    Let's talk about sex: Is hip safe-sex discussion making a comeback through memes?

    Since the only frame of reference I have is my own, I talk a lot about growing up in the '90s. Of course, I would also argue that that the '90s was the best decade ever: daytime talk shows ruled everything, Courtney Love was queen and MTV didn't suck yet.
