There’s never a reason to not glove up. Safe sex is not only the smart thing to do; it’s also something that you can completely control. So let’s save the regrets for things that we can actually return in the stores.
Launching at Vena Cava’s Fall/Winter 2011 New York Fashion Week show, proceeds from the sale of PROPER ATTIRE® condoms benefit Planned Parenthood Federation of America.
Vena Cava joins the likes of designers Charlotte Ronson, Alexander Wang, Brian Reyes, Jeremy Scott, and Yigal Azrouël, who have all collaborated on collections for the condom brand. PROPER ATTIRE® has also collaborated for the past few years with the Keith Haring Foundation to feature his artwork in honor of World Aids Day. PROPER ATTIRE® condoms can be found at select hotels such as the Thompson Hotels and Morgans Hotel Group, as well as at cult fashion store Opening Ceremony and the Museum of Contemporary Art store in Los Angeles.
Fashionable packaging aside, PROPER ATTIRE® condoms are also reliable and effective. The condoms are FDA-tested and undergo rigorous quality assurance testing by the manufacturer as well as by independent laboratories. With increased awareness about the spread of sexually transmitted infections, the practice of safer sex is of the utmost importance. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about one person in the U.S. contracts HIV every 10 minutes; by the age of 25, one in two sexually active people will have contracted a sexually transmitted infection; moreover, one in two Americans will contract a sexually transmitted infection at some point in their lives. And the U.S. has the highest teen pregnancy rate among the most developed countries in the world.
