Description

This poster advises that a man who wants to engage in premarital sex may have venereal disease. It describes how gonococcal and syphilitic germs may be transmitted. It is part of a larger poster series called "Youth and Life."

"A man who would lead a girl into sex relations may be infected with gonorrhea (clap) or syphilis (pox) : Gonorrhea and syphilis are germ diseases which are communicable (contagious) : The germs of either disease may be passed from a diseased person to another person through sexual intercourse; occasionally the germs of syphilis are acquired by using public towels or drinking cups, or by kissing"
