Did you know that today is World AIDS Day? No?
Well, did you know that there are nearly 33 million people living with HIV on this planet? Or that over 15 million children worldwide have been orphaned by AIDS? Or that AIDS kills 6,000 people every day in Africa?
Yeah, those are some pretty grave statistics.
And it’s not just Africa that is affected by the spread of this horrible disease. There are currently over 1.5 million people living with HIV in the U.S., many of which don’t even know. That means that “usually” practicing safe sex is not enough. Neither is trusting that your partner is clean when he or she tells you they are.
There is only one way to protect yourself against HIV, AIDS and every other STD out there:
Wrap it up.
No glove, no love.
Use a condom. Every time.
