…just, wow. I’m not sure how I didn’t hear about this in February, but it’s just one more glaring example of how Marie Stopes doesn’t really care about saving lives (such as those lost from STIs) or about the social status of women. There’s just something about blow-up dolls that doesn’t jive with being pro-woman.
The charity teamed up with comedy music band The Midnight Beast – brandishing blow-up dolls and condoms – for an online safe sex campaign.
While the song’s lyrics encourage using condoms, it also includes the line: ‘One up the bum and it’s no harm done, one up the bum and you won’t be a mum.’
SCROLL DOWN TO WATCH THE VIDEO
Some viewers have criticised the charity, saying it ignores the risk of spreading Aids and other diseases, while one mother complained: ‘It is a silly way for the charity to spend valuable resources.’
The video has now been watched more than 90,000 times on YouTube.
It features band member Stefan Abingdon simulating sex with a blow-up doll and another, Dru Wakely, finding a condom in his mouth while eating a banana.
It ends with a message warning viewers not to rely on Midnight Beast for safe sex advice, directing them to a Marie Stopes website instead.
But one young viewer commented: ‘I take it this video is for a world without Aids?’
