"It is true, and thus the question of whether it is sad or happy has no meaning whatever."
Bernhard Schlink

The First African Conference on Sexual Health and Rights has announced its priorities, including education, prevention and breaking of taboos. And breaking up the sex slave trade. This is a Good Thing, but I always am amazed people need to have conferences to figure basic shit like this out.

But now the bad news: Studies of Human Papilloma Virus (HPV), best known for being a sexually transmitted cause of cervical cancer, seems to also cause oral cancer. As in, from oral sex. D'oh!

But there is good news: Scientists have found a protein, TRIM5-alpha, in monkeys which blocks HIV infection. So this is a veryveryvery good sign.
