In honor of National Women’s and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day, Co-founders of The Red Pump Project, Karyn and Luvvie, decided to present an event around several U.S. cities. The Red Pump Project is a nonprofit organization that raises awareness about the impact of HIV/AIDS on women and girls.
To commemorate this day, I attended Cupcakes and Condoms, hosted by the Atlanta ambassador, Skyy Banks. We spent our afternoon mingling, chatting about sexual health and, of course, eating cupcakes.
Rockin’ the red pump.
This woman right here…candid, to say the least. From the moment I walked into the room and heard her voice, I knew that she was someone special. Sexual health educator, Ms. Nyrobi Moss, spoke about safe sexual practices, prevention and a sprinkling of relationships advice. Not to mention the “tongue in cheek” tutorial that cannot be televised, or blogged. Lol.
On talking to your partner about their status:
There’s a very big difference between secrecy and privacy.
Conversations go deeper than just condoms. Ask the questions you need to.
Relationships are hard work. Easy to get into and harder to maintain.
Everyone you are dating either magnifies or reflects something you have going on.
Men have sex with their egos. Condoms are supposed to fit.
Sex costs on five different levels: emotionally, spiritually, financially, psychologically, and physically.
If we could reach our own g-spots, partners would be obsolete.
Bigger is not always better. Get someone who fits you.
And because this is just a damn good quote:
All d*ck ain’t good d*ck and all p*ssy ain’t good p*ssy.
“Every 47 minutes, a woman will be diagnosed with HIV in the United States. That’s why we #RocktheRedPump.”
