China Loves Condoms

china-flag-1.jpg
China isn’t fucking around when it comes to safe sex. The government has ordered all hotels, public showers and resorts to distribute free prophylactics. In addition to the rubbers, the communist government has printed a series of pamphlets on safer sex.

The recent order counts as just one of the government’s initiatives against HIV/AIDS, which long carried the so-called queer stigma. In June, bars and clubs were told to encourage safe sex.

There seems to be a trend in the Far East. In addition to China’s condom legislation, Hong Kong – the nation’s “special administrative region” – recently overturned archaic sodomy laws. The former British colony also just founded it’s first gay center.

      Not to be a downer, but shouldn’t free prophylactics be passed out in clubs and bars in addition to the hotels, resorts, and showers?

      This is, of course, ignoring the strong possibility that mostly foreigners would take advantage of the free condoms in the hotels and resorts, rather than Chinese citizens themselves.

      Maybe I’m wrong, though.
