OttawaWhat:    Wearing little more than sexy underwear and bearing heart-shaped signs that read, “Vegans Make Better Lovers,” two PETA supporters will make out in a bed outside the meat-heavy Nate’s Deli on Tuesday, the day before Valentine’s Day. The sexy duo will remind those eager to please their partners that eating meat can put a damper on bedroom time—by reducing blood flow to all the body’s organs.

When:    Tuesday, February 13, 12 noon

Where:    Outside Nate’s Deli, on the southeast corner of Sparks and O’Connor streets, Ottawa

“What goes on in the kitchen has a lot to do with what goes on—or doesn’t—in the bedroom,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “PETA’s message is that whether you’re after a sizzling physique or an increase in stamina, going vegan is a great way to boost performance.”

PETA, whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat,” notes that meat-eaters have higher rates of suffering from heart disease, strokes, diabetes, obesity, and cancer—not to mention impotence—than vegans do. And each person who goes vegan saves more than 100 animals a year from daily suffering and a terrifying death in today’s meat, egg, and dairy industries.

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
