On February 14th and 15th from 7:00pm to 2:00am, people will have the opportunity to receive a complimentary "safe ride" in designated zones within New York City. Passengers who hail the Trojan™ Safe Rides will be asked to challenge themselves during this interactive trivia experience, aimed at providing passengers with accurate information about sexual health and condom usage. All passengers have the chance to walk away with Trojan™ Brand Condoms prizes.  

"While using a condom is easy, it is important that people have the facts to ensure they are using them consistently and correctly, and that we continue to dispel the myths associated with condom usage," said Bruce Weiss, Vice President of Marketing for Trojan™ Brand Condoms. "The Trojan™ Safe Rides serve as a 'vehicle' to get the facts out in a fun and engaging way."

The education won't stop when the passengers reach their destination. The initiative coincides with the launch of the Condomology web site (www.FactsAboutCondoms.com), a consumer-friendly sexual health resource developed in partnership with the American Sexual Health Association (ASHA). Consumers can log on to view a new short film documenting the historical journey of one of the most important sexual health innovations ever created, titled "The History of Condoms."

Get In and Gauge Your Sexual Health IQ

On February 14th and 15th, brand ambassadors will be on foot in popular nightlife neighborhoods in New York City distributing information on how people can flag down a Trojan™ Safe Ride. The trivia experience begins as passengers enter the taxi and ends when the driver arrives at the passenger's destination, within the designated zones. Passengers who answer five or more questions correctly receive a Trojan™ Brand Condoms prize pack. Those who answer all of the questions correctly win a year's supply of Trojan™ Brand Condoms.

Participants can choose to participate and receive a complimentary ride within the designated areas below.
