In an effort to battle the discrimination many of those who've been diagnosed with HIV face, these World AIDS Day ads show that their condition isn't what defines them.

The campaign was created by French advertiser AIDES, and agency TBWAParis. Black and white images show nude couples in seductive poses, with partners teaching one another new skills. The aim of this is to show that HIV-positive people have a lot to bring to a relationship, and that those being treated for the condition are highly unlikely to pass on the disease to their partners.

Adweek explained the World AIDS Day ads by saying, "Some 86 percent of HIV-positive people who've been tested in France, and are currently being treated, have an undetectable viral load, making it unlikely they will pass the virus on, according to AIDES. But intimate rejection remains a critical part of their lives."
