Anal Sex Largest Cause of HIV in Africa
lifesite ^ | June 16, 2003

Posted on 06/18/2003 1:13:11 AM PDT by miltonim

TUEBINGEN, June 16, 2003 (LifeSiteNews.com) - A study by researchers at the University of Tuebingen in Germany has found that anal sex, both homosexual and heterosexual, is the second largest cause of HIV transmission in Africa. Transmission in medical settings, such as through dirty needles, is listed as the primary cause, says the study published in the current edition of The Journal of Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Aids.

In a finding which has HIV/AIDS activists on edge, the researchers, say vaginal transmission of HIV is a very distant third compared to medical transmission and transmission through anal sex.

The report's author Dr. Stuart Brody, of the Institute of Medical Psychology and Behavioural Neurobiology, said people in Africa need to be told that anal sex poses a greater risk of transmitting the Aids virus.

so whgich is it? is it the largest or second largest?
I have been saying for years that used needles was the biggest cause- anal sex is 2nd (by a large margin I suspect) and vaginal is a "distant 3rd".

So what they hell are we doing spending 15 BILLION dollars? How many clean needles could we buy for 1 Billion?we could probably build a needle factory for a few mill...

This won't go over well with the passage of legalized gay mairrages in Canada (O-Canada).

Many Log Cabin (gay) FReepers will be quite depressed.

And queers are pushing Dubya to support gay mairrages in the U.S. as well (vote pressure).

If it's true in Africa, it's true in the rest of the world - the anus was not intended for sexual purposes.

The march to Sodom continues . . .

Oh Oh Oh. First love in sex kills you, but what kills you most are doctors who love you and provide you free health care. There, get a vaccine, catch AIDS. Makes a lot of sense.

Didn't the Bible say some of us would rather be dead than seeing this?

According to the article, it's the 2nd largest cause, altho miltonim's title says otherwise.

Perhaps the admin can edit the title for accuracy's sake?

"If it's true in Africa..."

Unfortunately, heterosexual anal sex is commonly used for contraceptive purposes in backward (heheheh :) countries.

If the primary cause is "medical" or dirty needles it would seem the huge problem is drugs and not sex. Perhaps the focus of prevention should be changed.

Also appears this is another fabricated headline for FR. Article in fact says anal sex is 2nd, not 1st primary cause.

Homosexuality is deviant sexual behavior and a mental illness.

Homosexuals: 1) subject their body parts to uses nature did not intend, such activities often presenting immediate risk to the participants; 2) are prone to greater suicide, depression and other mental disorders and deficiencies than the heterosexual population at large; 3) are prone to far greater sexually transmitted diseases, including AIDS, than the (normal) heterosexual population; 4) molest young people (pedophilia) at a far greater rate than heterosexuals; 5) engage in degrading sexual promiscuity, oftentimes engaging in risky sex with many partners during the same event; 6) are engaged in aggressive and widespread efforts to indoctrinate our children by introducing the homosexual lifestyle using public schools as the primary indoctrination “vehicle” and likewise, through the movie/music/TV industry, with the dual goals of gaining school-age acceptance of homosexuality and encouraging sexual activity among children, especially same-sex experimentation; 7) view most everything through a mindset heavily biased in favor of the homosexual lifestyle and culture, which renders them mostly useless when asked to opine on matters that normal heterosexuals better resolve.

The mental deficiencies described herein applying to homosexuals shall not be confused with the deficiencies associated with the left wing democrat/socialist/Marxist/ feminist/environmentalists, etc., mind, which have their own distinct set of mental disorders.

This doesn't even touch on what the Bible has to say about homosexuality.

I read that anal sex was the culprit.

That is a practice that homo and hetro men both participate in.

God only knows why.

I cannot for the life of me understand any pleasure for the recipeant of this practice.

I will not allow my gyn to do this I make that clear every year. When I had to be put out for my hysterectomy I told the gyn to knock himself out checking while I was asleep cause he is not gonna ever do it while I am awake.

Isn't this a practice of rapists too.

I agree with you no innees in an outey.

