When we tell people that Valentine’s Day is also National Condom Day, their first reaction is usually to laugh. We want National Condom Day to be light-hearted and fun. We want people to say to their family, friends and partners “OMG did you know there’s a day called National Condom Day?” This may be the first time someone has felt comfortable enough to discuss condoms openly and that’s exactly the aim!
We hope this day will get more people comfortable with buying, carrying, talking about and hopefully using condoms during sexual activity.
Now there is method (aka research) to our madness if you want to check out our National Condom Day webpage for more information (www.shq.org.au/srhwa/nationalcondomday) but we want to get on with the fun stuff.
Would you like to win a $200 JB Hi-Fi voucher? The beauty of this prize is the online ordering and delivery, which means anyone in Western Australia can join in! There are a few terms and conditions on our webpage but basically we want to see how you’re preparing for or celebrating your National Condom Day!
Again, we want you to have fun. You can take as many photos as you like (ahem… keep it PG obviously) as long as you’re promoting safe sex and condoms. All you have to do is upload them to Facebook and/or Instagram, like/follow our pages and include the tag #ncd2016. The winner is chosen at random, but originality and creativity is always appreciated!!
If you’re struggling for ideas or inspiration, then here are some things to consider:
- Take photos if you have done a National Condom Day display or if you’re running an event (our campaign materials will be helpful!)
- If you come across any National Condom Day resources or events in your community, why not capture the moment?
- Check out some of the entries from a previous condom competition #mycondomandi
