Club Gun: free condoms at gay venues

Club Gun: free condoms at gay venues


A condom is the best method to prevent HIV, but one-third of gay men do not always use a condom. Condoms are not always at hand in certain situations, such as forgetting to carry a condom when you’re out and about or getting lucky at the pub. In such situations, a free condom provides a safety net. This is why this project aims to distribute free condoms at venues where men who have sex with men meet.

The clubs offer condoms and sachets of lubricant. Without lubricant the chance of the condom tearing during anal sex is greater. Most condoms already have a bit of lubricant, but that's rarely enough for anal sex. Hence, it is important to provide lubricant as well.

CLub Gun locations not only provide free Condoms and Lube; they offer information regarding correct condom use, STI and HIV prevention as well. If the opportunity to have sex is offered, these spaces are adequately illuminated and cleaned according to hygiene guidelines. There is also an opportunity to wash your hands before and after sex. The location owner encourages his guests to have safer sex. In this way he helps reduce the risk of transmission of HIV and other STD. uses cookies to offer the best website experience possible and to anonymously analyze website behaviour. More information.
