Hey ladies, what's your condom style?

Yesterday, mi ask Pam what Valentine's Day (Feb 14) and Safer Sex Week (Feb 11-17) have in common. All Pam do was laugh, and sey she nah buy nuh gift this year. Well, for your information people, Valentine's Day and Safer Sex Week have one common denominator - SEX! And wherever there is sex there must be a condom. There are too many risks when you don't use a condom. Risks like unwanted pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections including HIV/AIDS.

By the way, pon a serious level, we ladies need to talk up to our partners about safe sex. After all, we are just as responsible for whatever happens. We must also walk wid wi condom inna wi purse. You here that Pam? Trust mi, I always have my condom, whether it is the male condom or the female condom name Femidom.

Yes, Femidom! I notice it scarce these days but it is one of those safe sex options for us ladies because we can insert it four to six hours before sex, and the man will neva know because it feel like the natural thing. Fi real! Check it out! Ask your pharmacist about Femidom, you might just be able to find one in time for Valentine's Day. Enjoy Valentine's week people and remember safe sex every time.
