Most Brits think it's an activity best learned behind closed doors.
But an enterprising Swedish schoolmistress thinks otherwise.
Ylva-Maria Thompson has opened the world's first international sex school to teach its students how to be better lovers.
The Austrian International Sex School in Vienna offers 'hands on' lessons in seduction for £1,400 a term.
The 'headmistress' says anyone over the age of 16 can enrol at 'the world's first college of applied sexuality'.
Students live in a mixed sex dormitory block where they're expected to practise their homework.
And at the end of the course, they are awarded a qualification.
The new school head 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.'
School spokesperson Melodi Kirsch 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.'
The school has already been controversial in Austria.
Raunchy adverts showing a couple making love have already been banned by Austrian TV.
One protester said: 'This is wrapped up in a very stylish way but it is just selling sex.'
