Want respect?.....

I recently heard a radio advert which states: Want respect?....Wear a condom.

It is centred around a young man and woman talking about their sexual encounter only to be setback by the fact that neither had a condom.

Basically put the advert argues that in such situations if both had a condom in their back pocket both would feel respect for each other.

I have to admit I laughed when I heard it. The whole notion of respect and dignity is completely flawed. Also let us not forget that a large proportion of sexual encounters such as these are 'one night stands'.

So there you have it. They meet in a night club and think: Great I've 'pulled'!
They go back to a flat to have sex. Both have a condom in their pocket so "they have respect for each other".
They part in the early hours of the morning. They have had a sexually pleasurable evening.

They can't remember each other's name or at the most first names. They know nothing of each other. They don't know each others likes, dislikes, fears, joys etc.

But that doesn't matter. They have 'thought' of the other and brought a condom out that night so 'they have respect'.

I laughed and thought: Well ain't that deep!

God bless

I just read this... as a slightly diffrent take, yet once again one wonders how it can ever work without any true understanding beyond physical consequences. I note its temporary nature though!
