While my card-making station was surrounded by teenagers pasting paper hearts and writing messages for their valentines, facilitating the safe sex station was quite a challenge, since many students giggled and ran away from the sight of condoms and cucumbers for the fair's first half-hour. However, with the help of our candy-crafty friends at NECCO, Sweethearts and heart-shaped lollipops proved to be an effective incentive. By the end of the afternoon, over 100 matayom students left with handmade Valentine's Day cards and a better understanding of safe sex practices.
