India Giving Out Condoms at Porn Theaters

June 12, 2007

In Gujarat state in western India, volunteers distribute condoms outside 800 small theaters screening illegal pornographic films. Gujarat health officials say many watching the movies are from high-risk groups, such as migrant laborers or truck drivers, who spend a lot of time away from home and are vulnerable to casual or unsafe sex. "The migrant population will not stop watching pornographic movies or visiting sex workers," said H.K Anant, a health official in Gujarat's main city, Ahmedabad. "All we want them to do is to stop unsafe sex." Gujarat's many large industries employ more than 8 million migrant workers who come from neighboring states.
