@sexylovetipsHIV People living with HIV have the right to sexual pleasure!
To mark World AIDS Day, Love Matters is launching sexylovetips for HIV, tweeting love and sex tips specially for people living with the virus that causes AIDS. And the first thought on our Twitter tip list is that sexual pleasure doesn’t have to stop just because you’re HIV positive.
The sexy love tweets for HIV cover topics ranging from talking to your partner about your HIV status to getting the maximum pleasure out of safer sex.
Love Matters launched sexylovetips on Twitter in October, and a growing band of followers now receive a daily dose of love, sex and relationship tips @sexylovetips. The HIV tweets are a spinoff aimed at anyone dealing with the HIV virus in their relationships.
World AIDS Day on 1 December each year is a worldwide opportunity to support people living with the HIV virus, unite in the fight against AIDS, and remember all those whose lives the disease has claimed.
There have been major advances in the fight against AIDS, the United Nations AIDS organisation UNAIDS reported in the run up to World AIDS Day.
The numbers of both new HIV infections and AIDS-related deaths are down. More than 6.6 million people living with the virus now have access to treatment.
"Upset and furious"
But the progress is under threat because of a worldwide drop in funding for the global response to the disease, UNAIDS warns. International spending to combat AIDS fell from US$8.7 billion in 2009 to US$7.6 billion in 2010.
The French virologist who jointly won a Nobel prize for discovering the HIV virus in 1983, Francoise Barre-Sinoussi, told the BBC that although she was pleased with the headway that has been made in tackling AIDS, she was “upset and furious” about the global cutbacks.
