“Good evening everyone I’m Geraldo Rivera. Thank you. My love is like a red red rose wrote the poet but that was long before a modern day thorn appeared and added a new dimension to love. The dimension of fear. The new thorn of course, is AIDS. Love, relationships, romance and sex will never be the same.”
In this two-hour special, which was broadcast live from New York with taped cut-ins, Geraldo probes the mores and dangers inherent in the sexually precarious 1980s. Has sex changed with the growing emergence of AIDS and other STDs? The show pushes caution if you’re a single person looking to enjoy sex.
