London council criticised for 'encouraging women to have unprotected sex' in 'disgusting' poster A poster campaign by a council was slammed as "disgusting and offensive" for apparently encouraging women to have unprotected sex on nights out.
Kingston Council's "get it, forget it" campaign aims to promote thecontraceptive coil - a copper device inserted into the womb that works that prevents sperm and eggs from surviving, but does notprotect against sexually transmitted infections (STIs).
The poster, displayed across the south west London borough, read: "You spent the night in Clapham but you left your pill in Kingston, it might be time to consider the coil."
Critics have said the posters do not warn people about the risks of contracting an STI and are giving a dangerous message to women. The Daily Telegraph
