London: While many people may think it`s an activity which should be best learned behind closed doors, an enterprising Swedish schoolmistress thinks otherwise. Ylva-Maria Thompson has opened the world`s first international sex school for teaching the art of being better lovers, the Daily Mail reported.

The Austrian International Sex School in Vienna offers `hands on` lessons in seduction for 1,400 pounds a term. The `headmistress` says anyone over the age of 16 can enrol at `the world`s first college of applied sexuality`.

Students of the course are expected to stay in a co-ed dormitory block where they`re expected to practice their `homework`. By the end of their course, they are awarded a qualification.

The 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`s spokesperson Melodi Kirsch exuded confidence that the school would be a great success.

The school, however, has already turned controversial in Austria with its raunchy advertisments showing a couple making love having already invited a ban by Austrian TV.
