Japan is one of the few industrialized nations in which AIDS is on the rise. Japan’s Ministry of Health, Labor, and Welfare reported that the number of new infections of HIV reached a record high in 2007.
As part of an AIDS awareness program, adult video broadcaster, Paradise TV, held their annual “24-Hour TV: Eroticism Saves the Earth” show. The show consisted of five men grabbing the breasts of an adult video actress for 1,000 yen.
Correct me if I’m wrong but, isn’t 1,000 yen about $9 USD? So, $45 is going towards AIDS research?
