Watch out! There’s a condom carrying celebrity about

If you live in a major city in the UK don’t be surprised if this weekend a celebrity bearing condoms approaches you.

It’s part of the Condom Essential Wear campaign where condom hit squads are visiting places like Liverpool, Manchester, Birmingham, Sheffield, Newcastle, London and Portsmouth to give out designer bags stuffed with condoms and other goodies.

The hit squads are being joined by celebrities such as Leon Lopez, Zoe Lister, and Philip Oliver. All are helping to spread a safer sex message as well as giving out condoms.

The aim of the campaign is to get people comfortable with carrying and using condoms, so they’re less likely to have unprotected sex and contract sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Given the high rates of STIs in the UK the campaign is trying to encourage people to manage their own sexual health more effectively – so they know where to go and get condoms, and also where to get tested if they think they may have an STI.
