Hara Vs. STDs

Hara Saori is the new Stop! STD girl.

If you've ever been to Shibuya there's no way you'd have missed the Stop! STD campaign. They have a frighteningly large poster across from the 109 building, always a close-up of an AV idol's face, and seem to be trying to raise awareness of STDs by just writing Stop! STD everywhere. A worthy cause, but a dubious method. You should go to their website, if only to see what kind of mascot they think is appropriate for an STD-awareness campaign.

Amongst their videos is this one, claiming that 1 in every 15 Japanese youths have an STD. Which can't be true. Can it? I mean, it couldn't be. Could it?
