    I was told to make a video, geared toward a younger audience, about the precautions to take when deciding to have sex for an assignment. I could have gotten in to the whole the bit about saving yourself until you are in love or wear a condom each and every time you have sex , but I thought that what I said in this video will have the most impact. Let me know what you think.


    Educate yourself before taking the plunge to have sex; by knowing the risks, you can better protect yourself.

    Tis better to safe than sorry.

    It's a tad short and I think such a vid should approach the audience like the audience doesn't know. The last line is almost sarcastic. Especially because some people don't know that sexual activity puts them at risk because of: the kind of sex they have, who with, and what they do. For example, some people do not know that several stds can be transmitted orally.It's a myth that they aren't. If you were a teacher....you wouldn't answer a student's question and then follow with, but you already knew that, right? Never underestimate what people don't know. I'm uptight, but I also would like to see you a bit more serious. Dunno, you seem way to sunny considering unsafe sex can kill and some sort of background if not only a plant or window, picture or something to place you somewhere and not just floating in white space. Change the title, it is too upbeat too. This is a serious subject. I 'm thinking, "Discussions about Sex." Lastly, maybe add yourself into the discussion as a practicer of safe sex or like add something like...."I understand if it's this or that." Make yourself the narrator, but also a human who is vulnerable too, just like the people you are speaking to.

    Thanks Guilty Gear..luckily this was only the draft. I should take take the knowledge of others in account when I submit the final copy. Making assumptions probably isn't the best thing; even if this is the internet age people are still misinformed about safer sex practices.

    Telling people the terrors of being unsafe sexually and expecting them to practice safe sex is like educating highschoolers about the dangers of drugs and expecting them not to experiment and try them. Mostly, people engaging in unsafe sex are aware (unless they are drunk or stoned from not knowing about the dangers of using substances) of the possible misfortune they're writing themselves.. so why drive the same point home over and over? Generally instilling fear about something doesn't prove too effective in combating it.

    B-
    I love the message but it was a bit short. What kept you from having a C is the tag line..."you already knew that"
    Everyone does unless they live under a rock.
    I think the Oh wait and use a condom is like Just say NO ala Nacy Reagan. (whom is a great lady) But heard it once heard it 1,000,000. times.
    Good job!

    My thoughts are very similar to GuiltyGear's. I'm guessing this was mostly directed toward a gay audience because you didn't mention one of the most important IMHO - Accidentally bringing a life into the world for which you are (or should be) resposible.
