Fiona Patten, the Australian Sex Party’s president has bared all this month for prostate cancer research. In a feature interview for Australian Hustler magazine this month, called Wet Politics, she agreed to hand over a series of nude snaphots in return for her modelling fee being donated to Australian prostate cancer research. Hustler managing editor, Michael McGregor, will present her with the cheque at the opening ceremony of Townsville Sexpo tomorrow afternoon.
Phwoar! - Just one of the tamer pics from Hustler's 'Wet Politics' feature.
The magazine has billed the profile as a ‘World First Nude Pictorial by a Political Party Leader’
She said she also wanted to use the opportunity to remind Communications Minister, Steven Conroy, that the sexual content of many of the most popular adult web sites was now predominantly amateur material that couples and singles produced and uploaded themselves, often without financial gain. ‘My nude photos are not professionally produced and were taken in the course of having a fun time and if I want to use them to raise money for a worthwhile cause or to satisfy some exhibitionist tendencies or even just for the hell of it – government has no right to interfere with my right to do that’, she said. ‘Its not harming anyone and if people don’t want to see my nude photos they just don’t buy the magazine or open the web site’.
Ms Patten said that even though the government appeared to have gone quiet on the internet filter, it was still a firm ALP commitment. She said that Attorney General Nicola Roxon appeared to be sitting on a reply to the recommendations of the Australian Law Reform Commission on a new classification Act for Australia and that the government’s reply to this enquiry’s findings was integral to the type of internet filtering Australians would be getting. ‘The ALRC recommended legalising X rated films around Australia so that there would not be this ridiculous situation where you can get them legally on the internet but not at the local adult shop’, she said. ‘They also recommended major changes to the Refused Classification category so that 90% of adult websites from overseas would not be caught by the filter’.
The Hustler profile revealed Ms Patten’s love of water and her abilities in the swimming pool. She won seven swimming medals in the 1997 Masters Games and swims up to 20 kms a week. She also revealed how she loves to do radio interviews from the bath. She criticised old rock and rollers like Angry Anderson who has joined the National Party and Peter Garrett who shelled out a quarter of a million dollars of taxpayer’s money on school chaplains. ‘Most of the fan base of these two old rocker’s would be recreational drug users so what do they do? Sign up to political parties that have policies that will send their fans to jail for using the same substances they used at their rock concerts’, she said. “This is unconscionable and a betrayel of the values of many of the people who made them what they are today. I call on both of these guys to repudiate their party’s drug policies and adopt the harm minimisation drug policies of the Sex Party’.
