Racy posters in the name of STI prevention

The Ohio University Division of Student Affairs is displaying posters in the mostly co-ed dorms that appear to promote immoral sexual behavior.

The campaign reportedly aims to prevent the spread of sexually transmitted infections. But one resident assistant, who wants to remain anonymous, does not think the posters -- which state things like "How many people…have you REALLY slept with?" and "Sober sex … try it. You'll like it" -- accomplish that.

"The pictures were basically of … a male and a female lying in a bed. She's … promiscuously posed," he describes. "In another one was a group of a mix of male and females with bed sheets over them, with seemingly no clothes on, and again, very suggestive and promiscuous."

The resident assistant points out that abstinence is not even mentioned as an alternative.

"In fact, they directly told me that they completely avoid abstinence because their claim is that they choose not to impose morality on anybody," he details. "But to me, that's rather paradoxical."

Those posing for these suggestive posters are all student volunteers.
