I’m all for keeping kids from doing things that they shouldn’t. But this ad seems a tad extreme.
Reading the ad, it seems to imply that “school girls” would somehow think it was a great idea to have sex with “older men.” By directing the question at the girls — “Do you know what an older man can give you?” — they seem to be missing the “sleazy coercion” aspect of these trysts. They do acknowledge things other than AIDS as a possible consequence of sex with older men. Broken promises. Broken hearts. Pregnancy. Warts and syphilis. And finally, AIDS and death. So be careful girls!
