The "Sex. Worth talking about" campaign aims to encourage people to investigate all their contraceptive options and to consider which method might best fit their needs and lifestyle. These two posters form part of this campaign and are designed to highlight two particular contraceptive choices which might be less familiar to the public than the contraceptive pill.

The campaign has been running since 30 November 2009 and it is therefore too early to know if these posters have had an effect on usage of the oral contraceptive pill.
