(NYT39) MONZE, Zambia -- May 10, 2005 -- MALAWI-AIDS-2 -- Paulina Bubala in her corn field near Monze, Zambia, on Feb. 25, 2005. When Bubala's husband died in 1996, she underwent the ritual known as sexual cleansing: sex between the widow and one of her husband's relatives, to break the bond with his spirit and, it is said, save her and the rest of the village from insanity or disease.
