    Hi JC

    These are great, the second one was especially sweet, though I had to laugh at the muscle man working the guys legs like a water pump! Hahaha!

    Anyway, funny and cute it may be, but they do send out a very true message. Unfortunately AIDS is out there, but that doesn’t mean we have to stop living our lives in case something happens. If that was the case then there would be no point getting out of bed because there might just be a chance you fall down the stairs or get run over by a bus when you step out in the street. It’s the same with AIDS, we can still enjoy ourselves but take the necessary precautions, take care of ourselves and each other and offer support to those who need it.

    LOTS of LOVE

    Hey JC!

    These are awesome comercials. Total crack ups!.

    Australian television would never dare show something like that here, if they did the catholic church would freak.

    But it’s great to see some countries are taking safe sex ads seriously and promoting them in a way that appeals to the younger generation, perhaps more countries should tear a leaf out of their book.

    I don’t know what it’s like for ny other country so I can’t speak on their behalf, but in Australia television commercials are so foucused on Breast Cancer, Cancer in Children, Cervical Cancer, Skin Cancer that HIV/AIDS seems to be forgotten about. In Australia over the last 12 months statistics show that there has been an increase in HIV infection by 41%, the year before it was 18%. Huge numbers that our current governing administration has turned a blind eye too. The AIDS organizations in this country get very little funding therefore cannot afford the millions of dollars needed to make commercials and have them played on television. Sexual education in school’s is at it’s worst in Australia and the talk of safe sex practises in schools is unheard off and if it is, parent groups are up in arms.

    Hence why the increase of infection within Australia is so high as it is mainly age groups of 16 – 25 year old boys and men who are contracting the virus.

    It’s a shame that in this day and age that a country like Australia, thinks that if the problem isn’t spoken about, it’s not there, again hence why so many young people are infected as they haven’t been educated on the subject properly.

    I just hope things are much better in other countries.

    Sorry for being political on your Blog and even moving away from the actuall topic of your post. But I am big on HIV treatments and care for anyone with HIV/AIDS within my community and do a lot of work as a volunteer to try and make things better for everyone.

    Big Hugz!

    Hey Reikro and Manny. It’s funny that it didn’t really dawn on me that the ads were about AIDS prevention. I mean, I saw the condoms but just assumed the message was more about general safe sex rather than AIDS prevention specifically.

    AIDS prevention adverts in the USA are a LOT more serious. Anytime AIDS is mentioned, they only ever talk about the scariness of the disease. TV and print spots about it can NEVER EVER EVER depict sex or sexiness. So yeah, you can see why it didnt click in my mind that these were AIDS prevention spots.

    Those are some really scary statistics about Australia. The government really needs to do something about that.

    See, I grew up in the 80s and here in the US, 80s children are scared of only 2 things: Crack and AIDS. We got a LOT of education on HIV and Crack growing up.

    Hey JC

    24 years ago, AIDS was something to be scared of. These days with the advances in medication people are now having 2 or 3 tablets a day. The chances nowadays of a person passing away from an AIDS related illness are the people who don’t know they have it and long term sufferes who have had it for over 20 years. There are some acceptions though. If you look after yourself and take your meds as your Doctor advises, you can live a full healthy life. These days a healthy person with HIV is more than likely to die from getting hit by a car or bus than anything else.

    Being scared of AIDS is good, it shows awareness, but people with HIV/AIDS shouldn’t be treated as Lepors, something I see everyday.

    Crack though is an entirley different kettle of fish!

    Big Hugz!

    Hi! Great blog!
    I’d like to do a link sharing,
    please visit my blog: zona-erogena.blogspot.com

    Thanks in advance

    Hey Manny- Yeah, I’m definetely not “scared–” at least not anymore. I guess the correct choice of words would be that I’m extremely “aware” of std prevention and I guess “knowledgeable” of stds themselves. But that probably also comes from my being a perv and learning everythin I possibly could about sex before I was 10 years old– haha.

    I remember when my aunt and uncle both died within weeks of each other due to illnesses related to HIV complications. Everyone in my family would say “oh it was pnemonia” and my smart-alek 10 yr. old ass was always like, “yeah right.”

    Hey, Sleegon, I added your blog. Thanks for the plug! Oh, and I love KOF as well. I need to do a Ralf + Clark fan-art soon…

    Hey JC,

    I am so sorry to hear about you Aunt & Uncle, it couldn’t have been easy.

    In the past 23 years that I have been out on the Gay scene in Sydney, I was 14 years old when I was hitting the bars & clubs, I have gone to 225 funerals of friends who died of complications and buried my second boyfriend Robbie who died in his sleep with his head on my chest also from complications.

    So I guess you can say that I have been around it all of my adult life and maybe that is why these days I tend to focus more of my time helping others out, as apposed to helping make people famous which is what I do for work.

    One day there will be a cure, and it will be soon, I look at it like a huge mathematics problem, when the maths has been figured out you get your answer. But I know that no matter where I am or where I go, all my friends that have passed over are all happy and with me and they are all dancing to “Always On My MInd” by the Pet Shop Boys, under the big mirror ball in the sky.
