This chapter examines the book Pourquoi moi? Confession d'une jeune femme d'aujourd'hui which was written by a French woman called Juliette who contracted AIDS in France in the 1980s. It explains that the book provides a graphic account of Juliette's entire sexual history and suggests that her sexual history is a real nightmare for any epidemiologist studying her case history. It also contends that the story was framed s a confession to promote the idea of women as mothers and it highlights the role of Catholicism in French constructions of the nationality/sexuality relationship.

Keywords:   AIDS, France, sexual history, women as mothers, Catholicism, nationality/sexuality relationship
