Marky Ramone promotes safe sex for US National Condom Week

Marky Ramone is helping to promote safe sex in the USA by launching a condom kit for sex education company Ready Two Go.

The Sun reports that the drummer is helping to spread the message about the dangers of sexually transmitted diseases.

“The world has lost too many people to STDs of all types, and that is why I joined up with Ready Two Go for my signature series of safer sex tins,” Ramone explained.

The tins have a Marky Ramone emblem on them and include condoms and information on sexually transmitted diseases.
