Actress Sharon Stone has lashed out at accusations Basic Instinct 2 encourages sexual recklessness and contradicts her AIDS activist message. The star, who reprises her role as Catherine Trammell in the sequel, is featured in several sexually explicit scenes, including an orgy. She says, "What does that (being an AIDS activist) have to do with my film? Nothing. "I'm playing a sociopath. I also have lots of thoughts about guns, but if I was playing a bank robber I'd have one. "You play the characters that you're in and you play them fully and completely." She adds, "I'm glad that I'm having an effect. (If) you see me and think I should put on a condom and be responsible about sex."
