Talking Points: should you be able to buy condoms at your school?

Talking Points: should you be able to buy condoms at your school?

Hate it when you can’t talk back? Well, you can with Young Post. Have your say and share with students around Hong Kong

Eunice Yung Po-yiu, 15, Fung Kai Liu Man Shek Tong Secondary School

Definitely no, because condoms are meant for adults, not for teenagers. School is not a place for sex, and if you bought condoms there, people would gossip about you.


Michael Kwok Pui-hin, 15, Law Ting Pong Secondary School

Being able to buy condoms at school is a good way to introduce safe sex. A school wouldn’t sell condoms without providing sex education to its students. This way, students would learn the proper way of using condoms.

Not all parents can give good advice about sex to their children. Students shouldn’t be having babies. If students have condoms, it can prevent teenage pregnancy, as well as sexually transmitted diseases.


Sex education in Hong Kong: the things you need to know but are too afraid to ask


Edward Wong Kwan-ho, 16, Law Ting Pong Secondary School

If we were able to buy condoms at school, it would mean that the school has basically said it’s OK for young adults to have sex. So I think students should not be able to buy condoms at school.


Charis Chan Chi-ching, 9, St Francis of Assisi’s English Primary School

No, we shouldn’t! Schools can provide information about condoms and where to get them, but they should not be distributed on campus. In many countries, the health department distributes condoms. If teachers provide condoms, they will be seen as promoting sexual activity.


Arthur Fan, 15, Kwok Tak Seng Catholic Secondary School

We should not be able to buy condoms at school. In a normal school, there should be no sexual activity. Everyone knows that school is not the place for sex, so it should not sell condoms. By selling condoms, schools would be encouraging sexual activity, so we should not be able to buy them at school.


Lily Cheng Tak-yan, 15, Law Ting Pong Secondary School

Students should not be able to buy condoms at school. Schools should sell some healthy snacks instead of things we won’t use there.


Talking Points: will the HK$3.5 billion Hong Kong Palace Museum be good for the city?


Jerry Chan, 14, Law Ting Pong Secondary School

I don’t think schools should sell condoms to students, because school is a place for learning. Condoms are for adult, and students should not be using them, they should by concentrating on their studies.


Steve Kong, 15, Law Ting Pong Secondary School.

We should be able to buy condoms at school, because teenagers during adolescence are curious about everything, and they might want to imitate adults by having a boy/girl friend. If they do not buy condoms in a convenience store, they might have unprotected sex, which could lead to pregnancy or diseases. If teenagers want to have sex, they should be able to buy condoms at school to prevent accidents.


Kelvin Chong Tsz-kin, 15, Law Ting Pong Secondary School

We should not able to buy condoms in our school, because the students are teenagers and if they know they can buy condoms they may try to have sex in school. Then when they grow up they might bring condoms to work, and have sex with colleagues, which would make society very strange.


Sandy Chung Cheuk-yung, 15, Law Ting Pong Secondary School

No, we shouldn’t be able to buy condoms at school, because this would only encourage students to have sex. The students’ curiosity could lead to serious consequences.

First of all I think that **** education is a vital aspect in our lives. After the **** revolution, **** is not a taboo anymore in many parts of the world, I think Hong Kong should follow the trend of the world, not staying the old conservative idea. School is also an essential part of all teenagers. We should teach our next generation a lesson which will affect lifetime happiness.

From my perspective , I think a condom is a good teaching material for students and it is also a high time to let the students have **** education.So, I agree let student buy the condom at school.
