Live online orgy promised

Brit voyeurs chomping at the bit

Porn voyeurs are in for a treat next month, with the promise of a record-breaking online orgy.

A Californian pornographer is planning to Webcast a "copulation marathon", MSNBC.com reports. The antics will revolve around five ladies, who aim to break the world record of having sex with 620 consecutive partners.

The shagathon is being billed as an AIDs awareness day, although sexperts remain sceptical about this claim. They warn that, despite using precautions like condoms and antibiotics, the event is likely to thrust the participants into risky situations, and fail to get across the safe sex message.

It is not clear how long the event is likely to take, and no URL or date was given for those wishing to watch.

The announcement coincided with a report claiming to have uncovered the truth about cyber Brits - that we are a nation of porn addicts and gamblers. More than a third of surfers - 3.6 million - log on to porn sites, and two million Brits now visit gambling sites, the survey by NetValue claims. The full version of this story can be found here. ®
