A Danish journalist went all the way to get a scoop on a swingers club near Copenhagen when she had sex with a man she was interviewing.
Louise Fischer, 26, from Denmark, visited Swingland in Ishøj, near Copenhagen, earlier this year as part of a report to cover the sex club reopening after Covid-19 restrictions relaxed in the country.
In the segment, which aired during a Radio 4 morning show in the country in March and has since been shared on Twitter, the radio reporter can be heard moaning as she interviews a male club participant while the pair have sex.
“It’s a big bed in the middle of a room, they invite me up in”, Fisher told BT, adding that they want to show her what to do at the club.
“They want to show me what to do in a Player club, then they start touching my body.”
The reporter said she wasn’t pressured into doing anything by her bosses or the club’s guests and that she hadn’t planned to have sex during the interview, but added: “For me, it’s very natural. It is part of my job to give an insight into a world that not everyone has access to.”
Fisher said the sex helped her interviewees loosen up after they had initially been wary of her microphones.
The two minute segment aired on Danish national radio was shared on social media last week with the caption: ‘Warning: It got hot and wet for both our reporter and the guests.’

During the segment, Fischer is heard asking a man ‘What are you seeing right now?’ The man responds that he was looking at a ‘gorgeous woman who had not tried being in a swinger club before.’
Fischer discussed the reactions to her unorthodox interview style.
“Most of them were very positive, they thought it was brave and cool,” she reportedly said.
“Others think that I’ve crossed a line in journalism.
She later told reporters she had ‘enjoyed it’ but ‘it wasn’t the best sex of her life’ although the men at the club had made her feel like a ‘goddess.’
Her mum ‘thought it was funny’ while her dad thought it was ‘really cool’, she said.
Tina Kragelund, Radio 4’s head of news, told BT that the station approved of the move.
“I feel like I just think it’s cool when the reporters try to make the stories in a different way,” she said.
