Yes, a neat condom ad.
When I was that age, the only places I could buy condoms were from coin-operated dispensers in the men's rooms of seedy service stations. Signs posted near the machines warned that the condoms were for disease-prevention only.
Around 1980, a store named Condomania opened in SF. In the Castro of course. What a treat it was to see condoms on display.

I was on The Thinking Atheist last night. We really got into things like how to talk to your children about sex and the bogus notion of sex or porn addiction. If you or someone you know, believes in sex addiction, listen here. It is only a figment of the Christian imagination and their sex crazed guilt.http://www.blogtalkradio.com/thethinkingatheist/2014/01/29/religion...
A great podcast!
An interesting note about the variations possible among cultures, about 31 minutes into the show, in response to a question about how often men and women think about sex:
"In the Mangaian culture in the South Pacific, women are voracious. And the rule of that particular culture, that's been there for hundreds of years, long before Western contact came to that particular island, the rule was, a girl could have as many boyfriends as she wants, there's hardly any taboos around sexuality there, even for young kids to have sex anytime they want, but ... the rule was, the boy was expected to give the girl at least three orgasms for every one orgasm that he has."
Sounds sex-positive to me!
Dr. Ray next mentioned the Na culture in China [on the border with Tibet], whose traditional "visiting marriage" system had no husbands as we know them. Siblings stay together through adulthood, men visit their lovers at night, and the uncles are the primary male figures in the children's lives.
(But see also: The Na of Southwest China: Debunking the Myths. While "visiting marriage", in which fathers do have specific roles from time to time, is the preferred type of partnership, others exist as well. Significantly, "notions of exclusivity are not entrenched, and the Na language has no word for 'jealousy'.")
