He Said / She Said: Who Should Control Birth Control?


He Said/She Said is COED’s dating, sex, and relationship debate series designed to help dudes understand what chicks are thinking – we know, an impossible feat. Every week we’ll be throwing out a different topic for debate…you can read the guy’s side here and the girl’s side at CollegeCandy.com. This week’s topic: who should be responsible for birth control?

Ever since I was handed my first condom in the kitchen of a friend’s house after senior prom, I’ve been obsessed with condoms. Throughout college, I carried way way way too many condoms with me at all times. Even when I had a serious girlfriend who I’d known for years, I couldn’t bear the thought of not wearing a condom. When she finally convinced me to go without one because she said she was on birth contrl, I absolutely positively had to pull out. Call it a trust issue, but something about not being able to see the birth control at work throws me off.

The majority of men hate condoms. They say they can’t feel anything, it detracts from the experience, it makes them soft, they’re not big enough (shut up, Holmes). I’ve had multiple friends openly admit they don’t ever wear condoms. If the girl insists, he just passes. And these guys f*** like champions. How their d*cks are still intact is beyond me. How they’re not rivaling Antonio Cromartie for most illegitimate children is beyond me.

Don’t get me wrong, I’ve had 2-3 sexperiences when I was wearing a condom and I thought I’d be in the market for diapers and a crib. They’re not 100% foolproof. But to raw dog and cross your fingers? It can’t be worth those precious few minutes of passion.

From what I gather, men expect women to be on birth control. Just look at Knocked Up. Rogen’s trying to wrap his willy, Heigl’s barking instructions, he abandons the rubber and goes in for the kill thinking she’d be on birth control. Yes, I’m definitely surprised she wasn’t. And, I do assume (read: HOPE TO GOD) every girl is on birth control, but who knows who’s telling the truth or not. If it’s your girlfriend, you’re more likely to trust her, but even then she could just be out for your seed!

Even when the girl asks if a guy has one, I’d say more times than not the guy will say no and respond with, “You don’t have any?” Call me condom crazy, but EVERY PERSON who doesn’t want babies or STDs should carry condoms.

Here’s an interesting story. The company I used to work for hosted a party at a bar near a college campus. To promote our sponsor, we tried to hand out FREE condoms that were supposed to stimulate both guy and girl with a unique proprietary gel. It was ALARMING how many people turned them down and said, “I don’t use condoms.” Have fun at the doctor, kids!

I read somewhere that it costs something like $250k to raise a kid. You have that kinda cream laying around? If so, can a brother get $20? I need to go pick up another pack of condoms.
