Bouncers let clubbers with rubbers jump the queue

RUBBER JOHNNY anyone? Liverpool are once again supporting a safer sex initiative called Got It Covered and are urging the city’s clubbers to play it safe with a condom queue jump promotion, in a bid to build on the campaign’s success last summer.

Throughout the first two weeks of March, Got It Covered will promote condom carrying around the city. “Activity” will take place across a range of locations from bars to beauty salons, encouraging young people to consider carrying condoms as a precaution during the key stages of nights out – from getting ready, during the night out itself, and returning home. Six of the city’s most popular clubs are allowing party goers to jump the queue if they show a condom at the door.

Liverpool was selected as a suitable test location for the pilot campaign last year because it is a major city with a large population of young adults. It also reflects national trends in terms of teenage pregnancies and rates of chlamydia screening. The clubs participating in the promotion include: • Reflex – 5th and 12th March • Bumper – 5th, 6th, 12th, 13th March • Cube Club – from 5th – 13th March (inclusive) • Mood – 5th, 6th, 12th, 13th March • Garlands – 6th and 13th March • Camel Club – 8th and 15th March.

In addition to the queue jump promotion, female clubbers carrying condoms on their nights out will also have the opportunity to ‘Go Glam’ with a special on-site hair refresh available at Medication at Nation provided by the Voodou hair salon on Wednesday 10th March.

Marc Jones, Director of Medication, one of the clubs participating in the promotion said: “It’s great that this campaign has come back to Liverpool, and we’re showing our support with a promotion for ‘clubbers with rubbers’. Simply showing up at Medication with a condom means people will get to enjoy the chance to ‘Go Glam’. Carrying a condom is the best way to be properly prepared and covered for every eventuality on a night out.” The queue jump promotion is one of a number of initiatives involving a coalition of more than 35 businesses across the city.

To increase the number of adults covered for every eventuality – and equip them with the means to say ‘no’ if they don’t want sex – NHS Liverpool Community Health, supported by young people’s sexual health charity Brook, has partnered with the coalition to promote ‘condom carrying’ as the norm.

Got It Covered was first piloted across Liverpool in August 2009 and as a result, the numbers of young people carrying condoms on nights out in the city increased by 55% . Findings suggest the number of Liverpudlians carrying condoms and protecting themselves against STIs was lifted to just over a quarter (28%). The seven clubs participating in the promotion expect thousands of party goers across the North West during the two weekends when the promotion is running.

Is it a good idea to have young women flashing condoms at the bouncers on The Cube? The bouncers were accused of allowing queue jumping for sexual favours before it closed were they not?

Great. Encourage queue-jumping as if there isn't already enough anti-social behaviour.
