DESCRIPTION:

National Condom Week is part of National Condom Month and occurs the week of Valentine's Day, the day of love. The purpose is to focus attention on safe sexual habits and preventing sexual diseases through the use of a condom. The AIDS Healthcare Foundation traditionally hands out free condoms throughout the world. See your city for details.

The condom has existed in one form or another since 1564. The first condoms were developed by Gabriel Falloppio and consisted of a linen bag drenched in salt or herbs to protect men against syphilis. Eventually, it earned the nickname "English Raincoat."

By the 18th century, sheep and goat intestines, silk, and linen were used, and men had to tie these to their bodies to prevent them from coming off. The name condom is from the Latin "condus," which translates to "receptacle."

Today there are both male and female versions of the condom, typically made of latex (rubber), sheep intestines, or plastic.
