Vietnam to offer 'healthy sex' website

Coupling guides for couples

The Vietnamese government has decided to combat the country's rising divorce and abortion rates and "rampant prostitution" by offering citizens the chance to download educational "healthy sexual intercourse" movies from the internet, Reuters reports.

Vietnam normally takes a dim view of web smut, and recently ordered net cafes to install porn-blocking software on their computers. At the same time, the country boasts an annual abortion rate of 1.4 million among the population of 83 million - largely due to a lack of sex education and teenagers' ignorance of contraception.

Accordingly, Khuat Thu Hong, Deputy Director of the Institute for Social Development, announced the launch of an "orthodox sex website" aimed at setting couples back on the straight and narrow. He did, however, tell the Vietnam News that any material offered on the site would be "only educational", which presumably means guides on how to put a condom on a banana and little else. ®
