The front of the card shows a young man dressed as Dorothy from Wizard of Oz, wearing a wig and red slippers. He is kneeling on his right knee, holding a small basket on his left thigh. A witch is flying in the sky high above him and has written "Surrender Dorothy" in large white letters. On the back, on the top of the card, against yellow background, are the words: "Face the facts" and below is the "out loud" message: "Even people in Kansas get STDs." Underneath, protection factor is stated: "Ruby slippers - questionable. Condoms - pretty damn good." A phone number to call for help is provided.
