Need to find a condom in a hurry? The city's health department's has you covered.

This Valentine's Day, the health department unveiled a free iPhone app that allows users to find five places close by where you can pick up a free condom.

"We are trying to reach everyone having sex," said Monica Sweeney of the department's HIV/AIDS Prevention and Control division. "The younger generation uses their iPhone and we want to make it convenient for them to access condoms."

From the Daily News:

New Yorkers can also download the application on the Android or go to www.nyc.gov/health and type in their zip code to find locations with free NYC Condoms. They're available at many community centers, health clinics, neighborhood stores - even tattoo parlors and barber shops. With the aid of GPS, the app will give walking, driving and subway directions to the site.

The city gave out more than 36 million NYC Condoms in 2010.
