Vintage VD posters

Thursday, September 01, 2011

Not that I'm trying to tell you guys and gals anything, but here are some vintage public health posters about the dangers of venereal disease. They fall into some broad categories: the dangers of VD, the shame of VD, and that loose women are nothing but disease bags. 

I imagine their warning messages were easily overpowered by a few beers and a come-hither look while on liberty, but the people who put these campaigns together tried their best and some of the designs are quite striking

There are more after the jump, and even more at The Doctor is Out blog post 50 Vintage STD Propaganda Posters where I found these samples.
