There was a time I had a heart last year and I wrote a column titled ‘Stop sleeping around, I don’t need competition.’ Many said I was selfish but my advice still stands today because half the people you sleep with are probably sick. I know I’m the last person to be telling you to stop having sex especially when it has become my routine. A friend of mine called me a whore because I have been a sex taxi recently. But you know what, call me whatever – at least I know my status.
There is something I want us to talk about today, it will be pure truth. I understand most of you have been long diagnosed with the phobia for telling and believing the truth and the closest you have come to saying anything close to the truth was admitting that you are a fool.
It’s that time of the year that people reserve such little time to talk about a steaming issue reserved with statistics and people we blindly know that are also counted. Out of 365 days, we only make noise about getting tested for the sins that we have long committed for 364 days. The way we educate people about HIV/Aids in Namibia is like feeding a baby soup with a fork. He will never get enough. But I will try my best as I have been committed to doing.
Let’s face it, Aids is real and it is taking so many lives. Even the innocent. I know we came a bit late when common sense was free but it cannot continue this way. Sex is so sweet, especially before marriage since most of you are not gonna get married anyways. But it does not mean we should turn this into a joy ride. It does not mean we should open our legs to every idiot who knocks with blessings and night insurance. It also does not mean we should stick our pipis at every hole we see open. There are sick people out there who have it right with Harambee and make sure you too line up for some coloured medicine.
I know how smart you think you are but I have a few definitions that might classify your intellectual status. Stupid is she who goes to a club and gets picked up by some random thirsty idiot and ends up having sex. Stupid is she who has random quickies with whoever is the guest of the night. Stupid is she who thinks condoms are only to prevent pregnancies. Stupid is she who thinks a morning-after pill will solve the problem after a 40 evening. Stupid is she who knows well that she has a weak password but refuses to carry her condoms.
And yes, there are equally stupid if not more arrogant men. Stupid is he who thinks looks are a mirror of health status. Stupid is he who thinks withdrawing solves all problems. Stupid is he who thinks having it quick and fast will not allow any transmission. Stupid is he trusts his instincts over reality. Stupid is he who thinks firstly, trusts women, and secondly has been showered with lies that women are cautious about their health. And finally, stupid is you. Such witchcraft.
Dear virgins and those still on the negative side of their status, there are people out there who do not give a damn about their health and do not mind sharing. Your innocence, the number of times you have had sex, the beauty in your partner and how well you know their parents will not save you. Jy sal kak.
Yes, life will eventually f#ck us all but do not take the lead in the f#cking of yourself. I have had and still am having my fair share of sex, but just from my previous test results, I too am thinking of cutting my chain to at least 4. Yes, I’m trying my best. You just can’t expect me to let go of my women like that at once. I use condoms for two reasons: 1. kids are expensive and 2, life on medication is even worse. I trust no woman whom I have not been with for testing. And even then, that trust only last for the hours that she is at sight. You never know what goes on at the end of the girls or guys night only.
Lastly, I respect women who carry condoms. Call them whatever but chances are that they have dodged the bullet because of their cautiousness. And yes, just in case they sleep with your boyfriend, at least there will be no lab follow-ups. Such women need balls and a trophy for they are selfish about their health. They have no space for compromises under no circumstances.
Young brothers who suffer from the disability of keeping their pants on and wanting to have sex with anything with a skirt, your days are numbered. If you are going to sleep around, at least use a condom because you idiots don’t want to stick to one partner mos.
So when you go out this weekend, be mindful that Aids has no face tag and many will not tell you where they stand. If she takes off her pants at the same time with her undies, be worried. If he does not mind going 40, then equally be worried. For you madams who are not gonna ask me if I brought a condom – that is not how I die. I have my equipment sorted.
