NonPrude Europe vs US

I hope this link works. I just got "Spectrum 16" for Christmas and one of the first pictures in it is this award winning AIDs prevention poster by James Jean . While I like it, what struck me most is that fact that in Europe, it wins awards while here in the US, you can't even really show a condom, let alone THIS when trying to encourage AIDs awareness or sex ed... I love Europe (at least where art is involved, and food, and culture...)

    And yes, America is generally a lot more prudish than Europe. In some ways, the U.S. falls short on being the ideal "land of the free."
