I heard the phrase on today's Oprah.

Some guy said it is an issue in our community.
<marquee>Do justly, now. Love mercy, now. Walk humbly, now. You are not obligated to complete the work, but neither are you free to abandon it.</marquee> If you miss me at the back of the bus You can't find me nowhere Come on over to the front of the bus I'll be riding up there -Seeger <marquee>Do justly, now. Love mercy, now. Walk humbly, now. You are not obligated to complete the work, but neither are you free to abandon it.</marquee> Don't Talk. DONATE!

I said yes.

I've seen a lot of shows concerning AIDS. But this show had me in tears.

Its a big problem within our community, and if you read or talk with some people.........sex is something they do without thought. Promiscuity, is somehting thats is not only recognized, but encouraged, especially with men.

We are not handling business, and its showing.
The thing that bothered me about the show was when the women said that some of their boyfriends don't want to use a condom although they know they are having sex with someone with AIDS.

And when that guy justified their keeping promiscuity secret because women supposedly don't want to know.

Even if that were true, since when was everything about giving her want she wanted?

Did their S.O.'s want the HIV they gave them?

*takes deep breaths*
Like most things in life, it's relative. An individual's behavior, especially if it is promiscious, will naturally make him/her spend more time thinking about the issue and see the world in that fashion, potentially.

I don't think the world is any more promiscuous now than it's ever been. But media overdrive is 24/7 and many issues are played as "crisis" situations. Media consumers pick up that impression.

I disagree, i think there are more promiscuity now..........which in itself causes problems, for those involved. (unwanted pregnancy, certain diseases, etc)

The key is, these are people making choices.......which im ok with, what i have issues with..........are people that entangle others, unknowingly to these diseases.

I agree a bit.

For women, the sleeping around rate might have upped a bit because women no over more opportunity to look around. Because of changes in workforce demographics, for example.

And younger people are sleeping around.

But overall, I doubt things are much different today than yesterday.

Like, I don't think there was a time when faithfulness was twice as common is it is today.

I think that today, more people are willing to admit that they've been promiscuous. Witnesses of promiscuity no longer have to pretend they didn't see what they saw.

Added with media representation, and it seems that a crisis blew up out of nowhere.
