Annotation

After the world is ravaged by sexually transmitted diseases, breeding is controlled to guarantee disease free children. The Freeforalls are where anyone who is outside the breeding program is sent. In these walled compounds, food is dropped in daily by helicopter, and there is no limit on sex, but it is expected that most will die fairly soon.
