I am sure i once heard that the Indonesian government gave away free motorbikes for males if they had a voluntary sterilisation. Am i making this up or has anyone heard of this before too?

Thanks I already have Russia sex day and India's free car give away, but live and teach in Indonesia and wanted a local relevant case study. I must have made it up as cannot find anything on line either!

Not heard about the motorbike but the family planning buffalo and vasectomy carnivals in Thailand always provoke some good discussion!

I've got to ask, 'what is the family planning buffalo?'

Thailand does make an interesting population policy case study. My students seem enjoy learning about the role of the PDa through looking at the 'Cabbages and Condoms' restaurant and their family planning/AIDS projects.

The buffalo is mentioned in the link I posted
Essentially you 'sign up' to family planning in rural areas and you get discounted/free use of the buffalo to help you plow the fields

Thailand has some great schemes, policemen giving out free condoms the students enjoy

I believe they also have the highest level of sterilisation in the world as well
