Call attention to a serious problem with the material in the video ... This morning I learned that September ** is National HIV*AIDS and Aging Awareness Day. I had googled “AIDS and seniors” as I began research for an essay on the topic in reaction to a film I watched a few days ago, “Play the Game,” starring Andy Griffith. I was shocked when his character, in a comedic scene, asks a pharmacist for a bottle of Viagra for himself and a couple of boxes of condoms for his young grandson, explaining that old people don't need condoms because they don't have to worry about pregnancy. It is incredibly dangerous to promulgate the notion that unprotected *** is safe for seniors or anyone else who cannot become pregnant. I first became aware of this public health problem a couple of years ago when I was hired to edit a Ph.D. dissertation on the STD epidemic among seniors. Since symptoms of AIDS include many symptoms typical to aging, seniors are more likely to be diagnosed at an advanced stage than younger victims. Even without Viagra, many people are sexually active into their **s, **s, and **s, and when their partner precedes them in death, they are not aware of how the changing mores since their first sexual experiences has introduced deadly consequences to unprotected sexual activity. This morning’s search indicates that the topic has not been ignored by the media, but the recent film, starring one of the most beloved and trusted characters in American TV history is out there spreading seriously false information. I think Amazon should stop circulating the film until they can add a warning at the beginning and ending of the film. The best solution would be to omit that scene, and maybe even shoot a new one with a couple of the women discussing how they carry condoms when they hook up.
I stated in my description what the problem is and what I think will correct it. This is an unusual complaint for this form, but I couldn't find any other way to report it. The film is giving incorrect information that could cause sickness or death to many people.

I've been a customer for ** or more years. For years Amazon has been my go-to bookstore, but within the past few years, I count on Amazon because I don't have transportation to get out and get what I need.
I've emailed several media outlets (TV, radio, and my local newspaper) telling them about the movie and suggesting they take advantage of the September ** National HIV*AIDS and Aging Awareness Day to remind the public of the truth about how sexually active seniors are exposing themselves to serious danger by not practicing safe *** because they still think condoms are only used to prevent pregnancy.
