Human Rights Watch <firstname.lastname@example.org> In response to a query from a South African doctor working in this area, I am looking for references for discussion of the belief that sex with a virgin will cure AIDS -- apparently implicated in the appalling stories of rape of infants in S Africa, among other places. I turned up a couple of postings from 1997 on this matter when searching the H-NET site, but none had serious academic references. Any developments since then?
