A Danish travel company has come up with a novel solution for reversing the country’s declining birth rates.
The hot-blooded new ad campaign by Spies Rejser suggests wannabe grandmas buy their adult kids an active sun and sex vacation, then be rewarded nine months later with a grandchild.
“You can’t buy love. Or can you?” is the opening gambit of the tongue-in-cheek video, as the camera lingers over a sweat-drenched young woman clearly having the vacation of her life.
Targeting mothers only (Danish fathers perhaps being less interested in grandchildren?), the ad explains that, having been there when her son learned to walk, read and ride a bike, it’s only natural a mom might want to help her son make grandkids — from an appropriate distance.
A Melbourne council will “edit” a mural on a building that depicts people having sex in a giant hamburger.
The mural, commissioned by a Brunswick business owner, contains bodies in various sexual positions, entangled with lettuce, cheese and tomato in a sesame seed bun.
“Art is certainly in the eye of the beholder, but our arts and culture team does think there are a couple of parts of the image that might have crossed a few lines,” the mayor of Moreland, Meghan Hopper, said on Thursday.
The council has asked street artist Mike Maka, AKA Makatron, to edit a few parts of the painting, but says it wants “to keep the public artwork intact”.
Maka said he was willing to work with the council.
“I’ve never been censored, so although it’s not a pleasure to adjust something to please some people’s opinions, I can understand that council wants to find the middle ground,” he said.
Maka plans to produce T-shirts featuring the original uncensored artwork.

Students at the University of Sheffield will be studying a module in masturbation, it has been reported.
Featured as part of the study is “The Art of Masturbation”, a lecture led by English tutor Dr Fabienne Collignon.
Speaking to Sheffield’s student news site The Tab, Dr Collignon said: “The lecture will be on Walt Whitman, Rob Halpern and the deconstruction of masturbation. The last week is called pleasure, self-scrutiny and auto-eroticism. I ended up calling it that because there’s an affinity between literary pleasure, critical self-scrutiny and auto-eroticism.”
Recommended texts for the syllabus include Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick’s Jane Austen and the Masturbating Girl and Walt Whitman: The Spermatic Imagination by Harold Aspiz.
While some students quoted by The Tab seemed apprehensive about the module, the news should please Goedele Liekens: a former Miss Belgium turned sexologist who recently called for a more explicit style of education in the Channel 4
THE father of an 11-year-old boy who was sexually abused by his 20-year-old babysitter has defended her, saying his son saw it as “a notch on his belt.”
But the victim’s father, who had a previous sexual relationship with Hatt, defended her in a UK court.
According to the Swindon Advertiser, Swindon Crown Court heard Hatt abused the boy on a day he was home from school. He has not been identified.
“The boy was laying down, Jade Hatt sat on top of him, sat astride him, took off her clothes and removed his,” prosecutor Hannah Squire said.
“In his words she started bouncing on his private parts. Sexual intercourse took place. According to him it was fairly brief: about 45 seconds. She told him she enjoyed it, he said he had not as it was wrong.”
Ms Squire said Hatt was arrested after the boy’s father noticed a love bite on his son’s neck and texts from Hatt.
Hatt pleaded guilty to sexual activity with a child, but claimed the boy told her he was 15.
Her lawyer, Rob Ross, said Hatt was an immature and troubled woman, having spent two years in hospital with leukaemia as a child.
Reading from a statement from the boy’s father, Mr Ross told the court: “He (the father) said ‘I know he told her he was 15. He looks older than his years. He is sex mad. He would have been fully up for this experience and in many ways sees it as a notch on his belt and is totally unaffected by it.’ One has to say that is a father that knows his son well.”
Judge Tim Mousley QC handed Hatt a suspended sentence on the grounds that she was “immature”, while her victim was unusually mature.
He also ordered Hatt to register as a sex offender for seven years and banned her from unsupervised contact with young boys for two years.
“Having read everything before me, it was quite clear he was a mature 11-year-old and you were an immature 20-year-old, so that narrows the arithmetic age gap between you,” the judge said.
“I have read the comments of the boy’s father to the police where he doesn’t consider you a typical 20-year-old. I have also read what he has said about the effect on the victim.”
