For People who Care about HIV~~~, 10 December 2005
Author: alicealice88 from United States

Just watched it on Sundance channel. I don't want to get into how pornography has the potential (subjectively) to humiliate and degrade women. However, it is rather more significant for everybody to be aware of the HIV threat, whatever kind of lifestyle they decide to lead. It might be on a small scale for those doctors who know and care enough for people in the porn industry, and also do take the responsibility on their shoulder to make sure, at least, that they would stay "healthy". After early 1990s, with the invention of medicine that prolong the lives of people who have been infected with HIV, the younger generations tend to become more ignorance of the gravity of the illness. It is always good to keep in mind: Use a condom!
