Lost in Translation

In the English-speaking paper The Jakarta Post, I read that a student movement in Indonesia has just launched an active campaign to warn young people about the use of drugs and the need to stay in school. Most interestingly, though, they say they also want to warn against the dangers of “free sex”. Presumably sex that you don’t get charged for is more harmful than the stuff you have to pay for.

“Promiscuity” would probably have been a better translation.
