Right now St. Lucia has a recorded 600 plus HIV/AIDS cases. Young persons, especially pre-teens are having unprotected sex. St Lucian NGO The AIDS Action foundation is calling for a national dialogue on the distribution of condoms in schools.

My two cents: Well I think the main problem the region faces when it comes to sex is our attitudes and mentality. We just like to do things under cover, behind the scenes, in secret, under the table, however you want to label it. So I think persons in the communities need to be honest with themselves. Another thing we have is pride and we do not like change. So we continue with this farce, oh my country is conservative...ray, ray, ray, rah, rah, rah. Conservative why? cause we say good morning to people we pass on the road? (which we don't really do). But we know a lot of grown men and politicians having sexual relations with underage children and we do nothing about it. Oh yeah we will gossip about how fast the girl is, or how aye aye he married you know...but that's where it ends.

We need to be less romantic and more results oriented. Give them the condoms man. And two years down the road tell me what are the effects. Let me put it this way. Those kids gonna go out there and have sex whether you offer them condom or not. And if they are having sex with an adult then he/or she can provide it. I just would like them to promote sex education at the same time. So that we have less results like the young woman who was a virgin yet tested positive for HIV from having anal sex, cause she only though you got HIV/AIDS from vaginal sex.

What do you think???
