The Body: Rick Sowadsky M.S.P.H., C.D.S, Answers to Safe Sex Questions
Jan 22, 1997
How do you believe you can look at an individual sexual practice as distinct from others? Before and during any sexual encounter potential partners can't be entirely certain what can happen. The forces at work are the same forces that have been at work since before we began to walk upright. We're internally programmed. The idea of safer sex interferes with that programming. We aren't internally programmed to be diligent 100 per cent of the time with never ever a single failure when it comes to sex. The concept of safer sex in contrary to the biological imperative that diversifies the gene pool. If people were using so called safer sex then the epidemic would've been wiped off the face of the planet. Has the birth rate decreased?
| Response from Mr. Sowadsky
Hi. Thank you for your question.
My role here is to educate people about HIV and other STD's, and to teach people how NOT to become infected. Safer sex has proven to reduce the incidence of HIV and other STD's. It is up to the individual to determine if they want to practice safer sex or not. I am not here to debate the role of safer sex in human evolution.
