Perceptions of contraception

“But as a female, when you’re in the heat of the moment, that’s how they get you. You go, fine f*ck it just put it in, you’re hot and ready,……. because as a man, its like a mindgame, they get you, …….. you aint thinking at this point, … That’s how you end up having sex without a condom”

“And as females, and I even hate to say this, our judgement is very blurred at that moment, because we’re in heat, and we’re ready to go, we’re not thinking.”

“Cause we both agreed that it was kind of important that that issue doesn’t come up.”

“Now, depending on the type of guy, he’ll stop, grab one from his pocket and grab one from his wallet or wherever its at and it’ll…that’s how you know he’s on his stuff, like ok, he uses safe sex.”

“like specially for women, you bear most of the risk. That’s just true across the board. And should pregnancy come from it, society says you’re most responsible for it. They’re not. So guys can walk away you can’t.”

“We could be 6–8 months in and we happen to switch it and not use one, I don’t have a problem with that. Now if I’ve only known you for a month and some change and you wanna raw dog it we got a problem.”

“So I fought with my mom and got on birth control when I was 16 and I still use condoms as an extra precaution because I was so terrified of becoming pregnant at a young age. We were taught that it’s the worst thing that can happen to you in school, I think it’s why I still don’t think I will ever want children.”

“In the process of stopping him going down my pants, I got out of bed and grabbed one. I didn’t even give him the chance to think about whether he had one or not, just because I don’t know you like that, I’ve only been talking to you for maybe 3 weeks and this just decided to happen. So it all depends, for me, it depends on my relationship with you.”

“..for me personally I think it’s important because of certain life goals like especially for women, you bear most of the risk.”

“To get an IUD implemented, it’s about a $1000 but it lasts for 5 years. Which I can tell you is cheaper than my Nuva Ring. Long-term and short-term. That was about $100/month.”
