Only with a condom – This cartoon strip describes the problem of not using a condom, especially among young people. After walking around the city, André meets Kito’s girlfriend, who tells him she urgently needs to speak to him. The same evening, Kito discovers that his girlfriend is pregnant, while André has an intimate date with Julia. She demands to not have to use a condom, as a proof of love, and André finally agrees. The story goes on to describe the consequences of the two couples’ choices. Kito’s girlfriend, only fifteen, considers abortion, while André finds himself in hospital after having contracted venereal disease.
