The latest blog on the New Zealand AIDS Foundation’s Get It On! website suggests that the gays start engaging in some illegal sexual activities. They also suggest we “let it rip” when referring to condom use. Hmm.
The post, titled Summer Loving, talks about hot guys on the beaches — and uses a nicely bromantic picture of Ricky Martin and his step-brother half naked — as well as how to get it on in public. They suggest that we get it on outside but make sure we don’t “scare the straights” or that there are no kids around.
While sex outdoors may be fun, should a health organisation which receives millions in public funding be encouraging us to break the law and have “a fuck in a grove of trees by a beach”?
Maybe we’re a bit prudish, but it’s just giving the fundies more ammunition in their crusade to portray the gay agenda as perverted.
We do, however, love its inclusion of possibly the world’s worst simile: “Nothing like having fun on those hot sweaty nights when you both end up sizzling in bed like two bits of butter in a hot pan.” Have these guys tried sleeping in a bed with someone on a sweaty night? Not fun!
Also of note is their use of the term “let it rip” when discussing using condoms this summer — probably not the best choice of words when you really think about it.
Here’s hoping the NZAF’s new leadership puts a bit of ‘leader’ back in the ship and helps the arguably ill-engaged organisation avoid a few of the obvious faux pas.
Remember kids, if you do get it on out in the wilderness this summer, make sure you wrap it like a present!
