1986 – If You’ve Had Two Sex Partners
created by the Texas Department of Health

This poster reads, “If you’ve had two sex partners and your partners had each had two sex partners and their partners had each had two sex partners… then it’s as if you’ve had sex with 512 people.” The ad does not mention condoms, but then again, it wasn’t until 1988 that the U.S. even aired a televised PSA explicitly mentioning condom use for AIDS prevention.
