Swedish artist teaches sex to Austrians

”She is a very experienced teacher,” School spokesperson Melodi Kirsch told Austrian weekly News.At.

According to the paper, Thompson will function as headmistress of the Austrian International School of Sex (AISOS) in Vienna, which will open its doors to students in mid-December.

The school says it is pleased to be headed by Thompson, best known in Sweden for hosting erotic TV in the 80s and 90s and for her artwork Anonyma Exhibitionister (Exhibitionists Anonymous) where she cast a hundred Swedish women's sexual organs.

The school is offering five basic courses, as well as intensive courses and weekend seminars for those who feel they need extra tuition. The minimum age to enrol at the school is sixteen.

According to the school's website, the AISOS courses will cover both theory and practice, with an emphasis on practical training.

Although the school, claiming to be Europe's first school of sex, offers a curriculum which includes historical and modern sexual theory, the emphasis is on becoming a better lover.

“Sexual positions, caressing techniques, anatomical features – these are the AISOS disciplines. And we teach you hands on,” the website reads.

"We are confident that the school will be a great success. Ylva-Maria has worked for a long time on this idea and has received much encouragement and interest,” Kirsch told the Austrian paper.

However, those that expect the school to be only fun and games, will be bitterly disappointed. At the end of each course exams must be passed and the cost of each term is €1,400 ($1,860).

The Local's attempts to reach Thompson to confirm the claims have so far proved unsuccessful.

This has to be a classic Local blunder! Do you need extra TUITION or tutoring, perhaps?

I wonder to know how they take the exam and, of course, the grading :P

Besides the physiological, include the emotional and psychological for success.

This is a good idea, people still believe that sex is taboo, I mean we're not in the middle ages although back then it was much more about having kids than actually enjoying a nice afternoon with your wife. Sex is a very important subject people should learn how to do it and the dangers and benefits from it. Stop being so taboo people.

"the AISOS courses will cover both theory and practice, with an emphasis on practical training".? I will really like to take the practical aspect...Oh how about having such institution down here in Sweden? so that those that were starve of sex by their boy or girlfriend can have a free session with no tuition fees since we don't pay tuition for education.

@ Douglas Garner - sorry, old chap - don't follow... what IS it precisely that you're griping about? Two words that mean the same thing, with the slightly longer one being perhaps somewhat more commonly employed by our colonial friends across the pond. You'll be claiming that elks are moose next... :)

Trust me, if the Austrians weren't already clear on the basics, they would have gone extinct ages ago, like their neighbors the Etruscans.

Sex - doesn't that come between five and seven? Or am I simply thinking about a lot of silly old numbers?
