AIDS is Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome. AIDS usually refers to infection with the HIV virus. It is a sexually transmitted disease, since HIV has the immune system as its main target, its weakening can lead to the onset of opportunistic diseases.

AIDS and zoophilia

The idea that the origin of the AIDS epidemic is linked to zoophilic relationships between man and monkey is particularly anchored in the collective imagination. It is, however, unfounded.

AIDS being a sexually transmitted disease, like syphilis, is the subject of a moral condemnation this belief stems from the idea that the outbreak of the epidemic would be linked to condemned sexual practices such as homosexuality or bestiality. The origin of the epidemic being undoubtedly African, it was also easy to believe that those responsible for the spread of the epidemic were the Africans to whom one could attribute wild or strange customs such as zoophilia. Likewise, it is common in Africa that the origin of the disease is also associated with the transgression of moral prohibitions in collective beliefs. These transgressions involve both zoophilia and homosexuality or so-called obscene sexual positions. This condemnation takes place in traditional educational education which distinguishes the pure and the impure but is also to be compared with the influence of Judeo-Christian values ​​after several centuries of evangelization in certain regions. Mirroring Western beliefs on the origin of the disease, popular discourse in Africa sometimes associates the origin of AIDS with the weakening of mores (or even their corruption) under foreign influence which refers to rumors sometimes developed around of zoophilia <ref> [http://www.jle.com/e-docs/00/03/5B/C5/article.md Robert Courtois, Etienne Mullet, Denis Malvy, "Approach to sexuality in Congo in the context of AIDS ", Cahiers d '

Many serious hypotheses about the onset of the AIDS epidemic actually suggest a transmission from the animal kingdom to humans of a virus that would have mutated. The origin of this epidemic could be attributed to a virus carried by the green monkeys. However, nothing indicates that a zoophilic report is at the origin of the contagion. For many diseases such as Ebola, there is transmission of the disease from monkeys to humans. This transmission mainly takes place by bite or other route depending on the mode of transmission of the virus (consumption of the animal for example).

But these situations remain exceptional. 'In most cases, viruses are species specific' . For example, we cannot infect a monkey with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and for laboratory analyzes we use a simian virus similar to HIV, the SIV which is modified for the experiments.

Recent research has made it possible to date the origin of the epidemic and in particular trace it back to the emergence of colonial towns in Cameroon at the end of the 19th century which allowed a one-off event of the disease to occur. man will find there a favorable ground for the emergence of an epidemic which subsequently became global.

AIDS prevention and zoophilia

'An HIV positive person cannot infect their animal companion during sexual intercourse.'

However, the practice of zoophilia is not exempt from the risk of transmission of sexually transmitted infections between men ( STI). This can occur under the specific conditions listed below:

  • 'Penetrations by the same animal of two successive partners'

If one of the two partners is HIV positive or has an STI, it could be transmitted to the other partner.

Do not forget that anal penetration is often a traumatic relationship (in particular with certain animals) and that the anal mucosa is particularly fragile. Very often micro-bleeding occurs and the penis of your animal partner will be a carrier of this vector of HIV transmission.

In some cases it may be possible to use condoms (yes, yes, it works for dogs too!). The simplest being to avoid two successive penetrations of the same animal on two different partners. Since the AIDS virus destroys itself in the open in a few minutes or in a hostile environment, it is reasonable to assume that the next day it will have been destroyed. A simple rinse with water may not be enough.

  • 'Penetrations on an animal by two successive partners'

The risk for HIV here is mainly linked to ejaculation or seminal fluid. Two partners successively entering an animal can thus transmit the HIV virus to each other.

To avoid HIV infection like other STIs, one of the partners can use a condom.

Miscellaneous

The HIV status of a partner is not visible. A screening test provides the serological status as of 2 months before the sample. People who are HIV positive but do not know their HIV status are at higher risk of transmitting the disease than a person who is treated.

If you are HIV positive you do not have to say your HIV status if you take the necessary precautions, but you have a responsibility (just like your HIV negative partner) to make sure your partner is not at risk of transmitting HIV. HIV.
