Rights Information

Camera looks down - interrupted by the blades of a slowly revolving ceiling fan - on a young woman with a glass of wine snuggling against young man on coach. A flash of blue static on a television screen. The couch scene is intercut with blue-hued close-ups of the couple becoming more amorous and in which she whispers, “Have you got a condom”. The last two words are echoed. Female voiceover: “Sure, it can be embarrassing asking someone to wear a condom, but no-one ever DIED of embarrassment.” Onscreen text: “Department of Health. AIDS. It’s just not worth the risk.”
