An AIDS awarebess campaign at a Turkish university has proven upsetting to the conservative National Student Union(MTTB) which believes any form of protection against a sexual activity that might result in disease is simply a form of encouraging youth to become promiscuous. The AIDs campaign featured distribution of condoms. According to the MTTB, “the way to avoid AIDs is not through condoms. It is through moral development.”
MTTB is convinced educating youth concerning sexual conduct translates into telling “our young brothers and sisters they can have sex without any setbacks.” The MTTB solution is simple: get people married. Of course, that assumption is that those who are married will never engage in sex with someone other than their fellow spouse. An interesting hypothesis. I wonder if there is evidence in Turkey that those married never have sex with someone else?
