London – In honour of World Vegetarian Week, two PETA members will passionately make out in a luxurious bed outside the Smithfield Market tomorrow. The public display of passion is bound to raise a few of the local butchers’ eyebrows and turn lots of passer-bys’ heads. Their point? Vegetarians make better lovers.

The cuddly couple will include Mr. Ludvig Lindstrom – a former “Sexiest Vegetarian” finalist from Sweden – and Miss. Joanne Sim – a blond Scottish beauty. Lindstrom will wear only boxer shorts, and Sim will be decked out in sexy lingerie. While the not-so-discreet duo “get it on”, activists will pass out free copies of PETA’s “Vegetarian Starter Kits” to let onlookers know how they can spice up their own sex lives. A banner reading, “Vegetarians Make Better Lovers”, will hang above the bed. It’s all a part of PETA’s World Vegetarian Week campaign.

Date:      Tuesday, 20 May
Time:     10 a.m sharp
Place:     Smithfield Market, Charterhouse Street (near Starbucks on Cowcross Street)

Why are vegetarians better in the bedroom than meat-eaters? For one thing, vegetarians are on average more fit and trim and have more energy and stamina than people who eat fat-laden meat, dairy products and eggs. And vegetarians don’t have to rely on chemical potions like Viagra to be up for the task: The cholesterol in meat and other animal products causes hardening of the arteries, slowing the flow of blood to all the body’s vital organs, not just the heart. Speaking of heart, there’s nothing sexy about someone who turns a blind eye to the daily suffering of the billions of animals raised and killed for food.

“What could be more of a turn-on than snuggling up to someone who’s both passionate and compassionate?” asks PETA campaigner Lauren Bowey.

PETA’s Live Make-Out will also visit Paris, the city of love, on Wednesday.
