IN THE MOMENT is an online web series that follows the lives of a group of gay guys living in the same apartment complex in West Hollywood, California. Like most of us, they're faced with a huge range of decisions about sex, and the decisions they make impact their lives and the lives of people around them. IN THE MOMENT is also about starting an open, honest conversation among gay guys in the Los Angeles area about these types of decisions.
IN THE MOMENT starts with an authentic, sexy and sometimes humorous web soap opera that explores the full range of factors that come into play in sexual decision making among young gay men. Issues like self-esteem, dating, relationships, age, body image, addiction and others are addressed as key factors in the lives of the characters. The episodes are broken into 3-5 minute “webisodes”, which are a starting-place for discussion.

Here are some great condom advertisements from around the world. The first one is from the French AIDES organization. Introducing Willy, the tourist with a lot of frequent-flier miles. Indefatigable and cute, he is a good reminder for all of us to stay safe by using a condom. The other one is from China where they have very high infection rates of HIV within the gay male population. Make sure to stay safe and use condoms!
Sugar Baby Love
AIDES is the Leading French HIV/AIDS and viral hepatitis Non Governmental Organization. They created this video that promotes safe sex so you can live long enough to find the right one. Watch the video below!
Context Although the gay community has been especially aware that prevention is needed since the start of the Aids epidemic, there has been a revival of unprotected practices in the last years. Today, homosexuals represent almost one quarter of newly diagnosed cases and more than 4 discover they are HIV positive each day.
Objective Day after day, in the field, AIDES militants note it is difficult for gays to protect themselves optimally. Aware of the need to send more messages addressing them, AIDES has decided to produce a new consciousness raising ad with the TBWA\PARIS agency. The film follows the line of "Baby, baby", produced in 2005 by Wilfrid Brimo (Wanda) to promote the image of condom use for a fully satisfying sexuality. This success naturally inspired this commercial.
Project Also produced as a video to the rhythm of the "Sugar Baby Love" track by the "The Rubbet’s" band, the film humoristically relates the love life of a young boy, and then young man, who after discovering his homosexuality lives his sexual identity, although victim of homophobic attacks. We follow him as years go by, in search of true love. Meanwhile, he protects himself during encounters by using a condom. The final message is still: "Live long enough to find the one!" This campaign plays on codes which are specific to the homosexual community, up to the point of caricature, in order to promote the use of condom. But it also aims at denouncing the discrimination gay people living in accordance to their sexual orientation have to go through. Recent attacks are a terrible reminder of this. This video has been awarded a Silver Lion prize at the International Advertising Festival of Cannes – June 2006.
