Title: Sex, Power and Taboo: Gender and HIV in the Caribbean and Beyond
Author: Mohammed, Patricia
Abstract: Everyone knows that sex sells. This is the cliché and the verity that is used by all advertisers, filmmakers and book publishers, academic and non- academic alike. But what happens when sex and death have become bedfellows that are too close for comfort. The editors of the book, Sex, Power and Taboo: Gender and HIV in the Caribbean and Beyond, point not only to the global problem that the spread of HIV and AIDS has wrought on sexual pleasure and reproduction of human life, but to the specific ways in which they affect the populations of the Caribbean. It is estimated that 27,000 people in the Caribbean became infected with HIV in 2006, that youth comprises the fastest growing population to be infected, and that 51% of the adult population living with AIDS are women
