Say hello to your new condom-mobile, Los Angeles County. The 40-foot vehicle dispensing free condoms and safer sex advice to the masses made its debut at the Long Beach Pride Festival this weekend. These weren't just any old condoms: the condoms they gave out were the winners of a local design contest, encouraging Angelenos to "suit up" or "keep calm and carry one."

You don't have to wait for the condom-mobile to roll around to your hood to get free condoms. The county's Department of Public Health has a new website called LA Sex Symbol with advice for protecting yourself against STDs or unwanted pregnancies. You can also find a list of places to walk in and get a condom or a phone number to call if you'd prefer to have them mailed to you.
