See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
San Francisco taxpayers get a lot for their money – typical government services, homeless shelters, and….giant penises. That’s right. The hardworking residents of San Francisco are paying for a giant penis. Three, actually – all in different hues (racism, you know?). SFGate.com reports that the SF Department of Public Health has made the decision to yank the 6 ft. tall penis from retirement after 4 years. Healthy Penis first rose to the scene in 2002 and was used as a tool to encourage men in the gay community to receive regular testing for STDs.
The Healthy Penis will be displayed at parades, community events and wherever he can be inserted into the throbbing nightlife of San Francisco’s thriving gay community. His point? While HIV cases have been steadily declining in the San Francisco area, other STDs such as chlamydia and gonorrhea have seen a sharp increase. Healthy Penis wants to remind gay men that it’s not too hard to get tested every 6 months in order to maintain their own healthy penises. Those who do decide to get tested will receive a coupon for discounts at local business and a soft Healthy Penis plush toy to squeeze and pull to relieve stress.
San Francisco provides a wide girth of social services for it’s residents. Some might say they have enough balls in the air as it is and perhaps taxpayers don’t need to be paying for 6 ft. genitalia to be thrust into the middle of parades and other community celebrations.
