Wet Lubricant Donating Safe Sex Kits for HIV Testing Campaign

LOS ANGELES — The makers of Wet personal lubricant announced today it will be distributing 100,000 Safe Sex Kits containing a condom and Wet Platinum lubricant at the Chicagoland HIV Testing Collaborative’s (CHTC) "Step Up. Get Tested." campaign.

The month-long campaign begins on June 5 with mobile HIV testing all across the Chicago area and culminates on July 4. The citywide event is supported by 30 partners including the Chicago, Cook County, and Illinois Departments of Public Health, in addition to Chicago area hospitals, community health centers and community-based organizations.

Wet said in 2012, "Step Up. Get Tested." made 40,000 contacts in one month and tested nearly 6,000 people.

“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 others and get the proper treatment and counseling to live long and healthy lives.”
