New York's Hottest New 'Wrapper'

Its been too long not to comment on New York City being the first city to brand its very own condom! This is great news. Why?

Let Dr. Thomas Frieden, New York City's Health Commissioner tell you:

"Condoms can prevent HIV, other sexually transmitted infections, and unintended pregnancies. Abstinence is failsafe, and reducing the number of sexual partners reduces risk of infections. But for sexually active people, using a condom is key to staying healthy."

The condoms can be obtained at these locations. For novices, the "how to" page can be found here. This is a link to the main website

Most of us in NYC support this action by the city - likely, there are people out there who don't. What are some of your concerns and objections?
