Western Australia’s National Condom Day campaign is coordinated by SHQ (Sexual Health Quarters) and takes place every year on Feb 14th. A state-wide celebration of sexual health and wellness, National Condom Day is the perfect chance to raise awareness of healthy relationships, and safe, consensual sex.
This social media toolkit is designed to help you participate in the campaign and promote its messages within your community.

National Condom Day 2021 themes and key messages
There are four themes for National Condom Day this year, each one being an important element for creating positive, safe, and delicious sexual experiences. National Condom Day aims to raise awareness of the following key messages around these themes:
- Condom use – Make sure you’re always sweet for condoms and dental dams. They’re the most effective way of helping prevent Sexually Transmissible Infections (STIs). Condoms can also help prevent pregnancy.
- Consent – Consent comes first – even when you’re on a roll. Communicate with your partner/s and check in regularly.
- Pleasure – Everyone deserves that fuzzy feeling. Make pleasure a priority for you and your partner/s.
- STI testing – Regular STI testing goes hand in hand with being sexually active. Speak to your GP or sexual health clinic for a simple health check.
- National Condom Day: 14th February 2021
