  60. 60. Interviews
  61. 61. Interview #1! • Personality traits: blunt, outgoing, fun, confident ! • “I usually feel neutral, kinda proud that I'm a responsible adult and taking contraception into my own hands so I don't end up on "Teen Mom 3.” ! • “In a monogamous relationship, I feel like it's both party's responsibility to make sure that you guys are taken care of. I don't feel like it's solely his responsibility. No way. It's my body, and since I'd end up getting preggers, I like to protect myself and ensure my own sexual safety.” ! !
  62. 62. Interview #2! • Personality traits: reserved, self-conscious, traditional in beliefs ! • “Yes I do think it's the man’s job [to buy condoms.] I think it's easier and society is more forgiving when a male purchases condoms over a female. Although I realize I should buy condoms because it's MY body, I do think men should because it's their responsibility to take care of the female if that makes sense?” ! • “It does give the brand a little more credibility when branded that way so I would buy them because they seem more high class.” ! !
  63. 63. Interview #3! • Personality traits: kind, calm, laid-back ! • “If I was going to buy condoms, I would consider the SKYN brand because they are making an effort to position themselves as [the right] choice for women, and that makes me feel like they understand women too.” ! • “I feel like generally I would trust latex over non-latex, but that is just because I know that most condoms are made of latex and I'm not sure what the other materials would be.” ! ! ! !
