Text:Today is National Penis Day, a New Zealand AIDS Foundation initiative aimed to encourage men to talk more openly about their sexual health and wellbeing. As part of the initiative, several radio stations had been approached by the AIDS Foundation to spread the word about the day, but AIDS Foundation's Gay Men's Health Manager Kerry Price admits it is a challenge to get some to take on board the serious intent behind the humourous facade. Top-rating commercial youth radio network The Edge is staging a publicity stunt in Christchurch this afternoon to mark National Penis Day, encouraging members of the public to participate in a naked human sculpture in the shape of a penis, inspired by the naked art pictures of photographer Spencer Tunick.
