Dire Warning!

“We’re seeing something new with these older, heterosexual, Australian-based men with

high disposable incomes putting themselves at incredible risk with unprotected sex,

often after entertaining and drinking,” Dr Russell said.

“This cluster could just be the beginning of a very large outbreak,” he said. “It

indicates the HIV epidemic in Papua New Guinea is becoming more generalised,

 which puts these men at greater risk, and in that climate the numbers

 will only rise.”

    I’ve no argument with older men getting a bit, and there’s no fool like an old fool, but you would think that when they are cutting off a slice they would, at least, wear gloves!

    I remember the character, Bob, in “Sepik Blu Longpela Muruk” and his method of preventing VD. I wonder how effective it would be in our HIV era. The extract following will serve to remind other readers of what I mean:
    ‘This was a game only for Bob and the young women. Bob always maintained that he had always been free from venereal disease and this he put down to a fool-proof method of prevention. Whether in the cultural centres of Europe, the Casbah of North Africa, the ritzy cities of anywhere and the jungles of Papua New Guinea, Bob always followed his method of prevention, and he said it had worked.

    ‘In the interests of medical science this method should now be recorded. It is basically very simple and no one can tell it better than Bob: “After intercourse allow the pressure of urine to build up in the bladder and hold the penis and suddenly piss it all out, while washing the ‘old boy’ at the same time. It always works.”

    ‘It is not known if Bob ever contemplated working on this and submitting it to The “Lancet” for publication, though if he had, he might have saved countless young gallants from trouble.’
