"How May the Sexual Desire be Controlled?"
This is a poster from the 1920s, from a series of posters produced by the Alberta Department of Public Health, on the subjects of tuberculosis, hygiene, childbirth, childcare, and sexuality/sexually transmitted diseases. The posters were distributed across Alberta through a travelling clinic which also administered examinations and inoculations.
