South Africa: Condoms Star in a Sex Film With a Message

October 20, 2010

Filming of South Africa's first all-black pornographic movie has been completed, and condoms have a starring role. Tau Morena said the film -- entitled "Mapona," or "naked" in the Sotho language -- has "a gentle message about safe sex" because many younger people in the nation still have a "negative attitude towards condoms." The entire cast was tested for HIV before production began, and the male actors are shown using condoms. Morena said the cast members were volunteers who answered an audition call on a sex website that targets the country's growing black professional class.
