This is a message to film & tv makers everywhere: unless unprotected (straight) sex is a plot point of your story, please, please, show us viewers a condom! Whenever I see a couple on TV having unprotected sex, or can’t tell if they are using protection, it just ruins the rest of the show. I spend the whole time wondering if she will get pregnant or he will get a disease. I’m talking to you, Weeds! (Thank you Puccinni fo Beginners, for the Trojans on the counter, even if it was after the fact) And porn! I don’t even want to think about the diseases passed around by porn stars!
Sure, condoms aren’t sexy, but neither is chlamydia. As disgusting as the irresponsible behavior of tv and film characters is, the behavior of guys in person can be just as bad. I’ve rarely encountered a guy who spontaneously reaches for one, and often guys–even guys who should know better–even sensitive new age guys– try to talk me into unprotected sex. Ok, so it feels better, I know. But how do you “know that I am clean” if you barely know me? and vice versa?
With all of the safe sex propaganda out there, why do I have to be a safe sex educator in the bedroom? Help Me out here TV and Film, and put a helmet on that soldier–or show the consequences!
