Ministry tells girls to keep their knickers on

The Ministry of Women Af­fairs will release a 30- minute video on February 14 urging girls to resist pressure to have sex, Sec­retary of State for Women’s Af­­fairs Sivann Botum said yesterday.

The video is part of a campaign to buck the recent trend of young girls looking to consummate their relation­ships on Valen­tine’s Day.

 “One bunch of flow­ers does not mean we have to have sex with our boyfriends,” said Sivann Botum. “I beg wo­m­en to please maintain our Khmer traditions because vir­ginity is very important,” she said, adding that girls should focus on their studies when young.
