Sex rarely makes the news in Brazil's conservative Northeast until a small town declared an official Orgasm Day on Monday.

Espertantina Mayor Felipe Santolia endorsed the May 9 holiday, which he said was intended to improve relationships between married couples.

"We're celebrating orgasm in all its senses. There's even a panel discussion on premature ejaculation.

Santolia said the remote town of 38,000 people has been unofficially celebrating orgasm day for years, but that the town's former mayor had vetoed a bill making it an official municipal holiday.

In other news, I have decided to spend May 9 in Espertantina, Brazil.

I hear it's a lovely g-sp - um, I mean, vacation spot.

In Espartantina, be careful when someone tells you it's "Hump Day".

This is about as pagan as it gets. They're only one baby step away from building a stone phallus for the city to worship.
