National Condom Day!

February 14th is my favorite holiday of the year: National Condom Day! (That other one is pretty cool, too.) Here are some quick tips about condoms for greater efficacy and pleasure:

1.

2. Lube prevents condom breakage and can make sex more enjoyable. There are many kinds to try, but make sure that you use only water- or silicone-based lubricant with condoms (oil-based lubes will destroy condoms).

Got more questions, or need any safer sex supplies? Stop by the office and chat with Jessica or one of the peer-eds! Also, remember that there is a basket of safer sex supplies outside the office for your more anonymous supply pickup needs.

If you’re on campus, stop by Butler Plaza from 11:30 AM – 4 PM for free info & hot cocoa, plus an opportunity to advocate for increased AIDS treatment funding! Check out the work that Student Global AIDS Campaign (CUSGAC) and GlobeMed are doing by stopping by tomorrow.
