How do you keep a French person from crashing your party?

Put a sign up that says "no nudity".

The French are famous for their art films filled with people in various stages of undress.

This has resulted in a reputation for sexual frankness and freedom.

Whether it’s true or not, there’s a serious side.

STIs On The Up

The rate of sexually transmitted diseases in France has increased by approximately 30% in 2020 and 2021, as reported by Reuters. According to Public Health France, this includes a 15% increase in new HIV cases. What to do?

Young women currently receive free birth control pills in France.

Macron: Condom Champion

French President Emmanuel Macron had originally announced that condoms would be available to anyone between the ages of 18 and 25. After being challenged on social media about condoms not being available to minors, he expanded the program to anyone up to the age of 25.

The newly introduced measures mean that free condoms will be available in pharmacies for people in this age category from January this year.

The Reason Why

Although there’s often push back against including teenagers in these programs, the fact of the matter is that kids are often sexually active. The most effective way to mitigate sexual health issues is to make contraception available to all.

“It’s a small revolution in preventative healthcare. It’s essential so that our young people protect themselves during sexual intercourse,” President Macron said.
