This man killed seventeen women and loved every minute of it, 1980s

AID Atlanta, the largest AIDS service organization in the southeast, used this portrait to depict AIDS as a handsome man who was a silent menace to women. Although the poster provided a phone number for women to call, it neglected to spell out any of the “precautions” they might take to negotiate sexual safety with their “loving” male partners.
