Sex can now lead you to climb the ladder of politics!

This phenomenon is being branded about in Australia where a political party is all set to be launched for all those who take sex "seriously".

'The Australian sex party' with a slogan "we are serious about sex" would be launched in Melbourne on Thursday.

The party, which is targeting four million Australians who access pornography, believes it has a real chance of winning seats in state and federal parliaments.

Its policies will include a national sex education curriculum, reducing censorship, abolishing government's proposed Internet filter and supporting gay marriage.

Party convener Fiona Patten was quoted in a media report saying that the Internet filter would put the Australian sex industry out of business in five years.

"It's a real step backwards to where we've come. In fact it's far more censorial then we probably were 30 years ago," she said adding, "material that would be classified X-rated ... Is considered illegal content and that is material that is currently available ... In newsagents."

"You will not be able to opt out of that block."

Emphasising over the need of national sex curriculum, Fiona said, "There's so much concern about the sexualisation of children, children being exposed to material. I would have thought our first action would be education" she added.
