High resolution version (4,996,820 Bytes)
- This poster provides an apparently simple and straightforward message, but it also addresses a persistent taboo by making
it the parent's responsibility to educate his or her children about condoms and safe sex. Despite the rather uncomplicated
design in each of these posters, the images and messages are still ambiguous. One viewer, for instance, might identify an
implicit moral message about love or responsible behavior in each of the posters, while another could question the sexual
orientation of the subjects themselves.
- NOTE: Slide of original poster image is slightly blurry.
