I went to a talk yesterday given by the Executive Director of the National Aids committee for Jamaica. After a little exercise she did, it made me think that sex is really not worth the risks, so that’s it. Lock down, turn off, retire.
She gave 4 people a piece of paper each. One had the letter S, one G, one C and one P. She had told us not to open it until she said.
Then she made us meet and greet each other at the start. Then she explained that that was similar to us having sex with other people. I had the letter S, which meant Syphillis. So everybody whose hand I shook, caught syphillis from me. G was for Gonorhea so everybody whose hand that person shook caught Gonorhea. C was for Condom. That person was safe, so they didnt catch anything and P was for pregnant.
So that illustrated how sexual diseases, including HIV are spread. So when you have sex with one person, you not just having sex with that person, but rather with everybody else that the partner has slept with as well!
I had known this of course, but the way it was illustrated really brought it home to me.
It’s just not worth it. Of course if you are what you think to be a monogamous relationship, it’s not so bad. But how do you know? You don’t, unless you watch your partner 24/7, which is impractical.
So you get my reasoning for the lockdown now?
