The second season of Insecure has electrified the Twittersphere with #TeamLawrence debates and recaps, but the appearance and lack of condom use in the latest episode has sparked a serious dialogue on sexual health.
In a recent article on Very Smart Brothas titled “In Insecure, Where Are The Condoms?” writer Jozen Cummings points out all of the instances where the “no glove, no love” ideology seemed to be completely tossed out in favor of spontaneity.

Many people applauded Issa’s thoughtful and respectful response to the masses.
Others wondered why it needed to be addressed in the first place.
