"Venereal disease. This medical film teaches the effects of gonorrhea and syphilis on the human organism. The use of animated and non-animated drawings and the inclusion of shots displaying infected male sexual organs carry the message vividly. Advice is given on how to prevent contact with the disease. Curative steps are proposed if contact is suspected of having taken place. Clinical treatment is described. Much of the film is in lecture form with the speaker taking on a moralistic tone. Current statistics are also provided. Noteworthy pictorials include: a VD clinical test; flirting prostitutes; and 'cheap' women."
