Someone told me in the recent past that Brazil and in particular Rio, wished to clean up their 'sexy' reputation as it gave foriegners the impression that Brazil is full of sex crazed people, especially the women. Not sure that President Lula'sreinforcement of theBrazil Health minister's call to have sex for better health (http://en.mercopress.com/2010/04/29/more-sex-to-combat-high-blood-pressure-recommends-brazilian-minister) will help that reputation much. Couple that with my earlier post 'Sexy Brazilian Males Need Help!', this is a country where sex appears to be a national obsession.
