July 25, 2011

Zimbabwean Senator Sithembile Mlothshwa has suggested that scientists "look into the issue of trying to inject men with a substance that will make them lose appetite" for sex. "I want to contribute by saying all the other avenues have been looked into and the only avenue left is for us parliamentarians to decide or suggest reducing the appetite of men and their insatiable greed for women," Mlothshwa told fellow lawamkers during a debate on HIV/AIDS drug access. Zimbabwe has one of the world's worst HIV/AIDS epidemics, and extra-marital relationships are a primary driver of infections there.
