Injection to curb sexual appetite

INJECTION: Senator has called for a substance to reduce a man's sexual appetite

A SENATOR in Zimbabwe has asked scientists to develop a substance to help curb a man’s sexual appetite in a bid to stop the spreading of HIV and AIDS.

Senator Sithembile Mlotshwa told members of Parliament’s upper house that scientists should "look into the issue of trying to inject men with a substance that will make them lose appetite."

"I want to contribute by saying all the other avenues have been looked into and the only avenue left is for us parliamentarians to decide or suggest reducing the appetite of men and their insatiable greed for women," he said.

Zimbabwe is one of the countries worst affected by the HIV/AIDS pandemic although the rate of infection has gone down.

Extra-marital relationships are among the key factors spreading the pandemic. It is hoped that, if developed, this injection could reduce a man’s sexual appetite to just once a month.
