"The organiser of a Brisbane sex exhibition is confident he'll easily recruit volunteers to become the first Australians to have sex in public at a Sexpo event."

Apparently "People like to watch and be watched...as long as it's done in a non-tacky way." Having sex at a giant dildo sale. How could that possibly be tacky?

Well, his idea for doing it in a shadowed theatre instead of just throwing a Serta into the middle of the sales floor is a bid toward good taste and anonymity. I wouldn't want to do it, but for those shy folk with voyeurism fantasies, I could see how it would appeal. What I want to know is what they're going to do with the taped sessions after the expo is over. Maybe this is just a ploy to get cheap/free talent for mass-marketed pornography?

I agree. What a ridiculous idea.

It being tacky, that is.

Here's Sexpo. Looks to have been running acouple of years, making the tour of Oz cities. Especially Perth. They're so far away, you know. It now "lays claim to being the most popular exhibition in Australia (in square meter terms)".

Frankly, I think this is less tacky than your typical swingers club found in every major city in America and abroad. It sounds like a tasteful representation for those who wish to exhibit and those who wish to watch imho.

It's not an embarassing thing..but it can turn into one if they stop having sex all the time :) I think it's better for them to run a looped tape.

Size isn't everything.

Also, it won't be tacky if they use plenty of lubricant.

Okay, I'm done.

Sure. You're done. But what about me.

I don't see anything wrong with this.

I'm much more likely to approve of people having sex in public (semi-public, more accurately) than I am to approve of boxing, "professional" wrestling, Ultimate Fighting, and any other public displays of gratuitous violence.

I guess my flower-child roots are showing.

crash_davis: just because you can't flog the dolphin during UFC doesn't mean it isn't fun!

A follow-up -- everyone wants a piece of the action. Maybe they should reverse the setup - 4000 people rooting, and a handful watching from the other side...

robcorr: Funny, in America, the people watching would be the ones rooting. Which to us means "cheering".
