It is before dinner in just a little meeting room through the Hampton Community Centre, in Melbourne’s suburban south. A dozen women, sitting around a square dining are chatting, rapid-fire, about sex. There are several “p” terms: pornography, pleasure, penis. But this is nothing at all unusual. These females constantly mention sex. They are generally intercourse educators: experts in explaining intercourse and relationships to kids and adolescents, utilized by state schools, fancy individual schools and conservative Catholic schools.
