LETTERS TO THE EDITOR; LIVING WITH AIDS

December 10, 1989
LEAD: Implicit in Eugene W. Feldman's letter concerning the "safeness" of safe sex is the belief that people with AIDS shouldn't have sex at all (Letters, Nov. 12, in response to "Fighting AIDS All the Way," by Larry Josephs, Oct. 8).

Implicit in Eugene W. Feldman's letter concerning the "safeness" of safe sex is the belief that people with AIDS shouldn't have sex at all (Letters, Nov. 12, in response to "Fighting AIDS All the Way," by Larry Josephs, Oct. 8).

That belief denies a basic human need. Those people with AIDS who will triumph over this disease are the ones who will insist on living as normal a life as possible. There are damned few absolutes in living with and fighting AIDS, but if it is assumed that everyone carries the HIV-virus, risks can be minimized, and all reasonable precautions can be taken.

Congratulations, not condemnation, should greet Larry Josephs' decision to continue being a sexual person. DAVID LACAILLADE Los Angeles
