right message--that the administration expects students to behave like adults, and that it promotes safe sex. Additionally, some students may feel embarrassment about purchasing condoms in drugstores. While it could be argued that this is a juvenile sensation, surely it is better to install the dispensers where condoms can be purchased in private, than it is for students to engage in unsafe sex. "Dispensers would also allow students to obtain condoms anonymously, therefore eliminating the embarrassment of asking another person" (Cooper 2006, p.2). Regarding parent disapproval--surely the health of the students should come before any desire to craft a particular 'image' for visitors. "
