Now, you don’t have an excuse not to practice safe sex. NYC health department launched a mobile app that points you where to find protection.

New York City health department shared today the news about the mobile app which will point to people where they can get free condoms. The announcement of the “NYC Condom Finder” app came simultaneously with the celebration of Valentine’s Day, which is also dubbed as the National Condom Awareness Day.

NYC Health Department said that:

“NYC Condom Finder [is] a free smartphone application designed to locate the five nearest New York City venues that distribute free NYC Condoms. The application allows users to determine their location through either global positioning system (GPS) technology on their smartphone or by manually entering an address. The application also provides specific directions to each venue (the user can choose from walking, driving or public transportation directions), the hours of operation for each location, the types of safer sex products available and helpful tips on condom usage.”

NYC Assistant Health Commissioner Dr. Monica Sweeney mentioned that this project was made for New York City to be known as “the safest city in the world to have sex.” She added that, “A lot of people come here for that, so we want them to practice safer sex.”

New York City has distributed approximately three million condoms per month in the last five years according to a report by Reuters.
