RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil (AP) -- The mere idea that U.S. soldiers on leave from Iraq see Rio's carnival as a free-floating sex party has Brazilians outraged.It's rather sad that people who say they enjoy sex have such a problem understanding and respecting a celebration of the human body.
A report in Britain's The Guardian newspaper that American soldiers are looking to Rio for rest and recreation - especially sex tourism - prompted many Brazilians to say that the gringos have it all wrong.
Despite all the jiggling, sweating flesh on display Saturday, Brazilians say the annual spectacle - which is expected to draw 700,000 revelers through Tuesday - isn't all about sex. It is, they say, a celebration of the body, closer in the spirit to the Olympics than a strip bar.
