#CondomDay2021 Resources

Sexual Health Week and National Condom Day.

WA Sexual Health Week will run from February 14 – 21. The ongoing theme for WA Sexual Health Week is Safety, Pleasure and Respect, celebrating and promoting sexual health in its entirety. You can order free Safe Sex Packs from the WA AIDS Council, or you can visit their website for more information and resources. National Condom Day is held annually during Sexual Health Week on February 14. #CondomDay21 is a celebration of healthy relationships, and safe, pleasurable, and consensual sex. The Sexual Health Quarters website is filled with National Condom Day content including downloadable resources, creative events and activity ideas to promote the day within the community. A great resource to share is The Department of Health’s suite of STI and BBV whiteboard videos. Videos are available on the topics of HIVSTIsHepatitis BHepatitis C and more.

How to put on a condom – A step by step guide.

Sequencing activity

How to put on a condom. A step by step guide

You and your partner both agree to have sex and use a condom

Get a condom

Check the expiry date

Check the package is sealed and undamaged. (You should be able to feel and air bubble, like a chip packet).

Carefully tear open the packet with your hands

Check the condom is the right way up (your finger will be able to pull the condom down).

With one hand, pinch the top of the condom (to allow room for ejaculate) and place on the top of the penis.

With the other hand, roll the condom all the way down to the base of the penis.

Apply water-based lube- if you want!

Do you consent to sex? Does your partner consent to sex?

If you're both into it - have sex.

Roll the condom off, before the penis goes soft. Make sure any ejaculate stays inside the condom.

Throw the used condom in the bin.
