The nation’s fairgrounds offer a fine array of hidden – well, sort of – venues for extra-bedroom shenanigans. Just ask 20-yearold bartender Ayla. “The most unusual place I’ve had sex is on a Ferris wheel. It was with an ex-boyfriend at the Royal Show.” Sounds beaut. Did you get away with it? “We got caught by several people.” Did they throw money? “We got a lot of hoots and wolf whistles and dirty looks from parents with children.” Was it uncomfortable? “Not at the time – we were pretty intoxicated. But looking back on it; yes.” Would you do it again? “Probably not, but it’s a good story to tell nowadays.” What about somewhere different next time, like the circus? “I’m scared of clowns.” Come to think of it Ayla, so are we.
