If you’re sexually active, if you’re a condom user, or if you’re just interested, the MoJo Wire has come up with this handy method of putting the Avanti story into a personal perspective. Don’t worry, our site doesn’t give out cookies, and we’re not keeping a record of who you are or what you reveal.

2. When I have sex, I use condoms about:

0% of the time
25% of the time
50% of the time
75% of the time
100% of the time

3. When I use condoms, I personally buy them about:

0% of the time
25% of the time
50% of the time

4. Have you ever had a condom break on you?

No
Yes

5. Have you ever used Avanti* “plastic” condoms?

I don’t know…it was dark


*Disclaimer: The original, too-thin Avanti condom was sold in 13 Western states and by some national chains from December 1994 to May 1996. The FDA has never issued a recall. Not all Avanti condoms are thin and easily breakable.

REAL QUICK, REAL URGENT

Minority rule, corruption, disinformation, attacks on those who dare tell the truth: There is a direct line from what's happening in Russia and Ukraine to what's happening here at home. And that's what MoJo's Monika Bauerlein writes about in "Their Fight Is Our Fight" to unpack the information war we find ourselves in and share a few examples to show why the power of independent, reader-supported journalism is such a threat to authoritarians.

Corrupt leaders the world over can (and will) try to shut down the truth, but when the truth has millions of people on its side, you can't keep it down for good. And there's no more powerful or urgent argument for your support of Mother Jones' journalism right now than that. We need to raise about $450,000 to hit our online fundraising budget in these next few months, so please read more from Monika and pitch in if you can.
