The Aids epidemic on the continent is undeniably something that needs serious attention. There are many ways that stemming the spread of Aids can happen but stopping women from wearing miniskirts and making sure they are virgins is not one of them.
Many of us believe talking about sex should be saved for drinks with the boys or get togethers with the girls. But more people, especially women, need to talk openly about ideas of pleasure.
