The fact that this needs to be said again is kind of mind blowing: Stop shaming women for carrying condoms. How are we still even talking about this?
Can’t we all collectively agree that we have this completely backwards? Carrying a condom doesn’t make you easy, slutty, gross, or disease ridden. It makes you responsible. If you happen to be slutty and carry condoms? That’s your own damn business.
68% of teen girls used a condom the first time they had sex. Of course, we pretend that no teens are having sex and that telling them sex is “bad” will magically stop them from doing it. In case you missed it: Nope.
We need to stop putting our health in the hands of teen boys (and grown men) who don’t know what they’re doing. According to a study of over 800 women, nearly half reported feeling unhappy with or pressured into sex. Half. And we’re worried about a woman who actually carries condoms and takes control of her own body, health, and sexual destiny?
Is this a joke? It sure feels that way. Listen, it’s time to stop shaming a woman who is carrying a condom. Ladies, if you pull a condom out and the person you’re going to have sex with dares shame you: Do not have sex with that person It’s not worth your time.
Carry your condoms and where them like a badge of honor.
Moments Condoms have found a match and its healthy, safe and very interesting!
We have partnered with the talented Andi Lew for her book #Instalovers that talks about digital dating netiquette, Direct Message disasters and the numerous infotaining instances that happen in the time of love-on-internet. The hilarious, informative, witty and courageous book on modern tech dating is scheduled for a media launch in December before hitting the bookstores across Australia in January next year.
Andi organically approached Moments Condoms after feeling inspired by the vegan certified condoms which come with affirmations to help you feel empowered and prepared, packaged in a little box of three!
Men and women are increasingly resorting to online dating applications to find love and companionship instead of going with conventional dating ways. Moments Condom believes that sex should be liberating, empowering, fun and most importantly safe! We feel women today must realise and be sensitive to their sexual health and take confident decisions in favour of it.

In a world that constantly tries to undermine our decision-making capacities, contemplating a tryst with potential lovers can be a tough one to beat. We do believe in the majestic power of scintillating feelings and stirred up endorphins, but Moments will be there to put your needs and safety above a fleeting romance or a lasting affair. If we don’t look out for each other, ladies, who will?
It would be a lie of crazy proportions if we said first dates are supposed to be a breeze. Every individual has the nerves that keep one up at night wondering who is going to make the first move. We propose you help us create a world where we, as women, put our needs first.
Butterflies aside, there is something that has tainted generations of women throughout their existence. Yep, you guessed that right – our sexuality and wellbeing. And perhaps, it is time we break those barriers.
Fear is so yesterday when you consider all the powerful women around us winning the day despite the odds heavily stacked against them.

They not only nail every task ever assigned but manage to set an example so good that novices around them beam with courage – all the while crushing every damn thorn in their corner.
But when you are swamped with board meetings and picking the best suit out, it is important to also protect yourself against vicious infections and uncomfortable encounters. We at Moments understand the fight you bring to claim your space in the industry. After all, if we’re going to war, we might as well have some fun.

My thoughts while online dating: “Oh my God, I’m going to be single my entire life.” Anon. This one is to cherish all those who still wish to acquaint themselves to other beings and long for a connection. To the brave women who date in the age of hookups, raise your glass!
The alluring and peculiar world of dating recently experienced a huge shift as its millennial inhabitants decided to stir up old dynamics. In this newfound realm, a few odd ones are stuck in a loop where pretty much everyone else wants to pick something casual as they wait for ‘the one.’
With the sorcery that capitalism is, it doesn’t come as a surprise that it is grabbing individuals one by one with its charm. Casual sex seems like a reasonable option given the crazy, tiresome schedules that people work. Some people find it convenient to make up and break up over their phone screens – without even a face to face conversation.
We kid you not, finding the courage to date in this era can be a bittersweet experience, to say the least.
And since we at Moments are dedicated to the women who are exceptional at juggling things – sexual health and relationships make up a huge part of the deal. Ladies, it is time to take the baton into your hands and make a run for the win. Our condoms are specially designed for those very dates, to ensure your safety against vicious infections and unbearable stress.
There has been a turn of chapters ever since receptivity to sexuality found willing arms. Needless to say, it comes with immense hope for women to experiment, play around, and take matters into their own hands.

Here at Moments, we think it’s better to talk candidly about sex and partners and protection. We believe it’s better to get these things out in the open and have a frank chat about the issues facing Australian women – such as our sexual health.
Because when it comes to sexual health, women in Australia are still uncomfortable talking about it or taking proper care of themselves.
