Abstract/ Summary

This week is National Condom Week, so I'd like to focus today's column on condoms, to get you thinking about the issue. Let me start off by saying: Vows of abstinence break far more often than condoms do. Having said that, I would like to point out that the simple truth is that, for sexually active couples, condoms are the best means we have of preventing HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).
