The Australian Sex Party is an Australian political party founded in 2009 in response to concerns over the influence of religion in politics. The party was born out of an adult-industry lobby group, the Eros Association.
Its leader, Fiona Patten, is the association's CEO, while the party's registered officer, Robert Swan, is the association's media director.
Patten describes the party as a "civil libertarian alternative". Patten is a veteran campaigner on issues such as censorship, equality and discrimination.
