    I found it in the main forum...

    I said to me it's more a turn on because I'm a Scorpio, and I would not mind that hot piece of man ass railing me until my stinger pops it's venom.

    But it's got me thinking...do you think it's proper to depict people with AIDS as deadly creatures? The virus can kill, yes, but - I think it's a bit over the top if you ask me.

    And that guy has such a gorgeous backside...oh lord...

    Is it proper? Well, one bad encounter is basically a death sentence. Eventually it will kill you.

    I think its appropriate although a little harsh. It conveys the message and thats the important thing.

    BTW, did anyone notice that the scorpion's tail is upside down (or downside-up)

    I kind of agree. I mean, I'm not bothered to the point where I'll rally a million men to disaprove it, but it's quite harsh.

    Actually...some of the main forum members don't even get what the ad is trying to say :o

    The ads are pretty hot though, even though they are sexing bugs.

    ...first, that lamp in the first image is HOT!

    Okay, so I like the marketing of the campaign, but not necessarily the message. Ideally, I want to believe that the message originally conceived was that of "don't set yourself up--use protection". But what actually comes across is "yea, it may be hot now, buuut your fucking with death". And that thinks that's emotionally degrading to those people who are living with the disease.

    ...but I have to hand it to them, it will not be ignored. A lot of the campaigns that are out there ARE ignored. This will turn heads. From a marketing perspective, I really like the posters (hell, it's something I would create). I just wish it wasn't such a catch 22.
