From the Brisbane Courier Mail 16th. November 2008

AUSTRALIA'S sex industry is launching a new political party to counter the increasing influence of religious groups in politics and government.

The Australian Sex Party hopes to be up and running by Friday having secured 500 signatures and registration with the Australian Electoral Commission.

Party spokeswoman and CEO of the Eros Association Fiona Patten said the party planned to campaign on issues such as censorship, the federal government's promised internet filter, health benefits for sex workers, gay marriage and paid maternity leave.

Ms Paten said the party hoped to win seats in state upper houses and the Senate using the slogun 'We're Serious About Sex'.

"We're hoping for at least one Senate seat in the next federal election," she said.

The nation's sex shops would become party branches, she said.
