Bea Arthur: Sexual Pioneer

Posted by Condomologist on April 28, 2009

I wrote awhile back about the Golden Girls making condom buying funny, and in the wake of Bea Arthur’s death this week, TV Guide revisits some seminal moments in television history as sexual taboos are shattered (including an old-school Jason Bateman clip from a 1987 episode of Valerie, where he and his girlfriend discuss condoms and birth control). It’s well worth viewing a clip of the Golden Girls if only for one of the catchiest theme songs of all time, but it’s pretty remarkable to hear the old ladies talking HIV and AIDS and condoms back in the 1990s given the shame and stigma still surrounding those issues today.
