The New York City
Department of Health and Mental Hygiene plans to
distribute millions of condoms on Valentine's Day in
different locations throughout the city, including
Times Square and areas in Queens, Bronx, and Brooklyn,
according to a health department press release.

Last year the
department made over 36 million condoms available to New
Yorkers completely free of charge in an attempt
to lower STD and HIV infections.

Yves Béhar,
founder of San Francisco design agency Fuseproject, is
responsible for the sexy new NYC condom design. "Good design
can help bring condoms out of the closet," Béhar
said in the statement. "The brand's friendly
design and the dispenser's approachable shape convey
openness and acceptance. They say condoms are nothing to be
embarrassed about."

Condoms are
available to any establishment in New York and can be
ordered online at www.nyc.gov/condoms. (The
