Sextravaganza gone overboard

Published:Saturday | February 28, 2015 | 12:00 AM

I write to express my deep concerns to the organisers, sponsors and producers of the Wedding Extravaganza held Sunday at Hope Gardens for allowing what can only be described as a public lecture on sex, directed I'm sure, to the brides and groom in attendance but broadcast over a public address system for the benefits of all, including the many children and seniors in attendance.

The female expert seemingly still recovering from seeing Fifty Shades of Grey left nothing to the imagination, as she waxed eloquently, unabashed, about what couples should do and practise to ensure that marital bliss will be around for a long time.

Don't get me wrong: I have no issue with young couples getting free lessons on how to keep the sparks flying forever in their marriage, but l believe it would have been a far better idea if this was done in a one-on-one session or a group discussion held right there at the venue.

Organisers must establish boundaries and rules when dealing with events that are marketed as family entertainment, and ensure that any material presented will meet the high standard expected by families.
