New Haven, Conn. – On Valentine’s Day, an underwear-clad PETA pair will cuddle on a bed in New Haven and inform passersby that eating meat reduces blood flow to all organs, not just the heart—a quick way to put a damper on bedroom time. The lovers will also point out that nothing would kill the mood faster than peeking behind the curtain into slaughterhouse operations and that people can improve their strength and stamina for any occasion by going vegan on February 14 and beyond.
When: Tuesday, February 14, 11:45 a.m.
Where: Intersection of Temple and Chapel streets, New Haven
“Nourishing vegan food is the difference between sizzling and fizzling between the sheets,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “PETA is helping people have big, healthy hearts and reap the benefits in the bedroom and beyond.”
PETA notes that because low-fat, high-fiber vegan eating helps prevent artery blockages and lowers blood pressure, meat-eaters have higher rates of impotence than vegans do—and studies published in the Journal of the American Heart Association show that plant-powered eating reduces the risk of heart disease by a whopping 52%. And, of course, each person who goes vegan spares nearly 200 animals a year daily suffering and a terrifying death in today’s meat, egg, and dairy industries.
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview. For more information, please visit PETA.org, listen to The PETA Podcast, or follow the group on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.
