This ad is sooo wrong on so many levels.
Rape can lead to pregnancies and STDs.
Rape can lead to incurable infections like HIV/AIDS.
That may be manageable to some, but it can still be a death sentence.
There are no guarantees as to how the virus will affect individuals.
Rapists are not forced by law to know or reveal their HIV-status, and it's up to the victim to request prophylactic doses of ARVs in an attempt to
prevent sero-conversion, which can have side-effects.
Rape and HIV are concurrent issues in South Africa.
Rape with a condom is often not classed as rape in some countries, merely as sexual assault.
In SA both men and women can be raped, although previously male rape was regarded as sexual assault (a lesser crime).
Whoever made this ad had obviously never been raped, or experienced the severe mental torture and fear of AIDS.
I thought I'd add that, whatever the veracity of the link, because it's a topical issue.
