EVERY 60 SECONDS MORE THAN 17 YOUNG AMERICANS CONTRACT A SEXUALLY TRANSMITTED DISEASE (STD)
SAFER SEX PIONEER CONDOMANIA FIGHTS BACK WITH INNOVATIVE OFFERS DESIGNED TO CAPTURE THE ATTENTION OF YOUNG MEN FROM COAST TO COAST
LOS ANGELES, September 14th, 2010 - This year more than 9 million new cases of STDs will be contracted by American men and women ages 15 to 24,
accounting for nearly half of all newly acquired STDs in the U.S. The number of reported cases of STDs in 2008 was the highest on record and the Centers for
Disease Control (CDC) estimates that more than 70 million Americans currently have a STD.
Condomania ( http://secure.condomania.com ) is once again ready to fight back with an irresistible
offer that is sure to appeal to millions of college men nationwide; 48 brand name condoms for less than $.34 each and 12 issues of Playboy or Maxim magazine
at no additional cost!
Since 1991, Condomania has been a pioneer in promoting safer sex awareness. Now in its 20th year, America's first condom store is once again using creative
tactics to promote condom usage, especially among college students.
This week, Condomania will launch The Condomania MegaMix ( http://secure.condomania.com/offers/supermix/082010/ ) featuring
48 premium brand name condoms (Trojan, LifeStyles, and Durex) for only $16 ($50 Value). Plus, every order includes a one-year subscription to Playboy or Maxim magazine at no additional cost. Together, this
package has a value over $100.
According to the CDC, consistent and correct use of a male latex condom reduces the risk of STDs and HIV transmission. Yet many young people are reluctant to
address sexual health issues openly due to social and cultural stigmas and taboos. The CDC advocates that to successfully prevent STDs, all members of the
community must do their part with strong leadership and innovative thinking.
"1 in 3 sexually active high school students did not use a condom the last time they had sex. I'm sure they didn't know about Condomania! The MegaMix
is another example of Condomania's youth-friendly packages and medically sound products to ensure young adults have what they need to stay sexually safe
and healthy," comments Deb Levine, MA, Executive Director and Founder of ISIS-Inc.org, whose mission is to provide leadership, innovation,
educational resources and research in online sexual health promotion.
