Adulttoymegastore offers Kiwis free condoms for World AIDS Day

Unprotected sex is the leading cause of HIV infections in New Zealand, and recent statistics show that 77% of New Zealanders don’t use condoms regularly. That’s why Adulttoymegastore is encouraging Kiwis to “rubber up” by giving away free condoms this World AIDS Day.

World AIDS Day, which falls on Friday 1 December, is a day for people around the world to unite in the fight against HIV and AIDS, show support for the 3,400 New Zealanders living with it, and mourn those who have lost their lives to the disease.

New Zealand adult toy retailer Adulttoymegastore is contributing to AIDS prevention by offering free condoms to New Zealanders through their website this Friday, explains Adulttoymegastore product manager Emma Hewitt.

“On World AIDS Day we will be offering free 10 packs of Glyde condoms to New Zealanders. They can be ordered online and will be delivered discreetly to them, all they need to do is use the code ‘SAFESEX’ at checkout and pay the shipping fee,” says Emma.

“Wearing a condom during sex is key to preventing sexually transmitted infections and diseases, so we’re trying to make having safe sex easier for New Zealanders by delivering free condoms to their door, so there’s no excuse for unprotected sex.”

The New Zealand AIDS Foundation states that condoms are the most effective method of protection from HIV and other STIs during anal or vaginal sex, and statistics from the Durex 2017 Global Sex Survey revealed that only 23% of Kiwis use condoms regularly, ranking New Zealand the third worst country in the world for condom use, tied with the UK.

“We were shocked to see the statistics for condom use in New Zealand, and we’re encouraging Kiwis to rubber-up for the sake of their sexual health. We thought World AIDS Day was a good opportunity to remind people how important it really is,” Emma explains.

“We’re in the business of adult pleasure, which goes hand-in-hand with sexual health. A healthy and safe sex life is a happy one, and we want to remind New Zealanders of the importance of using condoms, as well as using, cleaning and caring for their adult toys safely and hygienically.”

Adulttoymegastore is giving away free 10-packs of condoms through their website on World AIDS Day, Friday 1 December, 2017. Use voucher code SAFESEX at checkout at www.adulttoymegastore.co.nz. Shipping fee applies. While stocks last. Not valid in conjunction with any other offer.

For more information, call 0800 238 588, email info@adulttoymegastore.co.nz or visit www.adulttoymegastore.co.nz.

Ends.

Joseph Cederwall Review: NZSO Plays Zappa

The first of the NZSO’s Shed Series concerts at the more informal and intimate space of Wellington's Shed 6 last Friday night featured music composed by, or with a connection to Frank Zappa. Zappa, a psychedelic rock legend, activist and popular culture figure and all round colourful character, was an excellent choice for the concert’s theme of innovation. More>>

Scoop Review of Books: Martin Edmonds' The Expatriates

This book is an extension of, and tribute to, the life’s work of James McNeish. Without sacrificing any degree of authorial independence, the result is gracefully written, handsomely produced, and likely to propagate many further works of its kind. More>>

Joe Cederwall Review: WOMAD 2018 - Harmony of Difference (part 1)

A friend described WOMAD as his “favourite white middle class celebration of diversity.” There is certainly an echo of truth to this as the crowd is still largely white and middle class, but this WOMAD for me represented that a better world is possible ... More>>

Considering the available resources, this is a decidedly hit-and-miss affair, mainly due to some highly questionable curatorial decisions. In their overweening wish to "push boundaries," Charlotte Davy and Megan Tamati-Quennell have made a number of serious miscalculations by ignoring a basic rule - keep it simple. More>>
