If February 14th is globally recognized as a day of love, then what day is globally recognized for sex?
No, it isn’t St. Patrick’s Day, Halloween, New Year’s Eve, or the 5th night of Hanukkah. Thanks to the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, February 13th is now world-renowned as International Condom Day. So it’s not just sex the being celebrated – it’s safe sex! The most
boring, disease-free kind of sex! Kidding aside, the idea behind the non-traditional holiday is an aggressive push for “100% access to free condoms worldwide”, an idea that everyone can get behind outside of a certain sect of Republicans.
For our own celebration, we’re showcasing a few foreign condom ads all about the Jimmy hats. Happy procreating!
