I was thinking about the Department of Peace, proposed by American Founding Father Benjamen Rush.
What if every government had a Ministry of Sex, or a Department of Sex?  What would their day-to-day operations consists of?  What would their goal be?

Promote sex.
--------

But that will most likely result in the world becoming over-populated therefore a Ministry or Department of Sex will not be feasible :)

What would their goal be? 

Quote
In his wisdom dictator Nicolae Ceausescu decided in the mid-1960s that Romania ought to have 25 million people. At the time the population was 19 million. He designated the title "Heroine Mother" for any woman who bore and brought up ten or more children. For seven to nine children a woman won the order of "Maternal Glory." For five or six children she was given the "Maternity Medal."

In their wisdom the mothers of Romania, living in cramped quarters with a poor diet and a declining standard of living, decided that, medals or no medals, they could not support large families. They were having on average less than two children apiece. If that reproduction rate continued, Romania's population would begin to fall.

The pill and the intrauterine device had never been allowed in the country. Other modern means of contraception were essentially unavailable. The women were maintaining their low birth rate with the only option open to them -- abortion, which was legal and available on a walk-in basis at any local clinic for a fee of about $2. In 1966 in Romania there were four abortions for every live birth.

In that year, with no warning, Ceausescu issued Decree No. 770 prohibiting abortion. He did nothing to make contraceptives more available. He was not motivated by concern for families or unborn children; he wanted a larger labor force.

What about 'Heroic Fathers'? Did everyone just forget about them?

We already have such a ministry, or so it seems, for too many MP's who can't keep it in their pants or have knickers like yoyo's.

Excellent choices.

I guess we would need someone to deal with sexual diseases, contraception, under aged sex and pregnancy, Pedophiles and other sexual crime. Then there is the fun stuff. Swinging secretary, hedonism department, S&M department which is located next to a good DIY shop and marks and spencers, Fetishism shoe box and the secretary in various positions.
