Description

In this recording of Boston's Other Voice, which aired on March 12, 1989, host Peter Stickel interviews Dennis James, a physician assistant at Fenway Community Health, about safer sex. The term safer sex is used, instead of safe sex, to infer that sex cannot be 100% safe, but can be done more safely. James identifies some of the ways that HIV and AIDS can be transmitted, including oral sex and sexual intercourse, and discusses various barrier protections. He also brings up issues of denial, trust, and communication in relationships.
