Spread the Power

As most of you know, I write for the Elexa Sexy Smart blog. There's a new campaign that just launched today that I think is an admirable one to help increase sexual safety in women. If you click on the links to the Elexa blog, you will find a coupon for $2.00 towards your purchase of an Elexa brand of condoms. So what's not to love? Help other women stay safe AND get high quality condoms at a reduced rate. There's good karma in here for everyone!

SexySmart means being responsible about your sexual health and enjoying a more intimate and pleasurable sexual experience on your own terms. As women are twice as likely as men to contract an STD, the makers of Trojan condoms want women to protect themselves and help protect others.

Beginning in October, when women (or men!) buy a box of Elexa condoms, we will give a box to women’s shelters and clinics, because no woman can afford to go uninformed and unprotected.

For every box of Elexa condoms purchased from now until December, the makers of Trojan will donate a box of Elexa condoms to Gifts In Kind - a minimum of 1 million condoms to help protect women in need. Gifts in Kind, the leader in the field of product philanthropy, will distribute these condoms to women across the United States who are at risk of STDs and unintended pregnancy and who may not have access to or the means for which to buy condoms.

Keeping Women SexySmart

In the U.S. alone, seven out of ten sex acts happen without a condom. As a result, the transmission of STDs is growing every year. The Elexa brand, from the makers of Trojan condoms, is focused on not only supplying women with the necessary tools, but also with educating them and encouraging sexually active women at risk of STDs and unintended pregnancy to use condoms more frequently.

To stay SexySmart, we encourage women (and men!) to log online to communicate with a variety of sexual advisors and their peers, ask questions and educate themselves about their sexual health:

Join our Cause to help stop the spread of STDs in women.

Together we can make a difference. By protecting ourselves, we can also protect each other- uniting to eradicate STDs in women.
