A deep kiss is a complex olfactory exchange of chemicals, hormones and proteins and a way for us to gauge how virile, or even what state of health our potential partners may be in because mucous membranes inside the mouth are permeable to hormones such as testosterone, which our clever bodies can detect. Subconsciously we build a profile on the person that we are kissing as we analyse the chemicals in their mouth in our own oral laboratory.
Never judge a cock by its feathers. You can't tell if that strutting rooster has a sexually transmitted infection or HIV
Speaking on behalf of Minister Aaron Motsoaledi at Monday evening’s opening of the Top2Btm symposium in Cape Town, Dr. Yogan Pillay, Chief Director of Strategic Planning at the National Department of Health emphasised the need for an HIV strategy that is “much more nuanced and targeted.”
The Minister was due to open the three day symposium dedicated to the sexual health of men who have sex with men (MSM), but was unable to attend and sent Pillay in his stead.
Reading the Minister’s speech, Pillay noted: “Even though the Strategic Plan mentions men who have sex with men, we certainly haven’t done enough to protect this group”.
Health4Men will be hosting the fabulous film “The Skinny”, in both Cape Town and Johannesburg at the festival.
Please come and support OUT IN AFRICA and Health4Men.
