National Condom Day
National Condom Day - Valentine' Day is upon us. Valentine's Day is the day for lovers and whereas there will be cards and flowers exchanged and more than a few candle lit dinners there will be a bit of 'nooky' too. Those who have read Valentine's Day Tiger will be aware that Valentine's Day is also National Condom Day. It is also International Condom Day.
Although the condom has always had a role to play in sexual health, it's primary purpose has been as a method of birth control. The condom provides choices in family planning but it also prevents pregnancies where the idea of producing a child is the very last thing in a lustful mind.
Our world is in a mess. Pollution, starvation, reduced resources, forest loss, over fishing, habitat destruction, overcrowding, climate change. All are interlinked and hand in hand with the undeniable fact that there are just too many of us on our very crowded planet. Lets not have any more unwanted births started this Valentine's Day. It is National Condom Day.
Wear A Condom To Help Save Wildlife. Remember that 2010 was the Year of the Tiger and 2011 is the year of the Rabbit. 2013 is the year of the snake... a bit symbolic. 2014 is the year of the horse. With more people more forests will be felled, more rivers polluted, more wilderness destroyed. Think before you make love, before lust clouds your judgement. Wear a Condom and Save a Tiger and remember what they say about Rabbits....Save Our Planet.
