Transcript Condoms Can Be Fun Extolling the virtues of safe sex Representatives from the AIDS Foundation-Houston were in Oberholtzer Hall on March 13 to inform UH residents about safe sex. Bart Lowser, the outreach coordinator of the foundation, Deidre Martin and David Holland, volunteers, warned a group of residents about HIV (Human Immundo-deficiency Virus), AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome), and extolled the virtues of safe sex. A problem in stopping the disease arises because many people look for sickness in a person when worrying about AIDS. By the time a person has AIDS, he or she may have passed the virus on to many people without knowing of the infection, he said. "AIDS is the last stage in the HIV illness," Loeser said. HIV does not show up in the blood stream until at least three months after infection, when the antibodies reduced by the body are prevalent. AIDS is the name given when one of the 26 opportunistic infections are present in a person who is HIV- positive, he said. Loeser said that because the disease does not show up for so many years, it is believed homosexuals began contracting the then-unnamed disease in the mid-1970s. Before the virus was given its current name, it was referred to as Gay-Related Immune Deficiency, or GRID. The stigma of the disease as being a "gay disease" has stuck since then, although heterosexuals and drug users have contracted it. Loeser said the virus is not easy to get, as it must be transmitted through blood. Regular intercourse and oral sex, under normal circumstances, are relatively safe. He said there have been only seven or eight cases of the disease being transmitted through oral sex. The body fluids containing the highest amounts of the virus are blood and semen, with a smaller amount being found in vaginal fluids. Loeser told the students of his "golden rule" in determining the safety of an activity. "How can blood or semen, or to a lesser degree, vaginal fliuds, get into your bloodstream?" he asked. He said women are at a higher risk than men since cuts or tears in the vaginal walls can let infected semen into the bloodstream. The riskiest activity is anal sex, since the rectum walls are much thinner than the vaginal walls, and pen etration is more likely to tear the walls, he sid. The risk from oral sex comes from any cuts or abrasions in the mouth through which infected fluids may enter the bloodstream. Loeser said the mouth is a very hostile environment for viruses, although that does not eliminate the risk completely. Loeser said people should not perform fellatio to the point of ejaculation although the virus is present in pre-semenal fluids. As far as cunnilingus, a producl called a dental dam, can be used. A dental dam is a latex square placec over the vagina that can protect the mouth from viruses. 46 RED*7APE
