According to our survey of over 2,000 people, only 35% of women said they always bring contraception to a festival.
If you find that you’re not completely festival-ready or your regular contraception lets you down in the heat of the moment, know your morning after festival options.
And remember, you’re not alone. It happens…as Rosie, a writer and occasional comedian, reveals in our first #MyMorningAfter confession…
Last year, I took the morning-after pill at a festival.
Long story short: three days of sweat, a diet of cider and chips, and a fair amount of glitter landed me in a tent with the guy of my dreams. Unfortunately the only thing missing was a condom.
There was a huge group of us going: my girls, some of their boyfriends, their boys, and…him.
He was a friend of a friend. Wicked sense of humour, dark eyes and a beard…obviously. A few weeks previously, I thought he was going to kiss me at our mate’s ‘Seaside’ party, but turned out he was leaning in to re-adjust my ‘tache (no, not my real one…I was dressed up as a pirate…looking back, I can see why I didn’t pull).
You know it’s real when at a festival with tens of thousands of people, there is only one you can’t take your eyes off. This was not just any vibe.
