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