safe sex

Nasty Gal has launched a collection promoting safe sex, and it is the best thing ever.

The discussion of female pleasure has become more prominent (thank god) as traditional taboos give way to modern day.

It’s time we are more open about sexual health in general as well as specifically for women.

The fashion brand has joined forces with MTV Staying Alive to promote the importance of female pleasure and protected sex.

And what better way to spread awareness then wearing hot and trendy clothes.

The super sexy slogan tees and sweatshirts are already on sale.

MTV Staying Alive is a HIV prevention charity that finds and funds youth-led projects that educate young people globally on HIV and AIDS.  

The two have teamed up to raise money for the cause via proceeds from their new collection.

When you buy a tee or sweat, €5 of the sales from the item will be donated to the charity to help continue the important work they do.  

Saying things like “Wrap it Up”, “Love Sex, Love Yourself”, and “Sex-ed”, these tops are slaying the sexual health game.

MTV Staying Alive’s mission is to educate and empower young people on HIV prevention and to make safe, healthy choices when it comes to sex.

So, let’s keep the good vibes going. Because contrary to parents’ popular belief, abstinence isn’t the only option.

Help us let kids know that if you have sex, you will NOT get chlamydia and die (if confused, please see Mean Girls like a normal human being).

The entire collection can be purchased on Nasty Gal, so add a few to your shopping cart and break the silence surrounding just how amazing sex is.


It's time to double check your johnnies.

A recall for two types of Durex condoms, Durex Real Feel – Latex-Free and Durex Latex Free Polyisoprene has been issued by the Health Products Regulatory Authority (HPRA).

It comes after fears arose over the affected condoms potentially bursting as they come closer to the end of their shelf life. 

If you have purchased "Durex Real Feel – Latex-Free" and "Durex Latex Free Polyisoprene" condoms, please check their batch number to see if they are amongst the recall.

The batch number for the Latex Free are as follows: Durex Latex Free 12-Pack – Sku number 3014272: Batch numbers 1000444367 – expiry February 2021 and 1000433145 expires January – 2021.

As for Durex Real Feel 12-Pack: the Sku number is 3014277 –  Batch numbers 1000419930 January 2021, 1000444367 February 2021 and 1000416206 December 2020.

The HPRA is urging consumers to check the date at the bottom of the outer packaging and the brand.

You should also check the foil wrapping to see if they are amongst the recall batch.

If you are in possession of the condoms with the brands/batch numbers, the authorities have advised people to “immediately discontinue the use of the affected product” and return them to the store where they were purchased for a full refund.

The regulatory authority has cautioned that six and 18 pack boxes of the Real Feel condoms on sale in the UK could be on Irish shelves. 

The HPRA is “requesting consumers to also check the below list of batch numbers. Although the HPRA have received no confirmation to date that the following batch numbers are on the Irish market, we strongly believe these products may have reached the Irish market,” its statement warned.

The batch numbers for the UK products are Durex Real Feel six pack: 1000438054, Durex Real Feel 12 Pack: 1000444370, 1000474804. Durex Real Feel 18 Pack: 1000434066, 1000430479 and Durex Real Feel 18 Pack (RF Tag): 1000430479

Safe sex is sexy!


When we think of selection boxes, the confectionery-filled kind springs to mind.

Durex has come up with a whole new concept for the term, with its new festive Sexlection box hitting Superdrug just in time for the holidays.

Unfortunately, you won't find any edible treats in this box of tricks.

Instead of Curly-wurlys and Crunchies, Durex's festive treat is full of "intimate items," including condoms, orgasm-enhancing lubricant and a vibrator. 

The sex-positive Christmas gift is confusing Twitter users, who are bemused by its existence. 

"The new Durex 'sexlection' box takes the innocence out of the chocolate selection boxes I've had every year," said one.

Others have pointed out that the box seems "inappropriate," as a selection box is usually considered a gift from children.

"I find your Selection Box idea to be in bad taste…it looks like it should appeal to kids…not appropriate, I think. Not chocolate," said one disgruntled tweeter.


With Unicode refusing to create an actual condom emoji to protect sexters’ beloved aubergines, the world’s leading sexual health brand has sourced an umbrella-shaped loophole.

To mark World AIDS Day 2016, Durex is encouraging the public to share the “Umbrella with Raindrops” emoji as an unofficial symbol of safe sex.

A recent survey conducted by the contraception giant revealed more than 75 percent of 16 to 35-year-olds use emojis when discussing sex.

And with almost half of that age group believing HIV could never affect them – despite 2.1 million people becoming infected with the virus in the last year – it seem sexters are in desperate need of anything which encourages the promotion of safe sex.

Speaking of the venture, Durex Global Category Director, Volker Sydow, said: “At Durex we believe that for this World AIDS Day identifying the unofficial safe sex emoji is an important step that helps to empower young people to put safe sex back on the agenda, supporting the fight to reduce the spread of HIV and AIDS.”

“We are asking people to show their support for the cause by using this unofficial safe sex emoji and sharing the hashtag #CondomEmoji.”


Remember the ice bucket challenge? Well, there is a new challenge in town and it involves your favourite form of contraception. 

Yep, we are here to inform you about the latest BIZARRE social media craze; the condom challenge.

Hmm, we can't imagine celebs getting on board with this one. 

The latest challenge involves participants dropping a water-filled condom onto the head of a friend or partner. 

Why you ask? Well, while the ice bucket challenge raised awareness for ALS, the #condomchallenge is looking to promote safer sex. 

The purpose of the challenge is to demonstrate that if a condom laden with water can fit around someone's HEAD and not break, there is really no excuse for unsafe sex.

Oh and also because it is hilarious to watch. 

The trend was first spotted last week and has since gained serious momentum as thousands of videos have been posted to various social media sites. 

And it would seem that many can see the positives of the challenge. 

Make sure you take care if trying it at home!

Do you this it's absolutely stupid or will you be taking up the challenge?
