If they want to scare people into chastity what's wrong with pictures of Michael Jackson?

Not much protection possible for some of those diseases...rubber can stop the ones transmitted in the semen, but the little beasties that live on the skin and such are just goin to go right by

zagloba: uh, no.

Just show them the picture Sgamer was talking about last night in #fark. "This is what can happen if you have unsafe sex."

I saw some crappy show on MTV a while back, maybe "Flipped" or something stupid like that. Anyway these 2 people were both freaked out over aids and getting pregnant. At the end the dumbass guy was like "I'm not ready for a child yet, I'm always using a condom for now on"...
Yep, according to MTV, condoms are the perfect form of birth control and can stop all diseases.

Anything that works for things like this is fine by me.
And no hypocrisy please.

Isn't showing photos of gentialia to teenagers kind of wrong? I mean every time I do that with my neighbors' teens they threaten to go to the cops.
2001-10-31 08:25:48 AM  
This is one article that I'm glad didn't include pictures.

Though it may scare them, isn't that what Halloween is all about? They should pick a different time of year to get the point across.

When they are done, we can send them to my house to learn about the horrors of marriage.

"Teen-agers may have outgrown their fear of ghouls and goblins, but health officials believe their haunted house has something far scarier: gonorrhea and genital warts."

I damn near choked on my doritos when I read that first line.

Abortions tickle
2001-10-31 08:58:38 AM  
Grivas, LOL

If you want to really scare them show them pictures of genital warts on Roseanne Barr!
2001-10-31 09:15:06 AM  
Maybe I should give out condoms to trick or treaters this year...
2001-10-31 09:27:33 AM  
i live in hendersnville TN and i went to this last year with some friends thinking it was all a big joke.

When we left there, we left with mixed feeling about ever have sex agian.

But i do grant that this "Haunted House" did woners on us not ever hving unprotected sex.

Anybody in othe towns with the resources to do something like this should. it really makes kids think!!
2001-10-31 09:41:08 AM  
Put this in the haunted house and they'll stay celibate for life.

I was offering my services as a recreational gynocologist to give free std screening to my neighborhood teenage girls and everybody got all ticked off. See if I do any non court ordered public service again, sheesh!
2001-10-31 10:03:55 AM  
Repeat after me: There is NO such thing as safe sex.
2001-10-31 10:25:42 AM  
Osama Bin Laden puts teh antharx in every 5,000th trojan. Someone sent me an email saying taht.

Condoms may save your life, but like was already mentioned
there are things that are a real pain in the .... that
they don't do anything against. (genital warts, molluscum contagiosum, other things I can't think of right now).

Abstinence is a ridiculous concept, but man, one night stands are a gamble and a half.
2001-10-31 02:23:43 PM  
And the message is:
Do not receive unprotected anal sex from ghouls,ghosts,and zombies,otherwise you'll receive something nasty.Humans are fine though!
2001-10-31 03:14:08 PM  
"scared their pants back on."

So, the idea was not about unsafe sex, but by confusing sex with unsafe sex, you scared them into not having sex at all? Brilliant subterfuge!
2001-10-31 03:16:40 PM  
Thanks for the printable (readable) version!!!!
2001-10-31 03:37:35 PM  
Do condoms protect you from ectoplasmic residue?
2001-10-31 04:59:48 PM  
the haunted house of herpes!
2001-10-31 05:40:08 PM  
Q: What you call a person with herpes, gonorrhea and syphillis?

A: The incurable romantic!!
2001-10-31 05:58:58 PM  
"there's no such thing as safe sex"

Exactly Right!!!

There's also no such things as safe flying, safe driving, safe eating, safe breathing, safe eating, or anything else labelled as "safe."

There are, however things like safer sex, safer flying, safer driving, etc.

Safety, you see, is a relative term (i.e., has degrees of more-or-less) and not an absolute term (i.e., present or absent).

Anybody who tells you otherwise is either lying or trying to sell you something.

Finally, where is it written that life is supposed to be safe?
2001-10-31 07:18:53 PM  
Reading Grivas's comments for example, could be considered unsafe. I laughed so hard there could have been injury. Yes...Unhappy, repressed, guilt-driven marriage. They should have training programs to warn you about what happens if you use abstinence training. 'You may know that herpes is a life-long affliction, but did you know, your spouse can be too?!!!
2001-10-31 09:21:26 PM  
You know what is worse than abstinence? Involuntary abstinence.

3 words to sum up the problem with Americans having no choice in... anything:


Ok, the way I worded that was wierd. But you get the point, don't you? Back me up on this please!
2001-11-01 12:33:06 AM  
I love the bit about "We ain't a-scairt of nothin'" followed by screams when they see a massive wart infested cock.
