Editor's Pick

Sexually transmitted infections or pregnancy can be caused by unsafe sex -- but so can blue balls. So tell us Rusty and Vern, the two blue balls seen in this pretty awesome PSA, in "Blue Balls Blues," a folksy, melodious approach to getting men to wrap it up. But while you may enjoy the tunes, the creatives behind the campaign tell us: "This is no labor of love for ol' Rusty and Vern. This, like so many blues greats before them, is the only way they could find release."

The campaign includes this film, plus some posters and an MP3 download.