How can this be? Certainly the noble natives of the dark continent would not be at fault with any of this? They must imedietly appeal to the international community for the sake's of their dictators - in order for them to reap offerings from the evil western white-dominated societies who no doubt infest their simple and genteel cultures with such devilish diseases.

That was a long eye boggling post.

Common sense should prevail. The tears and fissures that result in this activity are breeding grounds that lead to infection.

There is a reason we wash our hand after using the potty. Bacteria that is spread to food by unwashed hands resulting in resteraunt related hepatitis.

Why in the hell put your ureatha into a cesspool to phrase it kindly.

Maybe aids is a result of multiple anal partners due to all the different bacteria being dipped into. Mix all that up and you get a super bacteria that morphs from hepetitis to the HIV or Aids strength strain.

To add to the pot a bleeding bowel.

I will try to be as delicate as possible. My experience has led me to find that there are many women who enjoy this experience, with suitable foreplay. That being said, I have found myself (a-hem) uncomfortable developing a relationship with those "ladys" who have discovered they like it. Makes ya wonder how they found out....Regards

I would disagree with "mental illness" .I agree with the pink lobby...It's genetic. That being said, and my being a compassionate conservative, I propose we fund studys to correct this genetic abnormality and find ways to apply gene therapy to fix this obvious genetic defect.

(Excerpt from "Spikes")

Curmudgeon Emeritus -- Francis W. Porretto

May 7, 2003

With President Bush pushing a $15 billion international AIDS initiative, much debate is swirling around both the appropriateness of the measure and its size.

Every dollar of that $15 billion is to be spent on the well-being of non-Americans. Needless to say, that has the opponents of foreign aid upset. The international AIDS crusaders want the amount to be doubled or tripled. Between those two poles lie a host of intermediate positions your Curmudgeon is too tired to review in detail. Besides, they're insignificant compared to the far edges of the spectrum.

The justifications for the bill, and for the huge amount of money it allocates, are the statistical explosion of AIDS infections and deaths in the Third World, and the high cost of the drugs used to treat both AIDS and pre-AIDS HIV infection.

This isn't really a gay issue.

Due to difficulties in teaching the use of condoms, as well as supplying them, and due to objections from the church, health workers taough the Africans to engage in anal sex to prevent pregnancy.

While there is definately a homosexual compnent, it's not the main issue, by a long shot. This is borne out by the virtually equal rates among both men and women in Africa.

I doubt whether the pleasure of the recipient is of any concern whatsoever, particularly if she is female. Google "dry sex" sometime and see another big cause of females contracting the HIV virus in large numbers in Africa. That and the practice of female genital mutilation spells out to me that female sexual pleasure is dead last priority in many places.

Thanks for your comments. I didn't think my monolouge on homosexuality was that long, just complete. As to what causes aids -- I really don't know. Your theory is as good as any as far as I am aware. I do agree with your urethea to cesspool metaphor -- well stated. Actually, just the thought of anal sex gives me the shivers (in a bad sense that is.) For the live of me, I can't imagine what fun the gays see in anal sex.

Actually, I believe that both HIV and hepatitis are viral infections, not bacterial. Your point may still be valid, though.

JOHANNESBURG, 22 June (PLUSNEWS) - Young South Africans are interpreting oral and anal sex as safe because they are not mentioned in HIV/AIDS prevention messages, an expert has said.
A survey conducted by professor Quarraisha Abdool Karim has revealed that 15 percent of 800 pupils aged 15 to 19 surveyed in KwaZulu-Natal province considered anal sex a safer alternative, despite it carrying the highest risk of HIV infection.
A local newspaper, The Sunday Times, quoted her as saying: "We need to make sure that our prevention messages are as complete as possible about the different ways that you can get HIV/AIDS."
Karim also said her findings showed that the country's HIV/AIDS awareness messages were too vague.

consider the clitoris surgery, piercing rituals. Anal sex may be common as well as much needle sharing.

Like I have said before no one would have sex in a septic tank and God designed that orifice two one way leak proof shinctors for a reason.

And lastly we wash our hands after wiping to prevent hepatitis and how many in the heat of sexual passion use the anal then to mouth mode. HELLOOOO instant hepatitis.

Then IMO you mix a few different strains of Hepatitis together by this practice and you have a bacteria morphing into Aids.
