If we made a list of important topics that were tabooed in the world, sex, especially safe sex, would definitely top the list. We shy away from talking about this subject, and this often led to negligence when it comes to spreading knowledge about the importance of safe sex, and how it can benefit us. This is the reason that AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) marked February 13 as the International Condom Day. Each year, the day is associated with different themes highlighting the importance of safe sex. Condoms are the most easily accessible and reliable way of enjoying an active sexual life without spreading STDs. Organisations around the world have been taking various steps to promote the use of condoms.
