NYC Gets The Valentines Day Message – No Candy or Flowers, Just Condoms


Ready for that romantic Valentines Day? Got the Flowers? Check. Candy? Check. Bottle of Wine? Check. Free Condom from the New York City employee by the subway? Check.

You heard me right, New York City is spending city resources giving away condoms at train stations in New York City today. And these are not just any condom for Valentines Day that New York City has decide to give out, but a special NYC version that has a special wrapper that can be tracked.

If that just is not the height of romance, I do not know what is.

Taking advantage of the holiday for lovers, Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s administration was to unveil the official city condom in midtown Manhattan, where volunteers were to hand them out free at Fifth Avenue and 50th Street.
The health department’s condom program already distributes 1.5 million free condoms each month, but the regular wrapper doesn’t allow for tracking the effectiveness of the effort. Officials hope that will change with the new design, which is said to revolve around a subway theme, with different colors for the various train lines.
Health Commissioner Thomas Frieden recently told The Associated Press that the distinctive wrapper will provide the opportunity to include questions about the condom on the city’s annual health survey. via WCBS NEWSRADIO 880

      Oh Geez, When are the people going to see that some of these politicians treat us like we have no common sense?

      Joe Bear:

      You’re so cute! How refreshing in a world that
      lives by the lyrics of R. Kelly, when he sings,

      “I don’t see nothin’ wrong –
      with a little bump and grind”

      we still have hopelessly romantics like you.

      Happy Valentine’s Day!
