Creepy anti-Syphilis posters

Anti-Prostitution Poster, WWII
Venereal diseases always used as a pragmatic proof in order to enstablish an anti-hedonic sexual morality to Youth and controlled monogamic relations. But the majority of official warnings had to do with protection of males, especially soldiers, so nearly all related posters and propaganda refered to "creepy" and insidious female prostitutes who are going to spread dissease and death to those men who let themselves surrender to their lust. No care about women erotic needs, the "good" girls were virgins till their marriage under the strict protection of familly and fathers and brothers, and the others "dirty" girls were left to their fates. Even Salvador Dali was ordered to draw a poster with such a sexist theme, but I dare say that it is very artistic. I present some of the most creepy sexist posters and one that is so rediculously funny and representative of the "insidious and evil woman"
