Promoting Sexual Health in Africa

Intelligent Vending followers will know that our company has always had an interest in promoting sexual health, and we’ve tried to make a contribution where we can across the world. It’s great therefore to hear from Christopher Wells regarding the work he’s undertaken in Southern Ethiopia. Chris has kindly provided a link to findings from the research work titled Prophylactic Procurement of University Students in Southern Ethiopia: Stigma and the Value of Condom Machines on Campus that he and colleagues have conducted. Some of it’s a bit technical, but the messages come through very strong. We’re really pleased to have to have provided the condom vending machines for this research (Twist2Vend – B5m and B5m2 models), and it’s good to know that such simple, low cost (and British made) machines could stand up so well to the rigours of a tropical environment, and make a positive contribution to improving sexual health in the African continent.

Looking to a Safe Future with Condom Vending Machines

Fifty years ago, people knew little about the benefits of condoms and birth control was something that not many people invested in. Today, the condom industry is booming and birth control comes in various forms.

What does that tell you? It means that sex is an important issue and no-one wants unwanted pregnancies or nasty diseases. Sex is no longer the taboo subject it once was and good practice with regards to sexual health is now more commonplace than ever. This is a trend that may intensify in the future as the world’s population continues to rapidly increase and sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and infections (STIs) affect more and more people. This shift to a more relaxed attitude has resulted in an increase in the frequency and likelihood of promiscuous behaviour.

Early identification of these trends may help you take advantage and maximise your profit with the use of condom vending machines. For the public sector, however, condom vending machines can be seen as an essential service, without the need to generate profit (i.e. ensuring good sexual health practice at very low cost).

Condom Vending

Condom vending can be a profitable business; washroom machines account for a significant amount of sales from vending machines. In addition to this, some of the best profit margins can be found with condom machine products. Consumables such as herbal sexual enhancers have seen a sharp increase in popularity recently, but of course, this type of product will sell better in some places than others (clubs vs. offices, for instance).

Possibly the most important factor for maximising sales from condom vending machines is to target your key demographic effectively with the right products.

Sanitary items and condoms will often sell in most places and can be a good choice. However, washroom machines can be fairly versatile. If products are properly packaged and fit within the maximum vend dimensions, many different items can be sold from condom vending machines to better target your audience. Examples in the past have included: swimming equipment, disposable shoes, and adult novelty toys.

Pub and Club Vending

Late night social venues such as bars and nightclubs can make for some of the most profitable locations to situate vending machines. With a large number of visitors and a ‘captive’ audience, significant sales can be achieved with the right choice of products in the vending machines.

Lending a big hand in the success of vending in bars, pubs and nightclubs is the ‘spending frame of mind’ that consumers typically bring to the venue. Vending provides a great opportunity to let go and relieve the burden of all that loose change gathered from the last round of drinks. This can be very effective for sales of novelty items and condoms.

The most popular items sold through wall mounted machines in toilets/washrooms are usually condoms & novelty lines. A good tip is not to forget condoms in the in the female washrooms; they often sell just as well as in the gents (this is surprisingly frequently overlooked). Other popular products sold through washroom or condom vending machines are chewing gum, mints and male/female adult toys. These lines of products can be ideal for busy pubs, bars & nightclubs.

Are You Vending Condoms with Integrity?

Condom vending is a common activity in businesses, pubs, restaurants and nightclubs. It is suitable for any establishment with toilets or washrooms which experience frequent usage by staff or visitors.

Selling condoms from vending machines can be a very profitable business: costs are low, margins are high and if the machine is installed in the right location, demand remains consistent.

As the business of condoms (prophylactics) can be a sensitive (!) and a sometimes controversial subject, it is important to apply careful thought and consideration to all the related choices and decisions involved, ensuring full compliance with government rules and regulations so as to avoid any potential negative consequences.

There are various ways to tell the authenticity and provenance of products such as condoms, which is vital to do if you are considering selling them. Supplying defective or substandard condoms could have potentially devastating, even life threatening consequences for your consumers and could seriously affect your company’s image and reputation.

On this page we have provided a basic overview of information relating to condom machines and the part they play in our business.
