Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that there more are 110 million STI’s among men and women in the U.S, with 20 million new STI cases every year.[1]


Half of the 20 million new STD’s reported each year were among young people, between the ages of 15 to 24.[1]

One in two sexually active persons will contract an STD/STI by age 25.[2]

When it comes to HIV, using a condom makes sex 10,000 times safer than not using a condom.[3]

Laboratory studies have shown that latex condoms provide an effective barrier against even the smallest STD pathogens.[4]

People who use condoms feel their experiences are just as pleasurable as people who don’t.  Protect yourself & still have just as much fun.[5]

Did you know you can also contract STI’s from not only vaginal sex, but also oral sex, anal sex and even sharing sex toys?  There are multiple ways to protect yourself from STI/STD’s with a condom.[6]

If these facts alone don’t make you want to immediately buy some Cumbrella’s, I don’t know what will! 😉
