Title

"Do Not Believe Him"

Description

This poster warns young men not to have causal sex because it is likely they will contract VD.

"If some 'wise guy' tells you that sexual intercourse is not dangerous, the facts are: A girl who would yield to one man has probably had relations with another. Very likely she is diseased. Most prostitutes (private or public) have either syphilis or gonorrhea or both. Furthermore, there are no antiseptics, prophylactic treatments or other preventives which assure absolute safety."
