Volunteers wanted for public sex at trade exhibition
An Australian sex trade exhibition is calling on volunteers to have sex in public.
Viewers will hear and see couples have sex, but will only see shadow images projected onto a screen. Sex in public is illegal in Australia.
Organisers of the Brisbane Sexpo are confident they will get recruits.
The event will be held in a theatre providing a forum for up to 4,000 visitors to watch the couple's 'display'.
"I liken it to the fact voyeurism sites are the most popular of all sites on the internet," said the event founder David Ross.
"People like to watch and be watched ... as long as it's done in a non-tacky way. It's probably a logical progression for our event."
Mr Ross first saw the idea while on an Amsterdam study tour, and said people who opposed the idea were probably denying their sexuality.
"They really should come along themselves," Mr Ross said. "People pay to come in. One would assume people know they're not going to a flower show."
The act may also be recorded and broadcast on a big screen and on the internet.
Sexpo runs from February 28 to March 3 to provide information on health, adult entertainment, sexuality and adult lifestyles.
