A special box was placed on the central square of the Brazilian town of Esperantina during the celebration of orgasm day. Anyone was welcome to put a sexual message in the box. The streets of the city were decorated with slogans like this one: “Orgasm is a gift from Heaven.” The celebration of orgasm day was over with a seminar, which was presided over by 63-year-old prostitute Raimonda Alves. She narrated the story of her clients’ sexual preferences.
Arimatea Dantas, a representative of socialists in the municipal council (Dantas funded the celebrations), stated in his interview to a local newspaper that the goal of the holiday was to make people feel free to say what they experienced while having sex. Dantas hopes that the holiday will help to improve the sexual life of local residents. He also claimed: “The majority of women here have never experienced orgasm, they even do not know such a word.” However, Esperantina’s mayor does not share Dantas’s opinion. Ivaldo Franko declared that the town had more serious problems than orgasm - poverty, for example.
