The German Election...
Equal Rights for Lesbians, Gays and HeterosBeing a close fought contest this time around, sex appears to be featuring high on the political agenda in Germany at the moment.

The Social Democrats (trying to retain power) are using the slogan "That was the foreplay. The climax is yet to come".

The former Communist Part of Democratic Socialism are using the slogan "Today I'll have a shag. Tomorrow I'll smoke a joint. The day after that I'll vote."

As you have probably guessed by now these steamy tactics are aimed chiefly at Germany's 2.5 million first-time voters.

However it's The Green Party that has the most interesting poster (left) - based on the 16th Century Mannerist painting.

The caption reads: "Equal Rights for Lesbians, Gays and Heteros"

I know next to nothing about German politics? Who should the Germans be voting for?
