National Condom Week, February 14-21, 2010

February 12, 2010 at 9:47am
February 14th – 21st is National Condom Week! Originating at the University of California, Berkeley in the ‘70s, National Condom Week is a great time to focus on the importance of safe sex. With Valentine’s Day serving as the kick-off for National Condom Week, we’re reminded to love ourselves enough to prevent the spread of sexually-transmitted diseases and avoid unintended pregnancy.

Planned Parenthood is doing its part in celebrating National Condom Week by bringing you the information you need to get informed, get involved and get protected. Our fans are our best ambassadors and we need your help to get the safe sex message out there. Here is how you can get in on the condom week action.
