Listen in on my open conversation with Bec Park, the Co-founder of the female-owned condom brand, Jonny. Jonny is a vegan-friendly condom that comes with a 100% biodegradable, disposable bag to make practising safe sex fun, easy and good for the environment. Bec and I discuss why there is still so much stigma around discussing safe sex openly and why too many women fear rejection when asking for a condom from their sexual partners.
- Jonny was founded by three friends, Bec Park, Bec Villanti and Samantha Eades after discussing the stigma around sex and the rise in STIs.
- 60% of women prefer to go to the doctor and undergo an STI test rather asking for a condom during sex out of fear of rejection. Because of this, Jonny is on a mission to promote the importance of safe, consensual and respectful sex to help minimise STIs.
- Did you know that traditional condoms often have milk derivative "casing" that is used to lubricate the condom? Jonny uses a silicone oil, making it 100% vegan - better for the planet and our body!
- Don't throw condoms down the toilet! Too often, condoms end up in our waterways rather than being disposed of safely. Jonny has developed a disposable, biodegradable bag that you can place your used condom in before throwing it in the bin.
