This blew our minds when we saw it, so to celebrate the release of The Amazing Spiderman, we just had to share: way back in the 1970s, Marvel Comics teamed up with Planned Parenthood on a comic book that pitted Spiderman against a villain who was out to give teens the wrong information about sex. And we all know there’s nothing that Spiderman hates more than the spread of medically inaccurate information! Check it out.

Coolest spiderman comic strip ever! If you didn’t know VD is Venereal disease, now more commonly known as sexually transmitted disease (STD) or sexually transmitted infection (STI). (source wikipedia).

It’s almost mind blowing how backwards we have gone in public perceptive and dicussion around STDs compared to this comic released in 1970s. Does this still happen today? If so, anyone have some links to it?
