Emergency Condoms to Burma

Apparently the swingers' scene is really hopping in Burma right now:
The United Nations will send nearly a quarter of a million condoms into cyclone-hit Myanmar to help needy survivors with no access to contraceptives, a UN official says.

So far, the UN Population Fund (UNFPA) said it had sent 72 800 condoms to survivors struggling to maintain their family planning after the storm hit in early May.

Well, consider that a lesson learned here.  It is common for mini-baby booms to occur after disasters.  I always thought the boomlets were the result of a deep seated instinct in humans to procreate in the face of tragedy.  Turns out they are just the result of rubber shortages.  My bad.  (HT: Sykes)
Oh, and nevermind that whole hierarchy of needs...every good Euro-minded liberal knows that no need comes above sex.  Thank goodness the UN is addressing the greatest needs of the Burmese---sheaths for their swords.
