SEX is not equal to LOVE:  At the end of the day we all are seeking love.  While sex is the most physically intimate experiences two people can share, it does not equal love.

Social Media is spreading Sex Addiction and HIV:  With Facebook, apps such as Jack'd and Grindr and websites where anonymous sex is so easily accessible and promoted, sex addiction and HIV are on the rise and no one is talking about the role social media plays in this growing epidemic.
