Condom amulets

A Little Red Hen is an interesting elder blog about a variety of issues, especially peace, politics, yarnlife after 60. A special topic is AIDS awareness among older people. This is also a topic of HelpAge International (see sidebar).

The condom amulets are a useful idea. I’m sure folks out here could add their designs based on traditional basketweaving and the crocheted recycled shopping bags techniques.

Despite stereotypes, many older women [and men] are sexually active. If you talked to your recently divorced friend about these amulets, could a casual conversation lead to sex education? It’s worth a try….

CONDOM AMULETS in techniques other than knitting. Left to right, copper wirecloth (similar to kitchen scrubbing pads), recycled fine brass metal container for chocolates strung on colored telephone wire, and black wirecloth (as for window screens).

WORLD AIDS DAY is DECEMBER 1…Would you wear one as a neckpiece to alert friends and neighbors that HIV in women over 50 is on the rise?
