Yep, they even have sex Down Under!, 15 June 2002
Author: uds3 from Longmont, Colorado

Major cringe factor here even in the 70's. Supposedly (and hoped for) outrageous semi-doco on the sexual habits of Aussies. (As if they differ much from any other country!)

I recall seeing this at a bucks party for one of my college friends in the early 80's! As I recall, there was way more action in the bedrooms upstairs than on the TV screen.

The "novel" pitch was using each letter of the alphabet to introduce a new point of discussion. "P" for penis, "o" for orgasm - I don't actually recall anyone having one that night!....least not DOWNSTAIRS!
