June is HIV/AIDS Awareness Month and June 27th is National HIV Awareness Day

This year, Wet Personal Lubricants has partnered with Chicagoland HIV Testing Collaborative’s (CHTC) "Step Up. Get Tested." campaign by donating 100,000 Safe Sex Kits containing a condom and a sample of Wet Platinum Premium Silicone Lubricant.  The Wet Safe Sex Kits will be handed out at mobile HIV testing units across the Chicago area June 5th through July 4th, 2014. The goal is to not only test at least 5,000 people every June, but to reduce the stigma and fear that surrounds HIV testing.

Last year, CHTC’s "Step Up. Get Tested." campaign made 40,000 contacts in one month and tested well over 5,000 people, giving away 100,000 Wet Safe Sex kits in the process. This campaign is one of the many HIV Testing and awareness campaigns happening in cities across America to mark this awareness day with activities that encourage people to get tested regularly for HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. We believe everyone should say yes to the test!

“We’re proud to be the exclusive lubricant sponsor for Step Up. Get Tested.," said Michael Trigg, founder and CEO of Trigg Labs. “We hope our safe sex kits will increase public awareness to reduce the stigma associated with getting tested for HIV. It’s so important to get educated, tested, and to know your current HIV status. Information is power and with that information you can protect yourself and others and, if necessary, get the proper treatment and counseling to live long and healthy lives.”


The only way to know if you have HIV is to get tested. Testing is relatively simple. You can get an HIV test from your doctor or healthcare provider, community health center, Veteran’s health center, a local family planning clinic, and other many locations.
HIV testing is available FREE and ANONYMOUS in many places.  For HIV testing resources visit:

Using a condom is a very effective way to prevent contracting a sexually transmitted disease (STD) or infection (STI).  The catch?  Only Consistently + Correctly = Effectively

Condom Tips:

Check the expiration date!
Yes, they do have one.  Look for it before you purchase the condoms and before you use each one to be sure that it hasn’t expired.

Buy condoms that fit properly.
Like us, condoms come in a variety of sizes. Condoms that are too tight are uncomfortable and don’t leave enough room for semen to burst in on the scene. Condoms that are too loose can hold air bubbles that can increase breakage. They can also slip off easily. For more details on condom sizes, go to

Store condoms in a cool, dry place.
Latex can dry out and become brittle when it’s stored in summer heat or winter cold or when   temperatures vary throughout the day. Your glove box or your wallet may seem like the most convenient option but they are not the best places for storing them.

Open the wrapper with your hands.
Sometimes they are tricky to open.  It’s tempting to use your teeth or scissors.  Teeth and any other sharp instrument should be avoided, as the risk of puncturing or tearing the condom is higher if you do.

Put the condom on before there is any genital to genital contact.
Any exchange of bodily fluids harbors the risk of transmission.  This exchange can happen well before penetration so be sure you wrap it up before the action gets hot and heavy.

Lubrication is important!
Placing a drop of personal lubricant on the inside of the condom before you roll it on will enhance your enjoyment. Using lubricant generously on the outside of the condom will reduce friction and thereby reduce the risk of the condom breaking. Use an FDA approved Personal Lubricant such as Wet® Light®, Wet® Platinum®, and Wet® Uranus™ Silicone-Based. These have all been certified as 510(k) medical devices for use with condoms.

Be sure it is not inside out before you start.
Both the tip of the condom and the rolled edge should be pointing the same direction.

See illustration here:

Do not unroll the condom before you put it on.
You must unroll the condom down the shaft all the way to the bottom. This can apply to toys too.  Do not share toys with your partner unless you put a fresh condom on the toy in between uses.

Pinch the reservoir tip while you are rolling on the condom.  Once the condom has been rolled on completely, be sure to squeeze out any air bubbles.

Hold on to the base of the condom when you pull out. 
The muscles of the vagina and/or the rectum are strong. They might peel that condom right off.

Take it out with you to prevent spilling the contents on or in your partner.

Summer Heat Can Turn Fun Days Into "pHunky" Days For Many a Vagina

Summer heat can turn fun days into "pHunky" days for many a vagina.

Aahhh..summertime!  Long, hot days filled with warm weather fun…what could be better?  But for some the heat and humidity are only contributing factors that pHunky smell down there. What causes this? An imbalance in pH factor. And what does an imbalanced pH have to do with it? And what exactly is pH?

