Finally! A Sex Party!

Okay – not quite as much fun as a REAL sex party….

SYDNEY, Australia —  The name may seem like a joke, but the Australian Sex Party is serious — serious about sex, according to their slogan.

The country’s newest political party is also serious about a number of other issues: quashing a government proposal for a national Internet filter that would block 10,000 Web sites; instituting a national sex education curriculum; and pushing for the legalization of gay marriage.

The party — launched Thursday at Sexpo, an annual sex exhibition in Melbourne — has already gathered the required 500 members and plans to register with the electoral commission next week.

While most of its members are drawn from Eros — Australia’s national adult industry association— the Sex Party believes it can attract a broader base.

“We’re concerned about the Australian government becoming a nanny state, and about this conservative creep in politics,” party convener and Eros head Fiona Patten told The Associated Press by phone.
