UH Manoa to hold condom fair on Valentine's Day

HONOLULU (AP) - The University of Hawaii's Manoa campus is promoting safe sex with a Valentine's Day event called "Condom Fair 2014."

Friday's event sponsored by the university's Health Promotion Office will feature games and prizes including condom roses, condom lollipops and educational materials.

The university says the purpose of the fair is to "promote a healthier lifestyle through the appropriate and consistent use of condoms." The fair isn't meant to promote sexual activity but to educate that condoms are the safest way to protect against sexually transmitted infections and unintended pregnancies.

The university says the fair is designed to educate students about healthy relationships in a "fun and relaxed atmosphere."

About 2,000 students are expected to attend.
