Sailor Moon?s new mission is to promote safe sex. Her creator, Naoko Takeuchi, has teamed up with Japan’s Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare for this aim. Together, they promote prevention and detection of sexually transmitted infections.
Their campaign is more on disseminating information. They are going to tackle the spread of diseases like syphilis, chlamydia and HIV. ?Sailor Moon and her team focus on women between their teens and 30s.
If you belong to the age group mentioned above, be sure to be tested. If you won?t, Sailor Moon?s team will punish you. Her team sticks with the admonition that “if you don’t get tested, I will punish you!”
Sailor Moon Stands For Safe Sex
Rise in the rate of infection that affects men and women today is alarming. According to a report, there are more than 3,000 cases of syphilis as of October 2016. It is significantly rising compared to the 827 cases of syphilis in 2011. There were less than 1000 during the 90s.
The creator of Sailor Moon and the Ministry of Health hope that Sailor Moon can destigmatize the subject. Women should be encouraged to pay more attention to their health. In doing so, the spread of sexually transmitted disease can be prevented.
The Sailor Moon campaign also includes plans to distribute 56,000 condom packs. These condom packs will be distributed with the help of the local government. There are 5,000 posters and 156,000 flyers to be distributed too.
Starring Princess Serenity herself, it is expected that the campaign will be a huge help in preventing the spread of disease. It turns out that the beloved character of all time does not only prevent the destruction of the galaxy. She takes care of preventing the spread of chlamydia, syphilis, and HIV too.
