Family Planning and Sexually Transmitted Infections Testing

Check out the very funny and entertaining "Guy's Guide" videos located in the "features" section that teach the men in your life all about every aspect of birth control. There is a "Frisky Friday" section and even interesting videos in which people share their very personal reasons why they chose their method of family planning or birth control.
