Two Japanese gay porn stars will promote safe sex at a party in Taipei tomorrow.

Taiwan AIDS Foundation invited the two actors, Koh Masaki and Kong, to a launch party for a gay health education website and a new centre in Ximenting, a gay area in Taiwan's capital.

When asked about the attention grabbing stunt, the director of Taiwan AIDS Foundation Bevis Tseng told CNA: 'They have been invited to promote the importance of health education and the use of condoms. [Compared with more conventional campaigns] having the film stars talk about health education will be more effective among the gay community.'

Popular gay porn actor Masaki recently said in an interview with Knows Bangkok that since last year he has insisted on wearing condoms in his films. 

A February 2012 report said there were over 22,000 cases of HIV among the over 23 million population of Taiwan, of which 39% identified as homosexual.
