maybe it's time to rename the group mass-confusion.frugal-living :-)

as i recall, condoms have an "80% success rate" for couples who want to
avoid pregnancy, ie only 20% become pregnant _over a year_, so the real
failure rate per use is much lower, on the order of 1-exp(ln(0.8)/100)
= 0.002, ie 0.2% for 100 trials.

however, completely unprotected sex only results in pregnancy 14% of the
time, so condoms are probably unfrugal and overrated for aids protection,
compared to say, hiv tests, with a 0.2%/0.14 = 1.6% chance of exchanging
precious bodily fluids.
