It’s medical fact that there is no sexual transmission of HIV if there is no sexual activity. We can simply put, “No Sex = No AIDS” (that is something youth easily remember). However a majority of youth report that, they experience first sexual encounter between 15 to 25 no matter what elder tells them about waiting until marriage. Though it must be hard to stay abstain till the marriage, due to the rapid changes in your body and the way society people looks at you. I think it is more preferable to stress on concept to postpone it or wait until you are older to begin sex because it is healthier on many level to avoid early sex while you are growing up
Rate: Safest ***
B: Be faithful (Monogamous relation between uninfected partners)
We urge people to choose to have sex only with one person, who is not infected with HIV. Being faithful with one partner is far safer than being promiscuous with different ones. Monogamy limits the chances of getting infected with HIV through sex. A commitment to monogamy is not foolproof, however, recognizing that not everyone tells a partner the truth about past sexual encounters. Being faithful is the ideal, but not the present reality.
If or when a person becomes sexual active, using a condom is better than not using one. While Condoms are not perfect (Nothing in life can be completely guaranteed), well-manufactured condoms offer protection against many STI including HIV. When is used properly and every time, the incidence of HIV transmission is greatly reduced. Unprotected sex is never a safe or wise choice unless the couple is truthfully committed to monogamy.
*Most young people who contact HIV get it through sex, usually heterosexually. Yet, some youth become infected with HIV through sharing needles (for drugs, steroids, tattoos, body piercing and rarely now, blood transmission). Some HIV positive youth are infected at birth or from mother’s breast milk. We tell teens two important things in the fight against HIV/AIDS.
1) If you love your friend, it’s your responsibility to help save them from HIV.
2) Shy=Die. If you’re too shy to talk truthfully and ask, friends and you may get HIV and die permanently from AIDS. We believe that it is the human right of every maturing young adult to have complete and honest access to the medically accurate facts to stop HIV.
