Jaime Foxx and Ludacris for HIV prevention campaign “I know”

Wednesday, March 31st, 2010

 

On March, 4th Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) started a new media campaign “I know”. The goal of this program is to encourage African-American population to discuss issues about HIV and AIDS. The venues of the program include popular social media – Facebook and Twitter,  just to name a few. People know plenty of information about HIV/AIDS , but it’s not as “hot” of a topic anymore in casual conversation. Treatment from HIV/AIDS became more powerful, there are not as many deaths anymore. At the same time, African-American community suffers more than any other communities from this devastating disease (statistics show young African Americans have one of the highest rates of HIV in the United States).

Our celebrities, including actor Jaime Foxx and singer Ludacris, came out with public announcements. If people will go for testing, start using condoms or just discussing those issues more often, than “I know” campaign will succeed.

ask questions

 

 

After surveying 12,000 people via Internet, Durex (the condom maker company), revealed the yearly British Sex Survey. According to it,

- One third of England’s population will have sex with anybody for a sum of £1,000,000;

- Typical Kingdom’s citizen had sex with approximately 2 to 5 people;

- Average Brit is having sex 3-4 times per week;

- At the same time, 65% of the country does not have any intention to cheat on their loved ones;

- 5% are thinking about a coworker and 14% are thinking about their ex, while having sex;

Here comes the shocker,

– 22% of participants never used condoms!

Oh, no! In one of the most developed countries, with one of the most educated populations, every 5th citizen at some point of his life had sex without protection? Listen up, sex educators, Health Ministry and social workers! You have to get your nation up to current information about AIDS, STDs and unwanted pregnancies.

Vatican and Condom Vending Machines

Pregnancy and STDs among teenagers became serious issues dealt with all over the world.  One million teenagers become pregnant every year. Media, music, society teach our teenagers that sex is an ordinary part of teenager’s life. There is only one solution – sex education. To educate young generation about safe sex should be a common task for schools, parents, community.

Keplero High school in Rome decided to be the first one to install a condom vending machine as part of educational process of safe sex. It created a squall of opinions. Catholic Church claimed that accessibility of condoms pushes teenagers to have sex.

“This is not about stimulating the use of condoms or intercourse,” Antonio Panaccione, the school headmaster, told The Associated Press. “On the contrary, it’s about prevention and education.”

Cardinal Agostino Vallini, said it “cannot be approved by Rome’s ecclesiastical community or by Christian families who are seriously concerned with the education of their children.”

Vatican does not think that condom use will help to prevent pregnancies or STDs among teenagers. In their opinion, moral issues and education are much more important.

Piero Uroda, the leader of Italy’s association of Catholic pharmacists, said condoms were to blame for greater than before number of rapes.

Condom thoughts from Jon Stewart

condom-Jon-Stewart

For those of you, who think I am not aware what Jon Stewart says blogging,  let me assure you, I do.

Jon Stewart is my favorite news anchor. I did not make a mistake, his independent and unique way to comment on current news and events makes me THINK. I enjoy his sense of humor, his way of analyzing our life.

That’s  why I felt so excited to see him live in Atlantic City.  He was performing in Borgatta.

His monologues and sketches were real, visible and funny.

I especially enjoyed his thoughts about a ban on condom’s ad on public TV. It comes down to following –

Do you think that teens will be encouraged to have sex by watching condom’s commercials? No, they most likely go wild after drinking beer. However, beer commercials are running on every single channel!

It was worth to drive to AC just to breeze fresh air coming from the ocean and get a bit of refreshing thoughts to my head.

Jon, you should live forever!

JLS Condom made with LOVE

Tuesday, March 9th, 2010

POP Band JLS (stands for Jack the Lad Swing), came up with a new CONDOM – in order to promote condom use.

Condoms will have a snappy name Just Love Safe.  This name is inspired by the band hit song Everybody In Love and abbreviation of group’s name.

Idea came out from the band interview with The Sun a month ago. First it sounded like a joke, but Durex company got in touch with them (Durex is always on a top of  the game) and the idea became a reality.

MARVIN HUMES, ASTON MERRYGOLD, ORITSE WILLIAMS and JONATHAN “JB” GILL decided on color-coordinated condoms to each one of them;

Aston gets a blue one, Marvin will have green, Oritse signs for red and JB for  yellow.

POP Band JLS is a winner of Shagger of The Year award in 2009. Women are in love with charismatic young musicians and the band is famous as being irresistible Casanovas.

Their influence on young fans will help worldwide campaigns to encourage safe sex and use of condoms.

Who said that size does not matter?

For some men their p***s is their price.

Almost all men – regardless what they say – wish to have a larger p***s.

Whatever you say, but our “Big Brother”  Condomania is always on a top of the game. They recently gave us an update from their database on p***s sizes, grading them by the 50 states of USA. They also ranked 20 U.S. cities by an average size. Similar study was published in 1948 by Kinsey researchers.

So, now looking at this data, you can find a city, where you can really become a stud (sorry Dallas!).

So, who are the nominee? (Drum Roll, please!)

Gold Medal State in Average P***s Size category – New Hampshire;
And the Last place goes to – Wyoming;

Gold Medal in U.S. City category for Average P***s Size – New Orleans;
And the Last place goes to -  Dallas/Ft. Worth

Condom distribution at 2010 Vancouver Olympics

Tuesday, March 2nd, 2010

 

Olympics condom

It started with this news report

 

During 17 days of Olympic Games in Vancouver, British Columbia Centre for Disease Control distributed 100,000 condoms. Then, when a rumor started that there was a shortage, a new shipment of 8,500 additional condoms came from the Canadian Foundation for AIDS Research. 

Free condoms were distributed not just among athletes, but also to security, maintenance and volunteers. They were handed out in public bathrooms of the pavilions, when people were attending free concerts. Volunteers participated in the condoms distribution. 

Clay Adams of Vancouver Coastal Health said, “When you’ve got a global audience like this, it’s a huge opportunity to educate the world”.

He also mentioned that 40 000 condoms out of 100 000 condoms were distributed among athletes. 

Adams said, “Indications are that Vancouver topped the podium for Winter Olympics. Although we recently heard that they issued 35 million condoms for Mardi Gras in Rio, so I suppose we all have a long, long way to go to reach that mark.”

The first time free condoms were handed out at the Olympics in Barcelona in 1992. But Vancouver marked this story as the first time getting shortage of condoms in the history of Olympics.

 Thanks Canada for raising AIDS awareness!
