Day of orgasm

Rio de Janeiro, May 10 (AP): Sex rarely makes the news in Brazilís conservative northeast ' until a small town has declared an official orgasm day.

Espertantina mayor Felipe Santolia endorsed the holiday yesterday, which he said was intended to improve relationships between married couples.

The city council passed a law on Saturday creating the holiday. 'Iím 32, single and I have an open mind. Besides, the theme is very much of the moment,' he said.
