Japan Jumps on Pro-Abstinence Bandwagon


That's the only explanation I can come up with for this:

Japan's Education Ministry plans to publish and distribute a free magazine called "Science Walker" packed with scientific topics that young people can chat about with their sweethearts while on dates.

The Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology publishes the magazine to promote science knowledge, because a governmental poll has found that only 40 percent of pollees in the 20s or younger take an interest in science and technology.

Matt Welch hipped us to the death of another state-sponsored teenybopper mag—Hi Magazine—back in January.
