Sex Parties Rule, But Only in Certain Areas

sex party attireLet's have a sex party! Sounds like fun. Get the balloons, banners and invites ready. Think of something to wear, or not wear. If you're hosting a party, add some plates, napkins, special glasses, candles and candies to celebrate the event. Don't rule out inflatable dolls, games, gift bags or other novelties, depending on your choice of party. Sex parties rule at sex conventions and group gatherings or in private homes.

There are lots of neat things to do at a sex party. Sometimes you discover new approaches and innovative ways of making love. You meet new people with similar interests or unusual hobbies that pique your interests. Wouldn't it be great if the whole country got involved in a sex party? What a time! What a country!

Guess what? In Australia, the entire country has a sex party. But before you head to Los Angeles and book a flight on Qantas for a 17-hour trip to Sydney, it's not the kind of party you might envision. The Australian Sex Party is a political party that speaks to the sexual needs of Australians as well as other issues from equality to working conditions.

Meanwhile, the Sex Party has made headlines across the globe. It recently filed complaints in the U.S. and Australia against Google for not allowing it to use ads for a political campaign until a day before the election was held. This led to the Sex Party losing votes and contributions, party leaders claim. Complaints were sent to the U.S. Department of Justice and the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission, alleging unlawful practices and interference in an election.

But back to politics, the Sex Party seeks to end the attack on and distortions of sexual privacy from "morals campaigns and prudish politicians," according to its mission statement. The party wants to grant sex workers the same human rights as other workers in Australia. Party leaders propose "non morality-based immigration policies that allow bona-fide sex workers to work legally in Australia." They also oppose sex slavery and child pornography. They want sex education curriculum for children as well as decriminalization of drugs.

"The vast majority of Australians are relaxed and tolerant of a broad spectrum of sexual expression," the party statement reads. But state and federal governments have "pursued policies and legislation that have restricted sexual free speech and expression – often under threat of large fines and even jail sentences."

Not bad ides from this Sex Party. In some places where sex laws have been relaxed, legalized prostitution has been working. Areas in Nevada allow the operation of brothels as long as they adhere to certain laws. The employees undergo frequent tests for sexually transmitted diseases. The sex businesses not only remain disease free, but have also become quite popular. And they provide valuable tax revenue for localities, even building schools and other government facilities, thanks to consensual sex. One Nevada town became quite prosperous with skyrocketing businesses and community necessities for residents, who tried to stay clear of the outside brothel and ignore the reasons for their prosperity. That was until the feds arrested the owner on tax evasion charges and the brothel went belly up. So did the town. In a few years, residents disappeared. It is now a ghost town. But other communities where the legal brothels still exist continue to thrive. Little Johnny goes to a nice school everyday, unaware that prostitutes and horny dudes have paid for his education.

Amsterdam has long had a popular and legal red-light district. Women show themselves off behind glass windows so potential customers can comparison shop. The only problems have been with the tourists. Posted signs ask visitors to kindly avoid taking pictures and allow business to transpire as normally as possible. Amsterdam and some other cities in the Netherlands allow marijuana to be sold and enjoyed in coffee shops. The laws are sketchy and frequently change. But by and large the activity keeps the cities operating pleasantly without any difficulty from potheads. Amsterdam, however, makes a clear distinction between marijuana and harder drugs with extreme penalties for the latter.

The problem with the Sex Party in Australia is that it's too much of a turn-off for those relaxed, tolerant people, who won't be casting their votes on the basis of sex. Most blokes and sheilas in Australia, and other civilized countries, aren't bothered by the idea of legalized sexual operations as long as they are practiced according to civil laws and with respect to the community. Places such as Amsterdam and specific areas in Nevada have been able to achieve the successful operations of consensual sex businesses without sensationalism. A parent walking a child to school may not be offended knowing that such operations exist nearby as long as the business is operated properly and without drawing attention to children.

A normal, thinking person realizes paid sex between consensual adults avoids the black market and forced criminal activity on the streets. But that same relaxed, tolerant person gets a little uneasy with a political organization calling itself the Sex Party. Sex parties are fine, as long as they're kept private, he or she might think. But when a political party bases its platform on sexual matters, at least from the sound of its name, Mr. and Mrs. Average run for the hills, thinking their town will be overrun by flakes, perverts and scoundrels. Bless the Sex Party, but it stands as much chance of winning elections throughout Australia as Roseanne Barr does becoming the next President of the U.S. Yes, she's running, but It ain't gonna happen. If you want relaxed standards when it comes to sex and drugs, do it rationally to get legislation passed. Take your time and explain the benefits. It's not easy and it won't happen in most places, but it has happened.
