World’s First Sex School Opens in Vienna

If you felt that Sex Ed classes in school were rather inadequate, we have some good news for you. There is now a school that provides courses related exclusively to sexual education, and includes practical instructions as well.

The Austrian International School of Sex (AISOS) will soon be open to students near Vienna. The opening was announced by the headmistress of the school, Ylva Maria Thompson. The vision of the school, according to Thompson, is to teach people how to be better lovers. She goes on to say that people spend time and money on training their mind, muscles, and fitness, but do not spend enough effort on developing their love-making skills. This is precisely what the sex school hopes to address.

Curious to know more? Well, all we know for now is that the school plans to provide theoretical and practical training. Courses such as the history of sex and modern sexual theory will be taught. A major chunk of the course, however, will be ‘hands-on’. An entire semester at the school consists of five full-term and three special intensive courses. The cost for a semester is €1,400 which is roughly $1,850. The first batch is due to start in January and the class has already been filled up. According to the school’s website, classes will take place at an 18th century mansion, which is about a half-hour drive from Vienna. The mansion has been redecorated to suit the needs of the school and is equipped with high-tech teaching rooms.


Does this sound too good to be true? If you’re looking for a catch, there is one. Most of the classes at AISOS, unfortunately, are to be taught in German. So if you don’t know the language, you might find the classes tough. But hey, sex is a universal language right?
