Aidshilfe Düsseldorf: The Safer Sexhotline

Sex without protection is still standard practise in the business of prostitution during short meetings for sexual relations and one-night stands. We have taken out sex ads in regional daily newspapers where sex meetings are planned to communicate our message: Only condoms protect you from being infected with Aids. The phone number leads to a recorded message of the Aidshilfe Düsseldorf that first sounds like a real Sexhotline but then cautions against the danger of unprotected sex. The great number of callers revealed how important it is to remember Aids, especially when people are not thinking rationally.

I like the part of reminding people of aids even when they think about it, since 2 million is not a small number. Taking something from the grassroots level is great, much more effective. Great concept.

strongly delivers the message, but somehow I don't believe that THESE callers will give it a serious thought...

Well, if they don't, then it didn't deliver the message; at all. So make up your mind. "I don't believe that THESE...." - hope you're not planning of getting into the business :D
