NOW that’s in-flight entertainment!

A cheeky documentary about the female orgasm is raising eyebrows among Qantas passengers. The SBS program The Female Orgasm Explained is available for viewing by all international travellers and features excerpts from old porn flicks, graphics and sound effects that would make conservative commuters squirm.

Originally shown on SBS, the French film aims to assist viewers “understand the intricacies of the female orgasm” – and it seems many people are keen to learn.

Qantas spokesman Luke Enright said the program is the most popular on its television channel The Edge and will continue to be screened until November.

Mr Enright said a program synopsis is provided in the in-flight entertainment guide and the channel carries a warning that some of the content is not suitable for children. It also carries an MA rating.

He said crew are able to block content to the seat of unaccompanied minors at the request of parents. However, to block the program cautious parents must read the guide to know it exists.

Sociologist at the University of Wollongong, Dr Michael Flood, said airing the documentary in a public domain was “fascinating but problematic”.

“I think it’s great if children and young people learn about sexual pleasure because most children and only taught about the biology of sex,” he said.

“But I don’t think this documentary is age appropriate and it’s not designed as a sexual education tool.

“There’s a growing sexuality in our culture and perhaps it reflects how sexual material is being made increasingly available.”

MORE ON: the female orgasm explained – the film 

The sexual revolution of the ’70s has allowed women to claim their right to pleasure and to better know their body. However, 40 years later, the female orgasm remains mysterious to a lot of people – both men and women.

Most of us can recall that scene in the movie When Harry Met Sally and Meg Ryan is moaning and groaning having an alleged orgasm. In the movie she is obviously faking it. The movie endeavours to show that women have the ability to confuse or mislead their men into believing that they are actually having an orgasm.

Unfortunately for men, no matter how much they scream or moan, they cannot fake an orgasm – as well, let’s face it, a masculine orgasm is rather messy.

During the 1970s the sexual revolution enabled women the ability to lay claim to a right of pleasure in the bedroom; for the first time in public society, women were able to better understand their own bodies and discover what it actually is that enables/causes the orgasm. However, we are now 40 years since that revolution and for many men the onset and occurrence of feminine orgasm remains a total mystery.
