5 Things Every Black Woman Should Do on Dec. 1 (World AIDS Day)

2. Commit to Condoms

Unless you can be 100 percent certain that the man you are having sex with has tested negative for the HIV virus (and has never subsequently had unprotected sex with even one other person, or used IV drugs), you should be using a condom every time you have sex.

This is a touchy subject for women in relationships that they believe to be monogamous, but please know that there are plenty of dead black women who didn’t want to offend their partner by insisting he wear a condom.

Remember that most black women with HIV/AIDS contracted it from heterosexual sex with an infected black man. The virus cannot read a marriage license, and it does not care if you are faithful to your boyfriend. A condom is not an insult to your sex partner — it is a symbol that you love yourself enough to stay HIV-free.