For starters, the letters ‘pH’ are used to abbreviate, ‘potential hydrogen’ which, when elevated increases the acidity-level in the vagina.  And no one likes to be unbalanced, the vagina included. When acidity-level or pH is too high, the conditions for ‘bad bacteria’ to breed become perfect and when this happens, the ‘good bacteria’ become outnumbered by the ‘bad bacteria’, causing that smelly odor, vaginal discharge, and itch. Fun times!

Unfortunately for females, there are a number of everyday triggers that may cause a vagina’s ecosystem to become unbalanced and the summer heat is merely one of the many irritations that can ruin a fun summer by the pool.  Let’s examine a few more summer fun spoilers!

Menstruation: Yes, no one likes it when ‘Aunt Flo’ arrives, but at least unlike your mom’s sister, you usually know how long it will stick around.  Even still, menstruating can increase the pH balance which many women know can be the trigger for an impending bacterial infection, and when you’ve got hot summer plans this can be a real downer.

Changes in estrogen levels due to Peri or Post-menopause:  For those that are peri-menopausal, the fluctuations of estrogen further add to the pH woes, as decreased estrogen levels will cause an increase in pH. And well, the post-menopausal woman can expect even higher elevated pH levels.   And let’s face it…who wants to be intimate when you’re feeling ‘pHunky?’

Low estrogren can also be caused by pregnancy, breast-feeding or even medications, yes, that includes birth control pills.  And as we have already learned, low estrogen can often elevate the pH in the vaginal environment, again either bringing on the discomfort of discharge, odors, or even worse vaginal dryness, which we discussed before. Vaginal dryness can lead to painful intercourse.

Sexual intercourse: Oh, this is so unfair. After all, the entire purpose of having a sexy vagina is to have sex in the first place and that can upset the pH balance? Yes it can. That day after sex odor is caused by the semen which has left the vagina with a higher pH than before, allowing for the bacteria to multiply with as much abandon as you hopefully had a day earlier. Ugh.

So what to do? Do we just have to live with it? Some people will try to mask the problem by using sprays, wipes, or pads. But sorry to say, many of these have fragrances that can be harmful to delicate tissues.  Thankfully, there is an over-the-counter solution from your drugstore.  RepHresh Gel keeps the pH balanced—decreasing the chance of Bacterial Vaginosis, and eliminating that “fishy” odor by treating the root cause.  And if estrogen levels have dropped leaving you with vaginal dryness, use a personal lubricant such as Wet Platinum Premium Silicone Lubricant. Because it is pure silicone and does not contain any water, it has no pH and it doesn’t dry out and can be used for even the longest marathon sex sessions.

Remember to see your doctor if you have any recurring odor.

Other Summertime tips:

She wore an itsy-bitsy, teeny-weeny, polka-dot bikini – along with an itchy, burning bikini-line rash!  Not only is razor rash unattractive, it’s also painful. Ease the heat buildup by wearing cotton panties and loose clothes. When shaving, use a new razor blade to get a close, clean shave and you can use Wet Platinum silicone-based lube instead of shaving cream for a super silky shave sans the bumps and burn.

Love that new pair of strappy sandals but hate the nasty blister it raises on your pinky toe?  Fill a plastic bottle with water and tuck it into the too-tight area with the cap pointing up, then pop your bottle filled shoe in the freezer overnight.  The water in the bottle will expand as it freezes, gently stretching the straps to provide a little extra wiggle room for those tender piggies.  Once you’ve stretched them.  Put a few drops of Wet Platinum on your toes to help keep friction at a minimum.

Just be sure you keep it inside your show as it may stain some fabrics.

10 Things Men Like About Breasts By David M. Matthews

As you are well-aware, men’s love affair with the female breast goes back centuries, perhaps to the beginning of time (before chomping on the apple, Adam may not have known the significance of Eve’s frontal accoutrements, but he knew what he liked).  Guys go out of their way to get a glimpse of them at every opportunity, and spend obscene amounts of hard-earned cash just to watch nubile hotties bare their bounteous assets in seedy, sweaty, prurient palaces, ironically referred to as, “gentlemen’s clubs.”  Such is our complete infatuation with your blessed bosom.

