Media Release: Sexpo welcomes Tony Abbott

Sexpo Welcomes Tony Abbott: Campaign at Sexpo, not shopping centres

Sexpo Australia has laid out the red carpet for Federal Opposition Leader Tony Abbott after he complained he was missing sex during his election campaign.

“Its an election year, and Mr Abbott thinks sex is one of life’s pleasures, so who better to officially open Brisbane Sexpo on the 4th March,” said Rob Godwin, General Manager Sexpo .

Sexpo is proud to offer Mr Abbott and his entire campaign entourage VIP access to all areas where he can experience and witness all that Queensland’s largest adult lifestyle and sexuality exhibition has to offer.

“We are offering the Federal Opposition Leader the chance to campaign to thousands of his Brisbane constituents, in what has historically been an ALP stronghold.  At the same time he can explain his comments on ‘ironing housewives’ to the majority of Sexpo female patrons and rid himself of his old fashioned image.”

“The Liberal Party can learn something from the Australian Sex Party (ASP) and gain substantial support from being at Sexpo.  The main political parties need to wake up to having a progressive approach to sex and censorship, as seen in the policies of the ASP”

Fiona Patten from the Australian Sex Party has recently contested the former federal treasurer Peter Costello’s seat in the Higgins bi-election, and is a is a long-time anti-censorship activist

“We’ll definitely ensure this leg of his campaign trail will be memorable one!” Mr Godwin concluded.

This year’s Sexpo is being held at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre from March 4th – 7th

Sexpo supports the McGrath Foundation.

More Sexpo ads on the way
Zane Jackson | 19th February 2010 

SEXPO organiser Rob Godwin has warned Ipswich residents have not seen the last of his provocative advertisements, promising more are on the way.

Ipswich residents complained about his first risque billboard, which led to it being pulled down after only three days at its Dinmore site on Brisbane Street.

Despite the disappointment of having the sign taken down earlier this month, Mr Godwin said Ipswich had not seen the last of Sexpo, with more advertisements due in the next few weeks.

“A large proportion of Sexpo visitors come from Ipswich, so we’ll be advertising again in the region soon with lots of mobile billboards and broadcast-approved TV ads,” Mr Gordon said.

“The majority of readers who responded to The Queensland Times website poll and comments were in favour of the sign, so I don’t think people will find it offensive.

“With the billboard, only a minority of people were upset, but unfortunately their views had the sign taken down.”

He said the media coverage of the Ipswich billboard controversy – which even found its way to national breakfast show Sunrise– had given Sexpo welcome publicity.

“Having the free publicity in the press and on TV was definitely a good bonus for us,” he said.

According to the poll run on The Queensland Times website, two thirds of respondents voted “No” when asked if the billboard should be taken down.

The mobile billboards are expected to be driven around Ipswich streets on February 22, ahead of the Sexpo Brisbane event at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre from March 4-7.

Television advertisements are due to hit our screens about the same time.

Sexpo bills itself as a health, sexuality and lifestyle exhibition open to anyone aged 18 and over

Sexpo Billboard – Have your say

By | News Articles | No Comments

sunriseclipComplaints have been receivd regarding a large billboard promoting Sexpo in Ipswich. Part of the problem is that the billboard is located near a school. “It’s certainly attracting a lot of attention” said Sunrise correspondent Michelle Tapper.

Gold Coast Mayor Paul Pisasale says, “Where it’s positioned right in the middle of residential areas, we’ve got school kids ringing up, parents are ringing up, my emails are running hot.” The mayor would like some national standards put in place and that local governments might have some input when these signs are put up.sunrise

What do you think? Is the billboard inappropriate?
