Sex Advice Video Available on Quantas Flights

Daily Mail: Want to know more - or anything - about the female orgasm? Then just sit back in your Qantas seat, flick on the in-flight entertainment programme and it is all there.

A documentary, The Female Orgasm Explained, that was first run on an Australian TV network has raised eyebrows among the Australian airline's economy passengers. With excerpts from old porn films, it features graphics and sounds that are likely to make conservative commuters squirm and reach for the comedy channel.

The French-made film has been included in the airline's in-flight entertainment programme on its international flights to help viewers 'understand the intricacies of the female orgasm,' said a spokesman. And while it has resulted in some passengers changing to other shows, Qantas spokesman Luke Enright said the programme was the most popular on its TV channel and would continue to be screened until November.

'A programme synopsis is provided in the in-flight entertainment guide and the channel carries a warning that some of the content is not suitable for children,' said Mr Enright.

The film also carries a Mature Adults rating and the crew are able to block the film if it is available at a seat occupied by unaccompanied minors at the request of parents. While many passengers have switched on, sociology experts have raised concerns about it being available on an airline.

Dr Michael Flood, a sociologist at the University of Wollongong, south of Sydney, said airing the documentary in a public domain was 'fascinating but problematic.'

He told Sydney's Daily Telegraph that it was great if children and young people could learn about sexual pleasure 'because most children are only taught about the biology of sex. But I don't think this documentary is 'age appropriate' and it's not designed as a sexual education tool.'

'There's a growing sexuality in our culture and perhaps it reflects how sexual material is being made increasingly available.'
