The Dime Store
Welcome, Sexy Bardians!

The Dime Store is a student-run service charter club that provides free (that's right, FREE!) prophylactics to the Bard College community. We are a small group of dedicated volunteers who work hard to promote safer sex on campus and provide a fun, varied, and inclusive array of products for you to try. To find out how to place an order with us, or if you have any additional questions, please refer to our FAQs below.

Have fun, play safe!

FAQs
Feel free to scroll past these if you already know how to order!

Q: Who can place an order from the Dime Store?
A: Anyone with a campus mailbox in the Bertelsmann Campus Center post office.

Q: How do I place an order?
A: You've come to the right place! Scroll through our order form and decide which products you would like. In the spaces underneath each picture, indicate how many of that item you want. Leave spaces blank for items you don't want. For items with different colors or flavors, check the appropriate boxes and indicate how many of each item you would like in the "other" section. Please remember that we have a limit of 20 items per order: 10 barriers (condoms/ dental dams) and 10 lubricants or other items. In the future, you can find this order form by bookmarking this link, visiting tinyurl.com/bardcollegedimestore, or visiting us on Facebook and clicking "Shop Now."

Q: Is there an order limit?
A: Yes. Please note that the limit is 20 items per order: 10 barriers (condoms/dental dams) and 10 lubricants or other items. Unfortunately we are not able to accommodate orders larger than this, but you can re-order from us at any time :)

Q: I've placed an order. When will my order be filled?
A: Our staff fills orders on Mondays at 5pm, Wednesdays at 1:30pm, and Fridays at 5pm. Orders filled on Mondays or Fridays will be in campus mailboxes the following morning. Orders filled on Wednesdays will be in campus mailboxes by approximately 3:00pm that day.

Q: How do I pick up my Dime Store order?
A: Your order will be waiting for you in your campus mailbox in the campus center post office.

Q: I'm embarrassed to pick up an order with sexy items inside. Will anyone know?
A: The Dime Store puts your order in a discrete brown paper bag. The only marking on the bag is your mailbox number, and the bag will be stapled closed. No one will know what's inside ;-)

Q: Is my order anonymous and confidential?
A: Yes and yes. Out of respect for your privacy and discretion, we do not ask for any identifying information when you place an order (unless you are a PC).

Q: I'm a PC trying to order supplies for my dormitory. How should I go about doing this?
A: Hey PC! Thanks for helping to keep your residents safe. To order for your dorm, please leave us a note at the end of your order noting your PC status and WHAT DORM you are serving. PCs can order as many items as they want at a time (within reason--we don't have an unlimited supply). If you're not sure what to order, just leave us a note saying so and we'll give you a fun, inclusive variety of items for your residents. Don't forget to keep an eye on your supply and re-order when it gets low! And remember that your items will be delivered to your campys mailbox a few days after you place the order. The Dime Store <3s PCs :)

Q: I'm not quite sure how to use a condom.
A: No worries! You can find all the basics here: http://teenhealthsource.com/sex/how-to-external-condom/. Even if you're sure you've got your condom use down to a safe science, a refresher never hurts, so check out that link to make sure you're remembering all the important steps!

Q: I'm not sure what condom size I and/or my partner(s) should use.
A: The Dime Store currently offers a variety of condoms in the standard size, and one brand of condoms sized a little larger (Trojan Magnums). Wearing the right size condom will make sex safer. Most people do not need to use Magnums, but if you're unsure about whether you should be using them, check out this helpful link for information about condom sizing: https://www.condom-sizes.org/condom-brands/trojan-magnum-condoms.

Q: Wat the hek is an internal condom?
A: You'll find answers here: http://teenhealthsource.com/birthcontrol/how-to-use-an-internal-condom/.

Q: Are your latex-free condoms made from lambskin?
A: Nope! Lifestyles non-latex condoms are made from polyisoprene, a non-animal material.

Q: I forget, which condoms/ dental dams are safe to use with which lube?
A: Worry not--ALL lubricants offered by the Dime Store are safe to use with latex and non-latex condoms and dental dams. Any precautions you should take with an item are clearly marked in the title and description. Here's what's important to know: unlike all the other lubes we offer, our silicone lubricant CANNOT be used with silicone sex toys; anal lubricant is NOT for vaginal use; oil-based lubricant is NOT safe to use with condoms (for this reason, we don't offer any oil-based lubes). When in doubt, stick with water-based lube!

Q: I've never used lube before. Do I need it?
A: We think everyone could benefit from having a little more lube in their lives. Our motto is, the wetter the better! The Dime Store offers a wide range of fun flavors and textures of lubricant to fit your needs and preferences. But using lube isn't just fun--it actually makes sex safer. Lubrication can help prevent irritation and tears that leave you more vulnerable to discomfort, injury, STIs, and other infections. Using lubricant does not mean there's anything 'wrong' with your body--it's perfectly normal! If you're new to lube, you might want to try starting with hypoallergenic water-based lube.

Q: What is a dental dam, and how do I use it?
A: A dental dam is a rectangle of latex used to make oral sex safer. Although you can't get pregnant from these acts, you CAN contract STIs--so if you don't know your partner's STI status, it's a good idea to use a dental dam. Simply hold the dam firmly in place with both hands during oral sex or anus-to-mouth contact. There should be no flipping of sides once you begin. You can find a fun (and gender-neutral) introduction to dental dams here: https://www.buzzfeed.com/skarlan/what-the-fck-is-up-with-dental-dams?utm_term=.gqV38kA1w#.qgB95B1d2.

Q: The Dime Store is out of dental dams. What do I do?
A: You can make your own dental dams using condoms: unroll the condom, cut off the tip, cut off the rim at the base, and then make an incision up one side of it--this will form a rectangle of latex. You can also do this process using a latex glove. Thirdly, you can make a dental dam out of plastic wrap, but make sure the wrap you use is NOT microwaveable--microwaveable wraps are usually porous, and won't protect you.

Q: Can I follow the Dime Store on social media?
A: Yes! You can like and/or follow our Facebook page ("The Bard College Dime Store") for updates on orders, events, and sexual health information. We love getting new followers!

Q: Are y'all responsible for the Spring Fling condom mural?
A: Why thank you for asking, yes we are. Each year for Spring Fling, the Dime Store volunteers construct a beautiful mural out of condoms, lube, and dental dams in the campus center. Students can take what they need from the mural. Check out our Facebook page for pictures!

Q: There's an item I really like that is out of stock or not offered at the Dime Store.
A: Feel free to leave us a note with questions or suggestions at the end of your order.

Q: Can I get involved with the Dime Store?
A: Yes! We love having new volunteers. Message us on Facebook or email our co-heads (emails below) to find out more.

Q: I'm having a problem with my order, or have a question that isn't answered here.
A: Feel free to leave us a note at the end of your order, message us on Facebook, or email our lovely co-heads Eleanor Broughton (eb4858@bard.edu) and Emily Tomasi (et9360@bard.edu). We love helping to answer your questions, and we welcome your polite and engaged feedback.
