      As a media/pr consultant I am always looking for creative, fun ways to help clients promote themselves and their businesses.  That trend is being done by more and more Companies who are trying to get their names/products/businesses out there.  

      This link is one of them. What do you think? Great promotion or what?

        • it looks pretty good. some cannot tell face to face. sad but true, if this is the only way then...

          is this for a gay site? i am asking as i only see men in the cards.

          if it is for the general population, they may want to have some women shapes pictured also.

          just a thought

        • That was tacky.  Not to mention if you‘re gonna get that close to “share” you better pick up the phone and face the music.

        • Beverly,

          I am sitting here thinking what I would do if I got that in an email...

          I am speechless. Surely someone would call as to do this. I probally would be in jail for assault. haha

        • i think beacuse i know someone who was never told, if this had been around, she may have gotten help sooner.  

          She died soon after she found out. If she had known earlier, she may have gotten on meds sooner.

          Many won’t tell due to shame or stupidity. If this is how they will, then go for it.

          IMHO

        • I don’t know what to say! If they engaged in sex for fun (one night stand) they would find this method acceptable. However, I believe that if there is some degree of care they would phone or say it face to face. This age we‘re living in dictates how people treat each other.

        • Did you see the one with the guy half dressed and the message said:  

          It’s not what you brought to the party—it’s what you might be taking home...WOW!

          I wouldn’t want anyone to send me something like that. Whatever happened to a telephone call or face-to-face contact?

          It appears the Business is called ISIS (Internet Sexuality
          Information services) and they are non-profit. It could probably be a GREAT PROMOTION—a campaign of awareness but it’s just so light-hearted in dealing with a serious situation.

          Is this how young people are treating STD’s these days?

          Yes. I work with the public and on any given day young and old alike come in for free condoms and STD testing. They are regular with their visits, I don’t see any shame.

        • Bev,

          I was checking back to see if you have posted anything further about what this company is going to do. Are they going to use this ad???