But why this udder devotion?  And what specifically draws us to your mellifluous mammaries?   Read on as I try to offer a little insight into mans’ magnificent obsession.

1) We like how your breasts look:  Contrary to what you may think, regardless
of size, we find your boobs fascinating.  Whether they’re large and luxurious or small and sporty, we’re hot for your hooters.  And while individual men may have a preference for a particular size or shape, overwhelmingly we’re enticed by your charms, be they pendulous or pert, pouty or protuberant.

2) We like how they feel:  It’s hard to say specifically why they feel so nice, but nonetheless they do.  Touch them and feel for yourself.  There’s nothing else quite like them.  That’s why, given the opportunity, we can’t resist putting our hands (or other body parts) on them (with your consent, of course) whenever they happen to be in the neighborhood. 

3) We like to watch them dance:  Almost as much as seeing and touching them, we like to watch them in motion.  The way they shake when you move, bobble when you walk, or bounce when you jump, commands our attention almost as much as a half-court shot at the buzzer (and you know how we love our basketball).  And women jumping on trampolines…well, that just reaffirms our belief in Heaven.

4) We like how they work as a team:  Some things are just meant to come in pairs:  Socks, shoes, fang marks from your favorite Twilight hunk.  And your “girls” are a member of this wonderfully co-dependent group.  While they are individually lovely, together they create one of nature’s most awesome vistas – cleavage. 

5) We like them as a pillow:  Life is tough.  And at the end of a day in the trenches of adulthood, nothing is as comforting a resting place for our weary heads, as the cushion of your bosom.  Cradled in the calming warmth of your natural upholstery, we can relax and regroup, ready to face the world anew, our spirit magically restored.

6) We like them as a handle:  Face it; there are some sexual positions where your breasts are perfectly placed to help us hold on as things heat up.  And though we often don’t absolutely need to hold onto them to prevent us from falling off the bed, or worse, losing our rhythm, why leave them out of our love-play?  After all, they’re a treasured part of your anatomy, and we don’t want them to feel lonely, neglected or ignored.  Men are extraordinarily considerate that way.

7) We like them as an information system:  Now, to your nipples.  How we love them.  Not only for their inherent beauty - perfectly accessorizing your fashionable frontage – but also for their incredible communication skills.  When you’re clothed and we see them, they tell us you’re bra-less (or at least wearing a very sheer, sexy bra).  When they stand erect they tell us either you’re experiencing a chill or are very happy to see us (or someone else), or both.  And one thing’s for sure: when they talk, we listen!

8) We like their mystery:  From the time we first become aware of them, breasts fascinate us – not only what we see – but what we don’t.  Untold numbers of hours are spent imagining what those beautifully mysterious mounds under your clothing actually look like.  And when we finally do get to behold them “in the flesh,” we are rarely disappointed.  And afterward, though the particular mystery of what your breasts look like has been solved, there are billions more as-yet-unseen breasts for us to ponder and speculate about.  Ahh, sweet mystery of life.

9) We like their curviness:  Ideally anyway, men are angular, hard and defined.  Our shape (when we’re “in shape,” that is) is not given to graceful curves or comforting cushiness.  Women, on the other hand, are naturally more curvaceous – something we greatly appreciate.  And the soft swell of your breasts perfectly enhance the rest of the feminine figure.  In other words, you’re curvy where we’re flat…and viva la difference!

10) We like how they just plain make us feel better:  I’m sure you’re aware of studies that have shown definitively that people who have pets live longer, healthier lives.  What you may not know is that recent findings indicate that looking at breasts for as little as fifteen minutes a day actually has a similar, healthy and longevity-enhancing impact on men.  Now, I’m certainly not comparing women’s breasts to our furry family friends – although we do like when either are nuzzled up against us or available for petting.  But it’s exciting to learn that it is now scientifically proven that just beholding  your up-top attributes on a daily basis can add years to our lives…in addition to adding a spring to our step.  You just gotta love science!

Well, if you had any doubts about how strongly guys feel about your breasts, I hope I’ve eliminated them.  We love ‘em, cherish ‘em, can’t get enough of ‘em.  And luckily for us, they’re attached to one of the few things in this world that we love, value and desire even more than them – you.
