Vintage STD Posters



Public health posters from the World War I and World War II eras warned soldiers of the dire consequences of venereal diseases (now called STDs). Since military men were the target, blame was squarely put on the woman they may encounter. This gallery at Environmental Graffiti also features a French poster that even a non-French reader can decipher. Link

"...venereal diseases (now called STDs)." Really? Wow, thanks for clearing that up.

"Since military men were the target, blame was squarely put on the woman they may encounter." So... A railroad crossing warning sign blames a train for a wreak? No, it merely warns of danger, just like THIS sign simply warns of danger and reminds people to be careful.
