The documentary "Sex Positive," "explores the life of Richard Berkowitz, a revolutionary gay S&M sex worker turned AIDS activist in the 1980s, whose incomparable contribution to the invention of safe sex has never been aptly credited."
This film places the emergence of HIV/AIDS into the context of the gay rights liberation, describes the initial controversy over the actual cause of AIDS, and chronicles the invention of "safe sex" in a time when there was no such thing.
