No glove, no love! National Condom Week is the same week as Valentine’s Day in the USA.

In fact, the entire month of February is National Condom Month. Originally started on the campus of the University of California – Berkeley, it has grown into an educational event for high schools, colleges, AIDS groups, sexually transmitted disease awareness groups, pharmacies, and condom manufacturers.
