Grindr Blamed by Hong Kong AIDS Group for Rising HIV Cases

AIDS Concern, an HIV awareness group in Hong Kong, claims Grindr, a gay dating mobile app, is contributing to the rise in new HIV cases in the city among men who have sex with men, China Daily reports. From April to June, 131 new HIV cases were diagnosed, which is the highest quarterly total since record-keeping started in 1984. The department of health is concerned that total new HIV cases in 2012 could surpass 500, which would be a first. The awareness group also blamed the HIV increase on a lack of sex education in schools.

You know, if it's not one website, it's another; or it's bathhouses; or private sex parties, clubs, video booth stores, public restrooms; or it's cruising in the local park. Surprise! Guys want to have sex with guys! When you close one door, lo and behold, guys will find another! So, instead of going after the websites, the clubs, etc.,(and invading peoples' LIVES!) why not get back to the basics. Oh yeah, "sex education is lacking." Maybe that should be more than the afterthought!
