Pharmac funding flavoured condoms

Pharmac is now funding flavoured condoms (among many other novel varieties), to help “promote better sexual health practices”.

I understand the reasoning behind Pharmac funding contraception, even though I have some issues with it of course. But the whole point of flavoured condoms is that they are not being used for contraception, when you think about it…

This particular example is government subsidised “entertainment”, with absolutely no health benefit whatever way you look at it, and is taking money away from providing real health services.
