Sex is good. Sex is wonderful. Sex is one of the most sought thing in the world.
Such exciting and pleasurable activity also comes with a risk.
A risk so great that it might destroy intimacy and ruin the relationship.
Nevertheless, it is not the End of The World. Life still goes on. Some other people won’t even know that we have contracted the “risk”. Many still lead a normal life, with minimal disturbance on the society and career. Some are lucky enough to live up to the normal expectancy life-span.
We can still kiss. No problem in sharing food. We have no fear to hug. We are capable to love, and being loved.
It’s just that… we have a few little regrets…
We cannot donate blood to our loves when they bleed…
We have to take drugs regularly to prevent worsening of the condition…
We are constantly in fear that others might stigmatize us, viewing us as the untouchable…
If we know the protection measure earlier, we wouldn’t have to go through all this!
Therefore, on the very special occasion of World AIDS Day, I would like to promote to you to use condom during sexual activity to prevent transmission of HIV and other sexually transmitted disease.
And regarding the Umbrella, this is how you use it.
“Sediakan payung sebelum Hujan”
(A malay proverb: prepare your umbrella before it rains!)
