Sex, chastity and the fight against AIDS among young Africans

61

The Catholic University of Eastern Africa, in Kenya, hosted last week a crowded conference on sex, a true sexual “education”, whose theme was chastity and self-management.

Organised among others, by the African Organization for Families, by the National Council for the control of AIDS (a governmental body) and by the Archdiocese of Nairobi, the Conference was crowded with young people.

The discussion was about the importance of purityself-management and self-control, self-discipline, and it was an occasion to relaunch and discuss family values: everything in a climate of serenity and beautywithout demonising sex – on the contrary rediscovering that certain values serve not only to ensure a serene sexual life, but in general a life in peace with oneself and with others even in contexts other than those of sex.

The event was significantly organised near the day of S Valentine and was attended by many engaged couples.

There were talks about “theology of the body”, about sexual revolution, about human and feminine dignity, about AIDS and self-realization in life and in the relationships of couple.

On this occasion, it was also possible to freely carry out a test for HIV free of cost and to have private consultancy on the issue.

The youth also spoke of the cultural imperialism and of the new colonialism of western countries which seek to impose even in Africa the agenda of “sexual and reproductive rights” and of the porn-pandemic that infects modern societies.

Even the reactions observed on the social media testify the great success of the meeting of the African youth.
