You want to give your loved one something to remember on Valentine’s Day, but there’s one surprise that no one wants.

Many of us will be planning an evening’s romancing this coming Friday, and hoping that things head to the boudoir if all goes to plan. It’s a night for lovers after all.

However, while getting the meal right and making sure the music playlist is perfect and captures the mood, there’s one crucial ingredient that you should always remember to have on hand not just on Valentine’s Day, but any time you’re headed to the bedroom, and that’s protection.

In Ireland, one STI that’s trending right now, and not in a good way, is gonorrhoea . You can get gonorrhoea from having unprotected sex, including oral sex, and you can have it without showing any symptoms. Numbers have gone up for both men and women, and getting tested is a great way to make sure that you don’t give your partner an unforgettable Valentine’s Day for all the wrong reasons. The process of getting tested is both free and painless, and using condoms is the best way to prevent the spread of STIs. There’s loads more information available at www.yoursexualhealth.ie where you can find out plenty of advice and help on any sexual health issue.

Another way to ensure that you’re safe between the sheets is to always carry protection, and thanks to the #OMGsti campaign being run by Think Contraception, SpunOut.ie, Union of Students Ireland, Dublin AIDS Alliance and Just Carry One, we’ve got some fantastic hampers to give away to make sure that you really enjoy yourselves this Valentine’s Day. Condoms are probably the easiest and safest way to prevent the spread of STIs, and with this hamper you’ll have enough to last you at least until the Saturday morning after Valentine’s, depends how lucky you get.

With a whole range of products from all sorts of condoms to lubes, gels and Durex vibrating rings, you can be guaranteed that it won’t be an early night. All you have to do is answer the simple question below to be in with a chance to win, and if you have any questions or need more information yourself, head to www.yoursexualhealth.ie. Good luck!
