Carnival! Brazil puts the knowledge back in carnal knowledge:
The Health Ministry launched its annual safe sex campaign on Sunday under the slogan "Good in bed means wearing a condom."
"We have to let people know the importance of prevention," Health Minister Jose Gomes Temporao said at an event in Rio.
States and municipalities in the world's largest Roman Catholic country will distribute 19.5 million free condoms for Carnival.
An education program will focus on alerting young women to the dangers of unprotected sex and encourage them to demand that their partners wear condoms.
Thousands of bandanas and temporary tattoos with safe sex slogans will also be handed out to revelers in the big cities.
Recife city also plans to distribute morning-after contraceptive pills -- a move that has angered the Roman Catholic Church hierarchy.
The church opposes Brazil's much lauded anti-AIDS campaign on the grounds that it promotes contraception.
Bishop Antonio Augusto Dias Duarte of the National Bishops Conference of Brazil said last week that while the church was not against people having fun in Carnival, the morning-after pill and condom campaign "will only serve to diminish inhibitions and encourage orgiastic behavior."
Ah, good government: incentivizing screwing, disincentivizing reproduction. At least in Russia the government promotes both.
