The best weapon is condoms. I'd have to think many years of condoms is cheaper than operating on the penis.

Cut the infection rate in half, and you're still looking at millions dead.

Or the same about taking twice as long to get infected...

Or quicker, cos they think they're immune...

I wonder what de Cock thinks?
