No glove, no love (Words, Sayings, and Slogans)

"All right, Gia, we can be partners, but no glove, no love."

The slogan to encourage the use of condoms existed long before AIDS was identified — for example, John Irving uses it in The World According to Garp — but it wasn't heard much in polite company or high school classrooms. It was in the 1980s when decorum gave way to public health and the slogan began to be used for campaigns. National Condom Weeks are now annual events, coinciding with Valentine's Day. Ain't love grand?
