NYC is Preventing HIV

I am loving New York City right now. Not only are they ditching trans fat (wahoo), but when I took a trip there last weekend, I found these in their public bathrooms. Free latex condoms!

When I checked out the NYC Condom website, I discovered that New York City is the first city to brand its very own condom. Isn't that awesome?

They are being distributed by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. You can pick them up at participating locations for FREE. The campaign began on Valentine's Day this year, but as you can see, it's still going strong.

I love that NYC is doing its part to stop the spread of STIs like HIV. Maybe some other cities will follow suit.

Food for thought...and maybe I've seen to many SVU episodes. But, do you think this will increase the rate of rape and sexual assault if a person has more chance at anonymity? Just curious, I wonder if sex-based crimes will increase.

This is a good idea...hopefully this will increase awareness and safe sex.

They should do something since the city has a high percentage of people infected with hiv.

The only time I ever got free condoms was in college...and to get them, we'd have to ask our very virgin RA for them.
