Planned Parenthood Arizona encourages individuals to have a happy and safe Valentine’s Day. Safe sex is one way to say, “I love you” and “I care about your health,” this Valentine’s Day.
In an effort to encourage safe sex, Planned Parenthood Arizona is distributing more than 6,000 free condoms to popular Valentine’s Day destinations to have available to their customers. The campaign supports the important, yet often overlooked dialogue of using condoms on Valentine’s Day and every day.
National Condom Week, which runs from Feb. 14 to Feb. 21, aims to bring the necessity of proper condom use to the forefront of sexual health discussions. Of the 19 million Americans who contract an STI every year, 50 percent of them are young people, ages 15 – 25, despite this age group only making up one-quarter of the sexually active population.
By providing free Proper Attire™ condoms to trendy Valentine’s Day locations, individuals who plan on being sexually active can celebrate the holiday safely. STDs can be avoided when sexually active individuals use a condom every time.
At the end of the day, Planned Parenthood Arizona is here to help you have a safe and fun Valentine's! So remember:
- Use condoms. You can get condoms at any Planned Parenthood Arizona health center and be sure you know how to put them on. For more information about condoms and how to use them watch this video.
- Back up your birth control with emergency contraception. Get Plan B now, just in case your Plan A doesn’t work out like you expected. Planned Parenthood has Plan B and will be open on New Year’s Day for all your needs.
