AIDS and crazy life

Gloria Machado León 17 julio, 2013

HIV, Human Immunodeficiency Virus

The happiness and dissolute behavior of young people that characterize summer will achieve its greatest splendor just at the end of the academic year when excursions increase and hormone disorder excites the physical attraction. Then, reasoning needs to prevail over the ecstasy and the crazy life with no intention of stopping the pleasure, but without forgetting the magic word; protection.

Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) which is a sign of AIDS and other sexual transmitted diseases should not be a taboo mortifying the psyche to stop the pleasure of sexuality to the full, as long as good sense prevails on the part of men and women of any sexual orientation.

Statistics assert that young people and particularly men that have sex with other men, are still the main groups more likely to catch HIV in Cuba, therefore they should have the biggest interest in knowing the strategies of prevention due to the fact they are the most vulnerable segment of the population.

Official figures show that the largest amount of people living with HIV in Cuba ranges between 20 and 29 years old. In 2012, there was a significant increase between the ages of 15 and 19 years old. Other facts confirm that men start to have sexual intercourse when they are 15 years old while girls start at the age of 16.

Obviously, it is about short periods of the human life in which hormones struggle with the reason of the thinking being, therefore reasoning should be endowed with enough knowledge for every person to be able to protect herself and to induce her couple to do the same not to suffer the stress of abstinence.

It is essential not to be led by the ecstasy of the crazy life.

Physical protection means help, but it is important that parents and grandparents break the prejudice ties and stop thinking that sex is a taboo subject when they talk to children and grandchildren. Effective communication depends precisely on this comprehension, besides it marks the difference between the life and the premature death of the younger people.
