Condoms Might Not Be Sexy, But Neither Is HIV!

So I was having a quick look through  The Gold Coast Bulletin recently,  and an old story that I was familiar with was mentioned once again. This story is one of  Zimbabwe born circus acrobat, Godfrey Zaburoni, who was committed on one charge of acts intending to cause grievous bodily harm after police allege he knowingly transmitted the HIV virus to a former Gold Coast girlfriend. This story does not just touch my heart because as a Sexologist, the reduction of HIV transmission is something I hope for, but because I once knew Godfrey and his former Gold Coast girlfriend. I did not know them well, nor am I still close to them, but once upon a time I knew them well enough to know their relationship, how happy they were, how sweet he was to her and how she never doubted his love or if she could trust him….

Sex Does Not Sell

Most people think sex sells. But in actual fact, it’s not sex, it’s words, things and actions that might imply that sex is involved.  The topic sometimes has to be implied without exactly being mentioned. I am experiencing that being a Sexologist can catch people’s attention. They want comments, articles, and answers, all to do with the topic of sex. But what intrigues me most is that even though my profession is accepted in the wider community, the word SEX sometimes is still not. Why do we fear those 3 letters? A lot of us are doing it, many of us think about it, it’s how we all got here, so why can’t we all say it?   Growing up many children and teens are taught words to replace the word sex. Special cuddles, nookie, root, doing it, going all the way, getting busy, the horizontal dance, making love, getting…
