Racy videos woo 'first time' voters

Under the racy slogan “the first time is just for love”, Vladimir Putin supporters have posted a series of videos aimed at young voters in an increasingly intense presidential election campaign battle.

The professional-quality videos initially seem to show young women worrying about losing their virginity before it turns out — in a heavy double entendre — that they are wondering for whom to cast their first time votes. And the answer is clear: “Putin — the first time is just for love.”

“You know doctor — I am very scared, although my choice is one of love,” a girl, played by an actress, tells her doctor in one of the videos.

“Of course I understand. Everyone is afraid the first time,” the doctor replies. “The main thing is to trust your choice. Because trust is love. And your choice you can trust,” as the camera closes in on a picture of Prime Minister Putin amid romantic music.

The girl is then shown happily walking to the polling station. In a second video, a doctor tells another girl: “The main thing is to be sure it’s safe. Especially the first time.”But as the camera again finds a picture of Putin, he says: “With him, it will be safe.” Again the video concludes with the girl casting her vote.
