Russian Politician Wants to Restrict Sex?
Russian Politician Wants to Restrict Sex?

The leader of the Russia’s Liberal Democratic Party said he wants to impose
regulations on excessive eating, smoking and sex. Vladimir Zhirinovsky said in a
radio interview, “We need eating restrictions. Our people are overfed and too
fat. Sex should also be restricted to one time per quarter through issuing
licenses, quotas or coupons. People have too much sex, they eat, smoke and drink
too much and die 20 years earlier. Everywhere — in Europe, America or Japan –
they live longer. Why should we perish?” He also said he wants to restrict
smoking, explaining, “We need a different formula. Smoking is to be banned
everywhere but in your own car if you close all the windows and stay there alone
as well as in your own apartment if there is nobody else there. Shut all the
windows and get yourself poisoned.” The lower house of Parliament approved the
bill on Tuesday (February 12th) and next week it goes to the upper house, where
it is expected to pass. (Washington Post)
