Abstract Background Male condoms are effective in preventing common sexually transmitted infections STIs and unintended pregnancy, if used correctly and consistently. However, condom use errors and problems are common and young people report negative experiences, such as reduced pleasure. The Kinsey Institute Home-Based Exercises for Responsible Sex KIHERS is a novel condom promotion intervention for young women, which aims to reduce condom errors and problems, increase self-efficacy and improve attitudes towards condoms, using a pleasure-focussed approach. Methods A repeated-measures single-arm design was used, with a baseline T1 and two follow-up assessments T2 and T3conducted 4 weeks and 8 weeks post intervention over a 3-month period. Ten process evaluation interviews were conducted post intervention. Condom use errors and problems decreased, self-efficacy increased and attitudes towards condoms improved significantly. However, motivation to use condoms did not change.
