This pamphlet provides information on prevention of HIV. It uses a restaurant menu theme to describe various forms of sexual activity, but instead of a price for items, it rates the level of HIV risk of each activity. The dessert menu lists several totally risk-free activities, while the entrees discuss activities that pose a risk and how to reduce that risk, including using condoms consistently and correctly. It illustrates proper use of male and female condoms, describes the transmission and symptoms of HIV, and suggests that individuals get tested if they think they are at risk.
