A statement issued Wednesday evening by the governor’s office said: “The Governor understands the importance of the Utah Department of Health conducting a campaign to educate Utahns about HIV prevention. He does not, however, approve the use of sexual innuendo as part of a taxpayer-funded campaign, and our office has asked the department to rework the campaign’s branding.”

The state had begun distributing the 100,000 condoms earlier this month as part of “The H is for Human” campaign for HIV awareness, which includes a new website, HIVandME.com. HIV, a precursor of AIDS, is less prevalent than it once was in Utah but is not gone; there is one case of HIV diagnosed in the state every three days, or about 120 new infections diagnosed each year, officials said. – The Salt Lake Tribune

Wyoming and Alaska have had similar programs to Utah’s, but have had few if any bunched panties over it. Both states have a “Drill Safely” rubber.
