National Condom Day!

It’s the most wonderful day of the year on Thursday 2/14: National Condom Day!

Join CU Student Global AIDS Campaign (CUSGAC) and GlobeMed for National Condom Day on February 14th, 2013 from 11:30 AM to 4 PM outside Butler! (Rain location: Lerner Piano Lounge) We will be giving out free condoms and lube, safer sex info, and hot cocoa. You can also join SGAC’s campaign to sign & send valentines to senators asking them to stand up for global health funding and have your picture taken for GlobeMed’s upcoming celebration of World Day of Social Justice (February 20th).

In the spirit of National Condom Day, here are some safer sex tips!

1. Make sure you know how to use condoms correctly — always check the expiration date; pinch the tip of the condom while rolling it onto a penis to leave space to prevent breakage; hold onto the base of the condom when withdrawing. Got more questions? Learn more in this very comprehensive guide to condom use:

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).

3. Did you know you can make a dental dam from a condom? Learn how here:

Stop by on Thursday for more information, free stuff, and to show some love for global health by supporting our campaigns!
