Sexual Health For The Zombie Apocalypse

Thanks to Wikimedia user Pikolas for the image.

As you may be aware, the CDC has a zombie preparedness page. However, as Dr. Jen Gunter points out, they neglect to give sexual health advice, so she fills in the gap by advising us to be prepared with condoms, menstrual supplies, and batteries for our fave toys (since not every survivor you meet will be your type). My only concern is that this advice seems overwhelmingly aimed at women, while men, too, would benefit from having emergency supplies for both sexual safety and pleasure on hand.
