  • Description

    THE WORLD'S SECOND SEX FAIR, WHICH FEATURES PUBLIC EXHIBITIONS OF SEXUAL INTERCOURSE, HAS OPENED IN THE DANISH TOWN OF ODENSE. THE FAIR - ENTITLED 'SEX FOR THE MILLIONS' - IS BEING HELD FROM MARCH 19 TO 22.

    VISITORS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD HAVE BEEN FLOCKING TO THE FAIR, SITUATED ONLY 50 YARDS (METRES) FROM THE BIRTHPLACE OF FAIRY TALE WRITER HANS CHRISTIAN ANDERSEN. ALL HOTELS WERE BOOKED UP FOR THE EXHIBITION'S FOUR-DAY DURATION, WITH TOURISTS ARRIVING BY LAND, SEA AND AIR.

    MAIN INTEREST IS CENTRED ON A CLUB NEAR THE EXHIBITION HALL, WERE PAID MODELS PERFORM PUBLIC ACTS OF SEXUAL INTERCOURSE. TO AVOID TROUBLE WITH POLICE, VISITORS ARE REQUIRED TO JOIN THE CLUB 24 HOURS IN ADVANCE.

    ANOTHER MAIN ATTRACTION IS COLOUR FILMS OF COUPLES COPULATING - WITH SOUND EFFECTS. THERE ARE 48 STALLS IN THE EXHIBITIONS HALL, FEATURING COLOURED PICTURES OF MALE AND FEMALE SEXUAL ORGANS AND SEX AIDS. ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR ATTRACTIONS IS THE MARQUIS DE SADE TORTURE CHAMBER, COMPLETE WITH WAX FIGURES RE-ENACTING SCENES FROM THE FRENCH AUTHOR'S WORKS.

    HOWEVER, THE ODENSE FAIR IS ATTRACTING FEWER PEOPLE THAN AT THE FIRST SEX EXHIBITION, HELD IN COPENHAGEN LAST YEAR, WHICH ATTRACTED 50,000. DANISH NEWSPAPERS DESCRIBED THE LATEST SEX EXHIBITION AS A "FLOP" AND A "CHEAP CIRCUS". THE VERDICT OF MOST VISITORS WAS THAT THE FAIR WAS TAWDRY AND SHABBY, ALTHOUGH SOME SPECTATORS FRANKLY ADMITTED ENJOYING IT.

    THE ARTISTIC DIRECTOR OF THE ODENSE FAIR, MRS ANN BENNET, SPOKE ABOUT THE WORLD-WIDE INTEREST IN THE EXHIBITION.

    SYNOPSIS: VISITORS HAVE BEEN ARRIVING BY LAND, SEA AND AIR AT THE DANISH TOWN OF ODENSE, VENUE FOR THE WORLD'S SECOND SEX FAIR. MOST WERE LURED BY THE PROSPECT WATCHING PUBLIC EXHIBITIONS OF SEXUAL INTERCOURSE.

    THE BIRTHPLACE OF FAIRY TALE WRITER HANS CHRISTIAN ANDERSEN IS SITUATED ONLY 50 YARDS (METRES) FROM THE EXHIBITION HALL, BUT ANDERSEN'S STORIES BEAR NO RESEMBLANCE TO THE ATTRACTIONS ON DISPLAY AT THE FAIR. MAIN INTEREST IS CENTRED ON A NIGHT-CLUB WHERE PAID MODELS PERFORM PUBLIC ACTS OF LOVE-MAKING. THE FAIR'S ARTISTIC DIRECTOR, MRS ANN BENNET, SPOKE ABOUT WORLD-WIDE INTEREST IN THE EXHIBITION.

    TO AVOID TROUBLE WITH POLICE, VISITORS ARE REQUIRED TO JOIN THE NIGHTCLUB 24 HOURS IN ADVANCE.

    THE FAIR - ENTITLED 'SEX FOR THE MILLIONS' - IS BEING HELD FROM MARCH 19 TO 22. HOWEVER IT'S NOT EXPECTED TO ATTRACT AS MANY PEOPLE AS THE FIRST SEX EXHIBITION, HELD IN COPENHAGEN LAST YEAR, WHICH ATTRACTED 50,000. IN THE ODENSE EXHIBITION HALL, VISITORS CAN TAKE THEIR PICK FROM 48 STALLS FEATURING PORNOGRAPHIC PHOTOGRAPHS, SEXUAL AIDS, COLOUR FILMS OF COUPLES COPULATING-WITH SOUND EFFECTS, AND A MARQUIS DE SADE TORTURE CHAMBER. REACTION TO THE FAIR SO FAR HAS MIXED; SOME LIKE IT, WILE OTHERS THINK IT'S TAWDRY AND SHABBY.
