SWANZEY, N.H. — Officials at a New Hampshire high school say they will no longer allow a group to distribute safe-sex kits to students because the contents include flavored lubricant and candy as well as condoms.
Bruce Barlow of the Monadnock (moh-NAD'-nahk) High School board in Swanzey says school officials had approved the distribution but didn't know the contents.
More than 70 students picked up the kits distributed last month by a group called AIDS Services as part of a World AIDS Day presentation. Some parents were upset.
Susan MacNeil of AIDS Services for the Monadnock Region tells WMUR-TV that it's unfortunate some people are upset. She says the lubricant was included because it reduces the chance of a condom breaking.
The group has been banned from the school district.
