Beautiful goodbye

Jack Frost finds special meaning in an Amanda Marshall song that speaks to him about his journey before and after HIV.

“In these days of no regrets I keep mine to myself And all the things we never said I can say for someone else And nothing lasts forever but we always try And I just can't help but wonder why We let it pass us by”  Beautiful Goodbye by Amanda Marshall, - such an amazing song. The lyrics, the music, it sends shivers down my spine.  My friends don’t understand my love for Amanda Marshall. They always laugh at me when one of her songs comes on my iPhone and I get uber-excited. She

Everyone has a past

Bob Leahy with an effective little video from the UK about HIV testing for gay men, with a difference.

Everyone has a past

We like this video. It’s different and not at all preachy. And let’s face it, when was the last time you saw an HIV prevention video that actually made you smile?.Plus the subtly placed messages at the end like “HIV treatments have never been better”, “Get tested – for him, for you, for the community” and “Regular testing means peace of mind” are spot on. It’s brought to you by the award winning MESMAC, a community-based agency that provides social well-being sexual and m

Two young women born with HIV make a video about the advances in treatment, having babies and where they are today.

Women talking about being HIV-positive

From: Connected Health Solutions, Inc.   While recent advances in the treatment of HIV have opened up new possibilities for families, stereotypes and misconceptions still abound. According to the Centers for Disease Control, an HIV positive mother who is not being treated for her HIV during pregnancy, labor, or delivery has a 25% chance (1 in 4) of passing the virus to her baby. However, women with HIV who take antiretroviral medication during pregnancy as recommended can reduce the risk

Get it on –- with condoms

It’s back to the basics for this winning New Zealand HIV prevention campaign which stresses condom use and tells us why with sexy pictures and videos.

Get it on –- with condoms

We don’t see as many condom-based campaigns, once the mainstay of HIV prevention, as we once did. Often we’ve gone off in different directions, like focussing on the social determinants of health to affect, hopefully, behavioural changes, or more recently, test and treat strategies which fall under the ubiquitous Treatment as Prevention (TasP)  banner.  But even TasP supporters like myself acknowledge the important place of condoms, so we’ll need to see today’s type of campaign for s

Thirteen reasons why I made ‘The Key’

Guest Magpie Suddenly made a music video supporting negative guys taking PrEP to prevent HIV, with a powerful message about stigma: “Taking Truvada as PrEP doesn’t make someone a whore.” Here is the video and Magpie’s explanation of why he made it.

Thirteen reasons why I made ‘The Key’

1.  Because I was possessed by a demon.  And because I was pregnant for 22 months with its child.  That’s why I made ‘THE KEY.’  2.  Last week, a young friend of mine started PrEP.   He's 24 and heard about it online, has good health insurance, so has it covered.  He told me the news as we were catching up after a recent sex party we were at together.  His news shocked me. And not because he started PrEP.  The shocking part was that none of his peers believed him when h

Erotic touch

From Australia comes underwear that makes your erogenous zones tingle, with the help of your partner’s smart phone.

Erotic touch

It's all about touch over the internet.  Connect while you are apart. Says the manufacturer of  Fundawear “we positioned the sensors right on the money”  and adds “ way more fun than angry birds>’ Watch the video – the two actors are quite charming –and I think you’ll find it pretty self explanatory about how this vibrating underwear works, but there are two other videos you can see on YouTube which will give you an idea of the technology and how the garments are construct

Judging the judging

Wayne Bristow reviews the TV singing competitions – and picks this year’s winner of American Idol!

Judging the judging

Last September I wrote a piece on the talent shows I had been watching - XFactor and America’s Got Talent. I mentioned that I was also following the British and Aussie versions on YouTube and preferred them over the American versions. I still feel that way. The talent is just so different. Many of the contestants bring something unique, distinct voices. The “diva” factor is rarely seen, it doesn’t end up a huge screamfest.  One of the biggest problems I have with the American ver
