Unprotected sex is the leading cause of HIV infections in Australia and yet, one survey says 52% of sexually active Australians don’t use condoms regularly. That’s why Adulttoymegastore is encouraging Aussies to practice safe sex by giving away free condoms this World AIDS Day.
World AIDS Day, which falls on Sunday 1 December, is a day for people around the world to unite in the fight against HIV stigma and encourage regular testing and the use of prevention, show support for the estimated 27, 545 Australians living with HIV, and remember those who we’re lost.
Adult toy retailer Adulttoymegastore is contributing to HIV prevention by offering free condoms to Australians through their website on December 1. “On World AIDS Day we will be offering free 10 packs of Glyde condoms to Aussies. They can be ordered online and will be delivered discreetly to them, all they need to do is use the code ‘SAFESEX’ at checkout and pay the shipping fee,” says Adulttoymegastore owner Nicola Relph.
“Wearing a condom during sex is key to preventing sexually transmitted infections and diseases, so we’re trying to make having safe sex easier for Australians by delivering free condoms to their door, so there’s no excuse for unprotected sex.”
Condoms are one of the most effective methods of preventing the transmission of HIV and other STIs during anal or vaginal sex, and statistics from the Durex 2017 Global Sex Survey revealed that only 48% of Australians use condoms regularly. A recent study of single, heterosexual men in Australia found only 35 per cent used a condom at their last sexual encounter with a casual partner.
“We were shocked to see the statistics for condom use in Australia and we’re encouraging Aussies to rubber-up for the sake of their sexual health. We thought World AIDS Day was a good opportunity to remind people how important it really is,” Nicola explains.
“We’re in the business of adult pleasure, which goes hand-in-hand with sexual health. A healthy and safe sex life is a happy one, and we want to remind Australians of the importance of using condoms, as well as using, cleaning and caring for their adult toys safely and hygienically.”
