Myanmar: Smartphone sexual training arrives
There is no such thing as MOSTURBATION in Myanmar - not the usual practise, but the term itself, which is missing in the state-recognized vocabulary. Linguistics do not agree whether "vagina" and "penis" are equivalent in Burmese. The majority of humans just point to their parts of the human organism or use a euphemism, says Nandar, a grassroots campaigner who translated female lit.
At a Burmese New Year celebration, Yangon prohibited the sales of contraception and Viagra in the hopes of reducing sexual outrage. "The Vagina Monologues", a daring piece, was recently staged in the trading capitol Yangon. A few years ago, the simple English release of the V-word in a newspaper caused such a commotion that the newspaper apologized.
However, even if the Myanmar sex revolutionary did not reach Myanmar, the technology revolutionary did. Smart phones are altering the way Burmese people see their body. Last year, the trailers for "Violet of Myanmar", the country's first high-resolution film for adults, caused a hurricane when it was made available on the Internet. But on the positive side, they now have at least the undeniable evidence that there really is such a thing as mas-turbation.

The Myanmar Times was formed in 2000 by Dunkley and Sonny Swe, the brainchild of a senior army news official, who was imprisoned for violating the country's law of censure for 14 years in 2005.
