How about sending an e-condom as Valentine day gift? At least the New York City considers it to be a cool idea.

The New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene has established the NYC condom page on Facebook by visiting which the New Yorkers can send e-condom which spreads the world about safe sex and gives link to information where to get them.

The “gift” will also instruct in the correct method of use.

The Health Department will host a virtual event on Facebook,where New Yorkers can say they will use a condom and invite their friends to do the same.

The new page is the latest phase in a campaign that started in 2007,when New York City launched the nation’s first branded city condom. Monthly distribution at clinics,clubs,salons and other venues has since doubled,reaching more than three million condoms per month. Together,the Health Department and its numerous community partners have distributed some 70 million NYC Condoms since the launch.

By latest count,more than 4000 people have already send e-condom and their number is fast increasing.

Last year,industrial designer Yves Behar,founder of the San Francisco-based fuseproject firm,gave a fresh look with a new wrapper and a sleek dispenser to NYC Condoms.
