A Dutch online training in safer sex is so popular that the website featuring short instruction videos was overloaded Friday, the Amsterdam health authorities told the ANP news agency.

The website called www.vrijlekker.nl (have nice sex) went online on Wednesday and just hours after opening already had nearly half a million hits.

Although the Amsterdam health authorities, that set up the website to combat the rise in sexually transmitted diseases in young people aged 16 to 24, had expected the site would be popular "this beats our wildest expectations", Udi Davidovich of the GGD health services told ANP.

So far the site has had nearly 960,000 hits generated by around 60,000 people. The GGD has increased the site's capacity so that more curious youths can get safer sex training.
