She was so right! But it was more than interesting it was on point! And I knew instantly that God had given me something to say that was straight from my heart. It is an unorthodox video, but it it so on point!!
It is 2-1 that if a woman has sex with a man who is infected with HIV, he will infect her. On the reverse, it is 20-1 that a woman will infect a man. Yes, it is easier for men to infect women, that's a fact. Approximately 12% of the men in the United States are infected from having sex with a woman and about 52% of the women are infected from having sex with a man.
If a man don't respect your choice to use a condom, then he's not respecting you. And I gonna ask, "Why would you have sex with a man that does not respect the choices you make about your body and life?" Just wondering, if companionship and the concept of love is more important than your life? Why are you are willing to sacrifice self-respect just to have a man?
Protected Protect I'm launching is all about. People taking control over their bodies! The hardest fact to face with HIV is the simplest one, it is a prevention disease.
These day's I say come prepared. You can carry condoms in your make-up bag, or you can carry them in cute little case like this one. There are even female condoms that you can insert in your own body. The bottom line, you must take ownership of you vagina! We hope that the love will keep us safe, but I speak out of experience; At the end of the day, the only person that will keep you safe is you. The rule, if he is not your husband, no condom no sex. It does not matter how long you have been in a relationship with him. By the way, if you've been in a relationship with him that long and he hasn't married you, why are you wasting your pretty? Love yourself more than you love a man, or the idea of having a man. It could save your life!!
Post Script: I am happy that both Just in Case and the Female Condom Company are sponsors of my Social Media Event at Encore Liquid Lounge on July 15th. Ladies you will be able to see both up close!!
