The Singapore Govt., worried about the birthrate, is offering lessons in seduction.

[THE Singapore Government is offering students lessons in seduction to boost the city state's flagging birthrate.
Students at two polytechnics can earn two credits towards their final degree by choosing the love elective. Activities include watching romantic films, holding hands and "love song analysis".
Isabel Seet, an 18-year-old mechanical engineering student, told the Straits Times newspaper: "My teacher said if a guy looks into my eyes for more than five seconds, it could mean that he is attracted to me and I stand a chance."
Besides "love and sexuality", the curriculum also deals with the importance of family life.
The "trainers" are provided by the Social Development Unit, a government match-making agency.
But it is not so easy to put Singaporean youth in the mood for love. Another student who did the course, Kamal Prakash, said: "I'm not really looking for a girlfriend now as I want to concentrate on my studies."]

Past studies have found that Singaporean young women are far more interested in a career, and financial success than an still largely traditional relationship with a man who is not their intellectual or professional equal. The country is a victim of it's own success in some ways.

Yeah. And Stalin decriminalized rape if it resulted in pregnancy.

Luckily they are having the same problem in Japan too. If only the rest of the world could have it so good....
