"When you have sex with someone, you are not only having sex with him or her, but you are also having sex with every person that individual has had sex with before having sex with you," that's what the adverstisement for sexual health and communicable diseases tells the public. Well folks, do you believe it? And what's the rationale behind this warning? Is the government merely trying to "scare" people into practicing safer sex or not having sex at all?

Do I now have a right to increase the number of notches on my bedpost??
I think it's a little of both. This message has been around for the last 15+ years. It hit home with me when a very hetero guy from the neighbor died of AIDS.

Over a couple of goodbye drinks, the gang [male and female] from the neighborhood talked about the girl he was suppose to have gotten it from. It dawned on me how easily it could have been anyone of us, instead of him. Every one of the people sitting around the table had at least one sexual partner in common and some had an indirect connection to this woman.

It scared me into practicing safer and more circumspect sexual practices.
I honestly think we were better off with our little huts buy the riverbank. I mean it was so much simple. Now it could be a death sentence to enage in the oldest activity to man. When you talk about those episodes youve had in the past and some of those nights you over look its scary. Everytime you take a Aids Test its like dam, what if ??? You know. Sometimes living life seems so gloomy in the modern times.

These type of experiences should be a wake up call to society at large. I has a student in a class not too long ago who made the idiotic claim that his melanin effectively immunizes persons of African decent from HIV/AIDS.

I must confess, that it caught me off guard, and I lost my composure in the classroom. But how stupid can people be.

And, you teach on the university level, right? It has been said that a little bit of knowledge is a dangerous thing; but I'm saying that in this case [i.e., HIV/AIDS], ignorance can be fatal.

I feel you on this point. But that is why it is so important for us to have discussions about sexual history and sexual health with new partners. Before engaging in sexual activity with a new partner, ask him or her when was the last time they were tested and what were the results. You would be surprised at the number of people who do not even bother to bring up this subject before having sex with a new partner(s). Poor minority groups who have limited or no access to affordable health care and treatment are especially vulnerable to sexually-transmitted dis-ease. So we must protect ourselves.

I agree with you here. Ask this question;but leave the other questions, e.g., who, how many, etc., alone.


I know of a brother who drives around with his current STD results in the glove department of his car with his nasty ass self. Just because you go around with your results doesn't mean that someone should sleep with you. You still have to take precautions against contracting a disease and getting the woman pregnant. Some people just don't understand and they don't think. They think their health is a game.

Sure Brother AG, you can add another notch to the one that's already there. So that makes TWO whole notches, don't hurt yourself there now brother. Smile

Brother Zakar, we're not saying that people can't have sex. Of course people will have sex. What we're advising is that people take precautions. These are not the times to be careless about what you're doing and not care about yourself. I know that it's summer time and women are wearing shorter and shorter sun dresses, and you may want to have sex with them. If you do, brothers need PROTECT themselves. Young brothers especially need to be careful.
