Kids! (And how to avoid them…)

Isn’t it a curious paradox that there seems to be so much objection to advertising condoms, while sexually transmitted diseases, teenage pregnancy and abortion remain at unacceptably high levels? It’s quite baffling.

“These networks are celebrating a free sexual lifestyle in their programming, but refusing to talk about it in their advertising. The big problem in this country is we’re hedonistic in our behavior and moralistic in our attitudes. We don’t have an open discussion about our sexuality, and the price of not being open is millions of sexually transmitted infections.” — Michael Weinstein
