SUMMARY OF THE REASONS FOR DECISION: 

The magazine 3-Way Orgasms #3 is classified as: 

Objectionable except if the availability of the publication is restricted to persons who 
have attained the age of 18 years. 

The magazine consists of colour photographs with minimal text. The photographs are 
separated into two scenarios, one taking place in a restaurant, the other in a dentist’s 
clinic. The photographs explicitly depict group sexual activities including fellatio, 
cunnilingus, masturbation, and anal and vaginal intercourse. Some of the magazine's 
depictions are considered dehumanising owing to the close focus placed upon the 
participants' genitalia. These are mitigated by the majority of the photographs which 
focus upon the participants' bodies and faces. However, owing to the dehumanising 
nature of some of the photographs and the explicit sexual nature of the photographs, 
the magazine is likely to be injurious to public good unless restricted to an adult 
audience.
