The "We All Snore the Same Language Project" is a world-wide campaign to raise awareness of the medical problems associated with snoring and obstructive sleep apnea and to emphasize the role that specially trained dentists can play in recognition and management of sleep breathing disorders.

Snoring isn't sexy no matter what language one speaks. Accordingly, Snoring isn't Sexy is out to prove that these common ailments - which are shared by people of different cultures, races, religions, and nationalities - serve to unite us with a common bond.

The project came about at a year-end review of the visitor statistics at SnoringIsntSexy.com. By the end of 2011, SnoringIsntSexy.com had been visited by more than a million people from 192 countries on all 7 continents, by people in countries whose governments are at odds with the United States, and by people living in countries considered allies, by city dwellers and those in rural areas and even folks at an isolated base in Antarctica.

Regardless of ethnicity, geography or politics all visitors had one thing in common - snoring (and sleep apnea) occur in the same language.

"The 'We All Snore the Same Language Project' is here to celebrate our commonality rather than to emphasize our differences" said Laurence Barsh, Founder of Snoring Isn't Sexy. "and we might as well have some fun doing it."

Snoring Isn't Sexy requests submission of a video (or photograph) in which is said (or printed on a sign) "I snore too!" in whatever language is spoken in the identified location where the video is recorded. Visit The Project's web page to send the video or photograph. A YouTube.com video will be designed to spread the word. Naturally, videos from the United States, Canada and the rest of the English speaking world are welcome as well. .mov, .avi, .mpeg or .wmv files, a .jpeg of not more than 500kb, or a video on YouTube.com are all acceptable.
