I am in public health school because I am interested in advocating for safe sex practices and concerned about USA’s stigmatization of it. Now, in my third semester of school I finally get down and dirty and talk about sex. Today I had my first class of “Safer Sex in the City” and it was awesome. Our first class assignment was to begin reading Elizabeth Pisani’s book “The Wisdom of Whores: Bureaucrats, Brothels, and the Business of AIDS”. Although I’ve only read three chapters, I am really impressed with Pisani. She is blunt. No messing around. I recommend reading the book and to convince you I’m posting her talk on TED.
So get to it! Go read it!
