“You have trained your mind, your muscles, your fitness, but how much time have you spent developing your skills at what really matters… love?” the headmistress asks on her school’s website.

“Though our courses include both history and modern sexual theory, the emphasis is on how to be a better lover.  Sexual positions, caressing techniques, anatomical features — these are the AISOS disciplines,” she said on the site.  But then adds in a statement that could draw scrutiny from authorities, “And we teach you hands on.”

Ylva-Maria Thompson has opened the world’s first international sex school in Vienna. Anyone over the age of 16 can attend lessons in seduction for £1,400 or about $1,850 in U.S. dollars at Friday’s exchange rate. The first course is to start Jan. 9 and the vacations have already been filled up. Most classes will be held in German.  The school also suggests four special weekend courses for couples.

“At AISOS we want you to develop practical skills that will change not only your life, but also the lives of the people you decide to partner with,” a school representative says. “In short, we teach the art of giving and receiving sexual pleasure.”

The school’s website also suggests to attend classes:

The world’s first school of practical sex. Though our courses include both history and modern sexual theory, the emphasis is on how to be a better lover. Sexual positions, caressing techniques, anatomical features- these are the AISOS disciplines. And we teach you hands on.

The field of education regarding sexual matters is extremely wide. We have concentrated on giving students a basic understanding of the history of sexuality. Every course has a theoretical area, but the focuses for each, is practical exercises.

According to a source, the school is situated in an 18th-century mansion in the countryside, about a half-hour’s drive from Vienna.  The house has been refurnished to suit the “school’s demands and is complete with high-tech teaching rooms and a physics lab.”

Students are expected to live in a mixed dormitory where they can practice their “homework”. They will get a qualification at the end of the course.

The school hed said: “Our core education is not theoretical, but very practical. The emphasis is on how to be a better lover. Sexual positions, caressing techniques, anatomical features. And we teach people hands on. Also available is a brand new annex housing designed to provide cozy living quarters for up to 20 students.”

Melodi Kirsch, School spokesperson, added: “We are confident that the school will be a great success. Ylva-Maria has worked for a long time on this idea and has received much encouragement and interest.”

And the school’s site says:

“Each course is followed by an exam and in order to get your final exam you need to have passed all exams. Contraception will be available at no extra cost.”

Nevertheless, the school has already become controversial in Austria and its adverts have been banned by Austrian TV.

One protester said: “This is wrapped up in a very stylish way but it is just selling sex.”

By the way, it is unclear whether the school plans to open a campus in the United States. [Via Aisos.at and Q13fox.com]
