terrifying statistics

new HIV statistics from the centers for disease control are quite scary and serve as a reminder as to why safe(r) sex is so important:

"For the first times since AIDS was discovered more than 20 years ago, the number of Americans living with HIV infection has surpassed 1 million..."

"The study also found that one-quarter of those living with HIV are unaware of their infection; nearly half are African-American; and three-quarters of those infected are male. ..."

that's right.. over 250,000 people in the U.S. who are infected with HIV don't know they are. and 750,000 of those infected are men and boys.

so get tested, wear condoms and make your partner get tested!

I have been on Adultfriend finder for over 3 years but never hooked up with anyone or even become a paying member. I have always been a little too chicken to go through with contacting anyone. I have not lost touch with Aids or other diseases, but I think alot of people have put it out of their minds. I respect you for bringing this up and reminding everyone that we are not completely safe when we do try to find a friend for companionship. I also read you post on the passion site and I had no idea it even existed. Thanks for taking the time to post these blogs and keeping us informed on what is going on. I will go to the passion site and see if I am on both sites also. Keep up the good work and know someone really reads the blogs and cares about what you are saying.
