This is 'Adolescent Sex' with a less controversial title. This Australian pressing has a different sleeve design to the other releases. Furthermore, it has a slightly different label compared to the other Australian Release, Catalogue #: "Japan" VPL1-4075 / VPL1 4075.

The front cover has a photo of the group standing, with David Sylvian in the centre holding a sword. The same photo was used to promote 'Adolescent Sex' in the UK. The back of the sleeve is a shade of purple and lists the song titles and group members.
