Boston Public Schools Pulls Condoms With Sassy Wrappers

1 minute read

The Boston public school system is going to stop distributing condoms in wrappers that say “hump one” and “tasty one,” among other messages that parents complained are inappropriate for teenagers, The Boston Globe and WBZ NewsRadio report.

Based on an image tweeted by a mother named Stephanie Bode Ward, the controversial condoms also say “One Lucky Lady”, “Enjoy One”, and “Busy One.”

The Boston public school system was distributing them as part of a pledge to make them available to high schoolers who receive safe sex counseling. And Ward completely approves of that policy, she told The Boston Globe in an interview: “Right idea, wrong execution. I so fully support condoms in the schools, and it was incredibly courageous for BPS to adopt the policy.”

Boston Public Schools spokesperson Brian Ballou told WBZ NewsRadio, “We made the decision to take all of those condoms out of school circulation and to go with some that had different, generic wrappers. We received a new distribution of 20,000 that will go to schools immediately.”
