“No glove, no love”

"No glove, no love” is a 1980s slogan advocating the practice of safe sex by the use of condoms (the “glove"). “No glove, no love!: rubbers--every time!” was a slogan of the Black Gay and Lesbian Leadership Forum of Los Angeles, California, in 1985. The health departments of many cities also adopted the “no glove, no love” slogan.
