Boston University’s (BU) “Condom Fairy” just celebrated its ten-year anniversary. The Condom Fairy program delivers “free condoms (both internal and external), lube, dental dams, [and] information about sexual health and consent” to students on and off campus.

Each order includes a sticker depicting the program’s “tiny and sassy winged mascot.” In 2022, the Condom Fairy program updated its mascot to include a “trio of gender-, race-, and body-diverse fairies.”

The original slogan from the Condom Fairy’s 2013 launch read, “Now flying wherever flies come undone.”

The Condom Fairy program is run through Boston University’s Student Health Services (SHS), which also is home to an “emergency contraception vending machine.” The group “Students for Reproductive Freedom” sponsors the machine.
