If you didn't get condoms as a Valentine's gift, here's your chance. Tomorrow a 53-foot, 18-wheel "Condom Nation" semi-truck will roll into Oakland's Frank Ogawa Plaza, coincidentally the site of other sexy happenings like the gay porn caper Occupy My Throat. Staff from the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, La Clinica Raza, and Get Screened Oakland will hand out condoms from 3-7 p.m., in addition to hosting a DJ dance party (courtesy of 106 KMEL and Wild 94.9 FM) and free HIV screenings. The organizations argue that, with a reported 48,000 new HIV infections and 19 million new STD infections in the US each year, you can't underestimate the importance of a free rubber.
