Valentine lovers get safe message
WITH National Condom Day falling on Valentine’s Day this year, Perth-based Sexual Health Quarters (SHQ) has reminded lovers of the importance of consent when getting intimate.
To get the message across, this year’s campaign features the acronym CAKE, which stands for Consent, Asking first, Keeping safe, and Every time.
SHQ spokeswoman Rebecca Smith said it was important to know boundaries when it came to sex.
“If your partner isn’t enthusiastically saying yes, stop what you’re doing immediately,” she said.
On February 15, SHQ will offer free, confidential STI tests. Go to shq.org.au.
WA Sexual Health Week runs from February 12 to 18.
Jess Predovnik, Jeff Turner and Kat Duncan spread the message.
