Did you know that more than 1 million +Trojan Condoms are manufactured every day?! We did not! This peek beneath the sheets on how #condoms are made is quite interesting!

Sometimes more is not always better. Always avoid using two #condoms at once or a female condom at the same time. It can cause friction so they're more likely to split or slip off!

On +Apartment Therapy you can buy classy #condom dispensers! Who knew? Think Cuckoo Clock but instead of an announcement you receive a condom!

When it comes to some key moments in the bedroom, we all know that time is of the essence. Here we round up a few gadgets to cut down on the time spent wrangling with a cardboard box, to maximize... a different kind of wrangling.

#HIVpositive people will often tell you that #stigma is worse than the diagnosis. We cannot stress enough that HIV cannot be transmitted through sweat, saliva or urine. #HIV is only found in the following body fluids of an infected person: semen, blood, vaginal and anal fluids and breast milk.

#StandUpToHIV -> avert.org/about-hiv-aids/what-hiv-aids
What is HIV? HIV is a virus that gradually attacks the immune system, which is our body’s natural defence against illness. If a person becomes infected with HIV, they will find it harder to fight off infections and diseases. The virus destroys a type of white blood cell called a T-helper cell and makes copies of itself inside them. T-helper cells are also referred to as CD4 cells.1

We really like the reasons behind Arizona's new ads on #HIV prevention! Fear-based messaging can and will deter people from receiving the education they need to understand HIV and eradicate the stigma that surrounds it! See the ads here!

#AIDS  
In its new campaign, the Arizona Department of Health Services turned away from “fear-based messaging” to encourage people to visit a website that offers H.I.V. testing information.

In the U.S.A., young gay and bisexual men, aged 13-24, rates of #HIV-infection are up by a shocking 132.5%. Even though we hate reading statistics like that. We take comfort in the accompanied studies that found out that teens who get comprehensive sex education make better choices about sex: bit.ly/1nwProv

The +AIDS Healthcare Foundation put up billboards associating #apps like #Tinder with STIs. Since that call out, Tinder added a new Health Safety section on their website! Now you have another way to locate the nearest place to get tested for STIs!
