SHOCKING: Birth Control Costs For Women Versus Men
Wow, the calculation they use for the women-to-men cost at the bottom assumes men use one condom every day from age 18 to 65. Which is — sorry, guys — total B.S. Assuming the average condom use over a man's lifetime is (realistically) more like half of that number, then it would cost ~$8,500 to use condoms over a lifetime. That means it's more than three times as expensive to be on The Pill than it is to use condoms. That's a pretty skewed state of affairs!
