RE: Scared Of Sex
Despite the statistics for HIV being low, if you are a middle class white male in Europe/America etc, I still think..You really never fucking know.
In fact I would like to research more about the demographics of HIV positive people in Europe/America.
One women, maybe have slept with two men, and one of those men might have slept with 10 women. And those 10 women might have slept with say, another two men each. So thats then 20 people. And then what about those two men each of those women slept with, they probably slept with more women. So like even if your just having sex with 'respectable, middle class women' etc or whatever, for me its the idea that through promiscuity, and std could possibly spread from some druggie underclass users to more respectable, middle class non drug user types.
So you never know.
The statistics probably make sense, but it still feels slightly caviler in this day and age to just say fuck it, I can sleep with anyone because Im a white male that doesn't take drugs so therefore I wont get HIV.
I did hear about an interesting book called "The Wisdom of Whores: Bureaucrats, Brothels and the Business of Aids" by Elizabeth Pisani that I want to read soon, all about HIV and how its still generally only a problem in drug users that inject, gay men, and prostitutes..
