Force for good in Sinagpore

Girls playing pool in a Batam barSingapore wants its citizens to take more responsibility for their sexual behaviour, Bloomberg reports. “We’re trying to find a way essentially to ask them to be responsible for their own actions,” said Koh Peng Keng, the Health Ministry’s senior director of operations.” “Them”, in this case, is people who do daft things like have unprotected anal sex with casual partners, or who don’t use condoms when they go whoring in the neighbouring Indonesian island of Batam (where more than 1 sex worker in 10 is HIV-infected). And how will the nation state nudge people to take more responsibility for themselves? By making personal responsibility a matter for the courts, of course. The idea seems to be that if any one does anything “risky” without telling their subsequent partners, they can be prosecuted (even if they later test HIV negative).
