medical experts presented findings which indicate that the wisespread availability of condoms statistically increase promiscuity

This couldn't be true! The liberals have been telling us that promiscuity is in no way linked to the availability of condoms!

Dry sex isn't helping things, either.

Not surprising. More important than the technical shortfallings of the condom though are the cultural issues involved that are entirely missed in the approach of the article. When the men, despite proper usage training, stop pulling the condoms over their walking sticks as fertility totems and start using them the right way, there might be some effect.

To understand the cultures we are dealing with you have to read the articles on Vampire politics and flying african wizards.

This is not new news. The government has always known that condoms will not prevent AIDS, the virus is small enough to pass through the microscopic openings in the latex. I was told this back in 1984, by an epidemiologist who was brought to LA to study and track the epidemic there. He was warning me to double glove. He said that the gov't didn't want the public to panic, so they let the condom and latex glove recommendation go out.

Dr. Green, Harvard: "20 years into the pandemic there is no evidence that more condoms leads to less AIDS."

Just show me that and I'll tell you which way the research went.

"The Ugandan government, which promoted abstinence and faithfulness, helped bring about a 75% decline in HIV prevalence among 15-19 age group, 60% in the 20-24, and a 54% decline overall by 1998. "

This literally represents millions of lives saved, yet the world media continuously ignore the Ugandan turn-around, prefering to tell the world we need more condoms, quilts and AIDwalks. Posturing for "compassion" while millions die---how sick.

Could you please ping the usual suspects?

There is an article in this months Discover about this. Condoms are better than nothing, but the whole continent of Africa has a massive problem of multiple sexual partners.

If I can find a link I will post it.

At the Medical Institute for Sexual Health HIV/Pandemic in Washington, DC last week medical experts presented findings which indicate that the wisespread availability of condoms statistically increase promiscuity and therefore the risk of contracting HIV.

Yet again scientific knowledge finally discovers what the believers have known all along.

Shalom.

According to Dr. Rand Stoneburner (formerly of the WHO and an independent advisor to USAID), "declines of HIV in Uganda are linked to behavior change…[and] include primary risk avoidance with a 65% decline in casual sex."

I think this is the very first time I've ever seen an "AIDS official" actually say this obvious fact in public.
