Family / Re: How to Talk to Your Children About Sex

Never to early to start talking about it. Key is keeping it simple and short. Just keep bringing up different things a little at a time. Over time the topic gets easier to talk about and your kids will have an easier time asking you about it.

Would have made a sensationally story if the HIV stuff had come out when he did the spitting. Maybe it would have actually gotten a couple of people to pay attention that otherwise never would have. Opportunity missed.

Sexual Health / Young People Worldwide Know Less About Condoms
« Last post by frankfromatlanta on October 06, 2011, 10:41:13 AM »
I didn't write that headline. I pulled it from a story on Tu Salud
http://www.tusaludmag.com/articles/youth_contraception_international_2096_21185.shtml

That is a really sad state of affairs. I thought at least the rest of the world was making progress even though frank discussions about sex in the U.S remain non existent.

We need to break down this wall of fear or shame or whatever is stopping us from talking sex. It's a lot of fun when done safely!!

Fitness / Exercise / Roberto Alomar, Steroids and HIV

Did you see this recent blog entry about Roberto Alomar?

"So at a time when HIV-positive people like Willie Campbell are getting jailed for spitting on people, which has virtually zero chance of spreading the virus, the Hall of Fame voting committee is more worried about who did and didn't use steroids.

I guess it is progress that HIV isn't a factor.

What do you think?

Gloria became pregnant at 17 by a man she was dating from the neighborhood. Her mother was unaware that her daughter was even dating, much less having sex. Most painful to Gloria was that the father, with whom she was so in love, insisted she get an abortion. When she refused, he disappeared. Gloria had the baby, and life certainly changed.

Sexual Health / "Abstinence-Only" Study Reignites Sex Education Debate
« Last post by iana5252 on February 19, 2010, 03:54:34 PM »
A recent study found that abstinence-only sex education programs delayed the onset of sexual activity in pre-teens and reduced the amount of sexual activity among those who were sexually active.
