SAVE sex for the one you love

Published:Friday | February 13, 2015 | 12:00 AM


As Safe Sex Week comes to a close, we continue to encourage all our young Jamaican citizens to value the power of their Vs.

The campaigns proliferated this week and throughout the year are more useful if they would encourage young people to SAVE sex until they are married, and then SAVE sex only for their partner, remaining faithful to their spouses thereafter.

Abstinence will take care of unwanted pregnancies. Abstinence will significantly lessen the risk of sexually transmitted infections. As Jamaica is now on the brink of eliminating mother-to-child transmission of HIV, let us embark on another rewarding feat! Ending young-person-to-young-person transmission of HIV, too! It is possible if we would only SAVE sex.

This Valentine's Day, add value to your body, add value to your special someone. SAVE SEX. You can do it!
