Brazilian Health Minister Urges More Sex to Prevent Disease
April 28, 2010
(ChattahBox)—Fazendo sexo, fazendo amor, tendo relações sexuais; it all boils down to the same advice from a Brazilian health minister— sex and lots of it. During Health Minister Jose Gomes Temporao’s campaign to prevent high blood pressure, he recommended regular vigorous exercise as a preventative measure, including sex and dancing.
High blood pressure is actually a serious health problem in Brazil, affecting about a quarter of the population. “People need to be active. A weekend football game must not be the only physical activity for a Brazilian. Adults need to do exercise: walk, dance and have safe sex,” said Temporao.
And in case there was any misunderstanding abut his sextytime prescription, Temporao purposely singled out sex, as a highly recommended form of exercise.
“It’s not a joke. It’s serious. Having regular physical exercises also means sex, always with protection of course,” he said.
Fazendo sexo for all! Now, that’s a health prescription that’s easy to follow.
