National Condom Week (again)

I don't want to start measuring my years in national condom weeks, but it seems that some things you have no control of and the stark realisation of the fact NCW is here again has set me off on a where did the last year go path - all i can conclude is that the last year has gone ridiculously quickly, and as this is my third national condom week since being at Brook, maybe it is whilst being at Brook that time goes so quickly....

For the last two years I have suggested that every question should have a condom related answer during NCW - a couple of people who read this blog commented (privately) that it was a stupid idea and you tried it anyway and it was good fun. On that basis maybe some more of you should try it this year and share your experiences on this blog.....

and if that doesn't take your fancy here is the link to Durex's Great British Sex Survey http://www.durexsurvey.co.uk/

I actually tried this and when my partner asked "what should we have for tea" and I replied "Well, dotted, ribbed, or flavored" he suddenly became very perplexed, but I kept it up and it certainly got the conversation with my friends flowing.

Thanks for letting me know - I am sure it was a surprise and great that it got the conversation going with your friends. You don't have to wait until NCW next year to try it again - choose your own day to talk about condoms and keep those conversations going. The more people like you talk about condoms and safer sex, the easier it will become.

It certainly will Simon, I really admire the work you do!

And I'm over the moon that my nearest Brook service, now that I've relocated to London!!, offers services up to 25!

Happy times
