Omaha, Neb. – Ahead of Valentine’s Day, two PETA supporters will cuddle in a bed in the heart of The Old Market on Wednesday to 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:    Wednesday, February 5, 12 noon

Where:    At the intersection of Howard and S. 12th streets, Omaha

“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 heart disease, strokes, diabetes, obesity, and cancer—not to mention impotence—than vegans do. And 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 opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview. For more information, please visit PETA.org.

“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
