The law that state Gov. Roshina Garotinho signed last week bans bikini-clad women in photo montages or outside of natural beach settings on postcards. The goal of the law is to reduce sex tourism and exploitation in Brazil’s tourist hot spot. Luiz Alberto, who runs a newsstand near Copacabana beach, told AP reporter Peter Muello that postcards of Sugar Loaf mountain and Christ the Redeemer are much bigger sellers. “These cards were mostly for gringos,” he said. “This ban is just silly.”
