Month Of May Is A Condom Day In Japan

On May 6th, it a day for the unofficial “days” in Japan to celebrate Condom Day. Why is on May is a Condom Day? In Japanese, May is “go-gatsu” (五月 or literally, the fifth month) and the sixth is “muika” (六日). So, 5-6 is “go-mu” and it sounds like “gomu” (ゴム), a word that can mean “rubber” as in “condom.” A lot of fans celebrate this day by selfie with a rubber band and condom to raise safe sex awareness.
