Eliodor Kersaint: South Beach Will Never Be The Same
What would you say if we told you there were at least 10 to 15 other playas rollin on South Beach with HIV and hooking up with as many party girls as they can. Word on South Beach is that this party killer was with many women and that there are a lot of girls going and checking themselves out without contacting Police out of embarrassment. Not only that, we are not counting the bi-sexual HIV men hooking up every weekend on South Beach.
We have had contact with 2 of the most reputable clinics on South Beach and there is a significant increase in women asking for HIV tests. The fact is that HIV has not been taken seriously by the heterosexuals or by that matter the Homosexuals either. South Beach for years now has been a playas dream. Hip Hop artists are always down here hooking up with the local hotties totally unprotected running trains and after party orgies.
From European cities to American suburbs to African villages to South American streets, stereotypes concerning sex roles and romance have made teenage girls hesitant to insist on condom use and liable to risks, according to the review of 268 worldwide studies from the 1990s to the present.
In addition, social conventions and persisting myths about the nature of the disease continue to hamper communication about sex, researchers found.
The study’s findings are echoed by local health providers, who say they have seen increasing numbers of teenagers who abstain from sexual intercourse but practice oral and anal sex.
The practice reveals an alarming ignorance about how the disease is spread, health educators say.
“They’re thinking they’re safe, but they’re not,” said Joan Specht, nurse practitioner at Planned Parenthood of South Palm Beach and Broward Counties, who added that she sees teenagers from across the socioeconomic spectrum, from public, private and parochial schools.
In Florida, AIDS-related illnesses are the ninth-leading cause of death forages 15-19, and the fifth-leading cause of death for ages 20-24
