Australian "Sex Party" Wants to Change Negative Notions

Australian "Sex Party" Wants to Change Negative Notions

Australians will find a new political party on the ballot next time there's a vote. The Australian Sex Party has officially registered as a political party. Its mission is to further an open and positive discussion about sexual topics like censorship, education, health, and discrimination. The party wants to offer an alternative to "morals campaigners and prudish politicians," and you can follow its activism on Twitter.

The creators of the Australian Sex Party say that the fact that it took a while for election officials to decide whether or not to allow the word "sex" in the name of a political party proves that the party is necessary. Fiona Patten, a creator and likely future candidate, explains:

"One of the reasons for establishing the party was to provide a positive platform for sexual issues amongst the negative notions of sex that most politicians and political parties have."

Does this idea get your vote?

I'd join it. And vote for it on the relavent measures. I wish we had a party like that in the US. I think we need one, for the mental and physical health and well-being of the country, if anything.

I understand what they're getting at, and I honestly wish more politicians would be honest about sexual issues (since I've been noticing more and more that the family values idiots are always the ones with the sex scandals), but I'm not sure that an entire political party is necessary.

It's a one issue party.

It's nice that people want to be real about sex, and not pretend like abstinence and skirting around the issue is the best way to handle the desire. Why they created a party around it is sort of...odd. But I get what they are trying to do.
