Yesterday's The Times, newspaper had a long article about AIDS in South Africa. Every now and then we hear stories that the fight against AIDS is being won, but the figures tell a different story. On one side of the story was this table below.

- 35 - 39 year olds: 38.4% (32.4% 2008)
- 40 - 44 year olds 38.4% (23.3% 2008)

This table above starts with 30 year olds, but children as young as 12 - 13 are being infected, not to talk about babies born with it!
Winning the fight against HIV? Pull my other leg!
But sex is one of our human rights, right? It's your right to have sex willy nilly. It's also a natural need, like food and water, and you should treat it as such, hungry, you eat, thirsty, have something to drink, feel like sex, jump into bed with someone, anyone. Some even claim that if you don't have regular sex you might end up with psychological problems, or even get physically ill.
You're definitely considered a nut case if you're not screwing like a rabbit. (excuse my language, but I get really angry when I see what's happening here). All the result of the Humanist attitude, "if it feels right just do it".
