The Condom Fairy is a free program that sends safer sex supplies and health information right to BU students’ mailboxes.

About the Condom Fairy

At BU, safer sex has a tiny winged ambassador, The Condom Fairy. The Condom Fairy delivers on- and off-campus to make it easier for BU students to access condoms and other safer sex supplies by removing cost, privacy, and embarrassment barriers. The Condom Fairy also provides important information about consent and sexually transmitted infection (STI) testing resources. 

Available Supplies and How to Use Them

Safer sex supplies aren’t “one size fits all.” Supplies can come in a variety of sizes, materials, flavors, colors, and more. The Condom Fairy offers a selection of supplies to meet BU students’ wants and needs. You’ll also find instructions on how to use these supplies.

Emergency contraception options

Emergency contraception (the morning after pill) can be taken to prevent pregnancy after unprotected sex. It is most effective when taken within 72 hours of unprotected sex, but you can take it up to five days after – the sooner the better. Learn more about how emergency contraception works.



Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI) Testing

If you’re sexually active, getting tested regularly for STIs is an important part of taking care of your sexual health. SHS offers convenient STI testing on campus. Learn more about when and how to get tested, what to expect, how to talk with sexual partners about testing, and more in this Q&A with a nurse.
