Unless you’ve been living under a rock you’ve heard that Charlie Sheen came out on the Today show that he has been HIV positive for the past four years. Of course there are differing opinions on whether to feel bad for him or not, but at the end of day, it doesn’t really affect us….or does it?
Consider it took Charlie about one month before he found out that he was infected with HIV. Conservatively he was sleeping with two new girls a week and potentially NOT using protection. That’s about 10 girls that are at risk of being infected. These are probably party girls and potentially quite sexually active. Consider, on average, they are sleeping with one new guy a month. Assuming they weren’t using protection with Charlie, it’s possible they weren’t using it with other partners as well. So in two months we have 20 infected people. The guys they are sleeping with are most likely good looking themselves as they are sleeping with the same caliber girls as Charlie Sheen. Therefore, they are sleeping with more girls than the average guy, conceivably around one new partner a month. After three months we potentially have 40 newly infected people. After four months, 80, after five months, 160 and so on and so on. After 28 months, a little more than half the time since he’s been diagnosed, 1.3 Billion people could be at risk because of Charlie Sheen. That’s almost a quarter of the World’s population.
Talk about Tiger Blood. Thanks for nothing Wild Thing. Stay safe everybody.
