More Pictures from Vienna (XVIII International Aids Conference)

Going bananas for condoms?
Condoms galore!
What colour pack would you like?


  1. @Kofi – I have sooo many condoms now so yes there will definitely be plenty to sample. I am happy to give you a bunch so you can let me know if it preserves at least 20% of the experience. I actually want to write a post about pleasure, condoms and the risk of HIV…but time ooo….anyway, soon,

    @Shane – Oh you cynic!!!! What do you want it to say, lust???Only teasing – I hadn’t thought of it from that perspective but you’re right, lust or some other word like ‘fuck’ would be more appropriate

  2. @Tade – Thanks for sharing this…I think the survey is interesting. According to the survey 71% of people in South Africa have sex once a week with only 50% being sexually satisfied.

    You just motivated me to check http://www.unaids.org/en/CountryResponses/Countries/south_africa.asp for the latest stats and according to their country situation update, inter country prevalence varies between 5.3% and 46%. Of course the 46% is close to the 50% of people who according to the Durex survey say they enjoy sex but I would not draw any conclusions from that.

    I think the primary drivers of HIV are patriarchy (generally the most infected are young women between the ages of 15-19 who for a variety of reasons have had sex/been coerced into sex with significantly older men), a lack of comprehensive sexual education, in West Africa marriage is a significant risk factor for contracting HIV for women (concurrent partners/polygamy), women’s biological vulnerability to contracting HIV (its important to note that the social dimension fuels the biological vulnerability)…

    I have also shared some initial thought on the conference at http://www.awdf.org/browse/1295 I will write a specific post for this blog later

    Thanks for sharing the stats again
