OK, but next time you have to wear one, famous last words, 1980s

Created in the late 1980s by People of Color Against AIDS, a Seattle-based AIDS service, “OK, But Next Time…” tried to convince women of color to negotiate condom use with their male partners. The organization recognized that it needed to engage both men and women of all sexual orientations to effectively change people’s sexual behaviors in ways that would lessen the likelihood of contracting HIV.
