Nobody gets turned on by lists of do’s and don’ts. We need different strategies to help change sexual behaviour in the age of AIDS. This tapes attempts to eroticize safer sex practices and latex use. Rather than using explicit porn, the signifiers become gestural and facial to create an aura of eroticism. The address is pluri-sexual, the audience, everyone.
