What are 10 reasons why AIDS prevention advocates don't experiment, don't even try the strategy of "BEFORE we have sex let's get tested TOGETHER for A VARIETY of STDs then make an informed decision."?

1. Obviously, I may not end up not having sex.
. The clinic's not open at 2am.
. There's no clinic in the middle of the park.
. There's no clinic in the back of my van.
. The free testing center won't take my credit card.
. You can get HIV from testing.
. I can tell if somebody has AIDS.
. I'm an sex educator. I know what works.
. There're no studies but I'm sure it doesn't work.
. I'm already HIV positive, thank you, whoever.
