I’ve been shouting about this for six years, and now we’ve got a Safer Sex for Seniors website, a video, a poster, and an advertising campaign to encourage/ inform/ bludgeon our age group to use condoms!
The campaign launched today with this video and a website filled with FAQ about safer sex for seniors written by thirteen sex educators— most members of the Sexuality and Aging Consortium. (I wrote two of these: Tips for the Condom Conversation and 10 Tips for Hot Solo Sex.)
I think the video is entertaining enough to get people to watch and share it (though I wish some non-heterosexual couples had been depicted). Will the message get through? Certainly if people click to http://safersex4seniors.org/ it will.
Help me pass the word, will you?
