Bangkok Tells Couples to Forgo Sex on Valentine’s Day

Bangkok city officials are urging young Thais to forgo sex on Valentine’s Day this weekend and visit temples instead, as a far better way to mark the day of love. Thailand has one of the highest teenage pregnancy rates in South East Asia, public health officials said. The February 14 celebrations are a popular Western import in tourist-friendly Thailand, but the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration is worried about teenagers making love. Media surveys have shown teenagers in Thailand pick Valentine’s Day as the perfect day to lose their virginity. “If kids really love each other, it’s better for them to go and free birds and fish or go to the temple,” said Pirapong Saicheua, an official of the city authority.
