CDC Warning To “Not Wash Or Reuse Condoms” Got Some Laughs On Twitter

File this under “Thanks, Captain Obvious?”

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) recently tweeted a public service announcement reminding folks to not “wash or re-use condoms.”

The informative tweet read, “We say it because people do it: Don’t wash or reuse #condoms! Use a fresh one for each #sex act.”

 

 

 

Now, I trust and believe that if the CDC, one of the foremost leaders on treating/preventing HIV, is tweeting it, it’s for a reason.

But – SRSLY? Folks have to be told condoms are a one and done kinda thing?

The Twitterverse thought this seemed a bit obvious, but then decided to have some fun.

So, to be clear:

Yes – Always use a condom to protect yourself from infections ranging from HIV to many other STDs.

Yes – You should check the condom before using to make sure it's not damaged.

No – Don't keep condoms in your wallet as friction and heat are not a condom's friends.

And no – don't reuse condoms. Please dispose of them sensibly.

Happy Friday!
