Eman: Got HIV? Don’t Have Sex

RE: Pope: Some condom use justified

Eman: When most people have the flu they often take care to not contaminate others. Not many walking around licking phones and door knobs. Why. because it’s not the right thing to do. That would be a no brainer. Why then are those HIV positive even considering having intercourse in the first place. There are many ways to express true love to another without it isn’t there? I don’t recall any deaths from not releasing or exchanging body fluids. In other words when was that last time someone died because they never had sex? Trust me, look around, there are plenty of people out there that haven’t gotten any nor are they going to get any in the near future and it’s funny, no mass deaths as a result.

Question: Do you agree with Eman’s solution to the HIV/AIDS problem re: preventing the spread of the disease?

Risky Business

“… investigators and Spokane health officials fear the number of sex partners Zuriel Roush exposed to the virus could be as high as 80. If that’s true, the case could create an unprecedented health problem for the Inland Northwest.”

So why in 2009, do people still engage in unprotected sex– with strangers?
