There’s a news story making its way through the Ghanaian media about a medical doctor who had sex with a senior high school student and infected him with HIV. The major legal issue is that they had sex when the boy in question was 15 and therefore under the age of consent.

Faced with the prospect of being alone, I guess most men would choose to marry a women who will stick with them. Sometimes gay relationships are just too heart-breaking.
I just became single again even though I’m not even sure if what I had would be considered a ‘relationship’ at all.
