stone bridge posted a topic in News4 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT HAVING SEX WHEN YOU’RE HIV POSITIVE HIV CERTAINLY COMPLICATES SEX, BUT IF YOU TAKE THE RIGHT PRECAUTIONS, THERE’S NO REASON WHY HIV-POSITIVE WOMEN CAN’T ENJOY A HEALTHY SEX LIFE WITHOUT PASSING ON THE VIRUS. Here’s what you need to know: 1. Be honest with your partner The first things you need to consider are “issues of disclosure – how to protect your partner and assess their HIV status, plus what to do if things go wrong,” says Dr Francois Venter, deputy director at Wits Reproductive Health and HIV Institute and associate professor in the Department of Medicine at Wits University. These need to be tackled before you find yourself in the moment so you can approach them with careful thought. “Plan how to have the conversation, negotiate safe sex and encourage your partner to get tested. And have a handy plan B in place in case there’s a condom break, such as taking post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP), which prevents HIV transmission,” says Dr Venter. 2. Use condoms – they work There are a lot of myths around condoms not being safe enough to protect against HIV transmission. But if used correctly, and if they don’t burst or come off, they’re 100% safe. Unfortunately, they occasionally slip or tear, in which case a small risk is present and it’s advised to get PEP from your doctor or clinic. Risk also increases during your period. 3. Stick to your treatment With the advent of safe and effective antiretrovirals, your health returns to normal and your ability to pass on the virus is reduced almost to zero. So, accidents with condoms, or anything else, are much less likely to have consequences for your partner. 4. 0ral sex is low risk for passing on HIV Dr Venter says, “You’ve got a bigger risk of getting struck by lightning than getting HIV from 0ral sex.” However, you can still catch other STIs from unprotected 0ral sex, so proceed with caution.

bobdiva posted a topic in CelebritiesIt is no longer news that actress Funke Akindele has been listed among the full cast of the “Avengers: Infinity War” on IMDb as a member of Dora Milaje. However, the actress is yet to confirm or deny the story even though she and her publicist have been reached for a statement, that notwithstanding, Nigerians have already taken to Twitter to express their excitement. “Avengers: Infinity War” is the most anticipated movie of 2018, according to IMDB, and features Akindele alongside Marvel characters such as Black P@nther, Captain America, Iron Man, Black Widow among others. Here are seven things you should know about Akindele’s role in the movie. 1. The Dora Milaje (pronounced dora-meh-LAH-shay) is translated in English as “Adored Ones” 2. In the comics, the Dora Milaje are the personal bodyguards of the Black P@nther, recruited from every tribe of Wakanda. 3. As an ancient tribal tradition, the Dora Milaje are assembled as potential queens for an unmarried king. This is to maintain unity in Wakanda by ensuring the possibility of the king selecting a wife from any of the 18 tribes in the kingdom. 4. It’s customary for the Dora Milaje to shave their heads and have tribal markings. In 2017, Akindele shaved her head. It could be for the role, or not. 5. While most of the Dora Milaje are nameless, several like Okoye (played by Dania Gurira) Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o) and Queen Divine Justice are the most prominent. 6. They are the most accomplished female fighting team in the Marvel Universe. With ease, they fought the master Russian assassin Black Widow and almost defeated Storm. 7.
