Parent and teachers were shocked when a video shown at a high school graduation was interrupted by a clip of a student having sex.

The film shown during the morning ceremony at Gammel Hellerup Gymnasium in Denmark was supposed to celebrate pupils' experiences with pictures from their school life.

Instead, the video watched by 450 graduates, teachers and family members was interrupted by graphic footage of a male student having sex with a woman who does not attend the school.

Principal Jorgen Rasmussen said the school in Hellerup, north of Copenhagen, would not seek charges against the student and the young woman depicted in the video, which appeared to have been shot with a hidden camera.

But the outraged head said he would like to see charges filed against whoever made the film, according to The Copenhagen Post.

He encouraged the lovers in the video to make sure the amateur filmmaker was taken to court.

'We've agreed not to press charges,' Mr Rasmussen told Berlingske Nyhedsbureau.

'However, we have encouraged the two young people who appear in the video to proceed with the case. It is really them, and not the school, that was violated.'

Mr Rasmussen said the school knows the identity of the culprits and they have been punished by the school, but he would not elaborate on their identities or the disciplinary action.

The woman, who may not even be aware the footage exists, would have a solid case if she took legal action, media law expert Oluf Jørgensen told Politiken newspaper.

'Because the footage was shown at the morning ceremony, we’re talking about the disclosure of material that is offensive and that is a clear violation of the criminal law,' said Mr Jørgensen.

'Revealing sexual activity is a very serious violation and if the woman in the video files a civil suit demanding financial retribution, she’ll most likely win.'

Jeppe Hald, the national project leader for family planning association Sex og Samfund, said the broadcasting of a sex clip at such an occasion showed that the lines between private and public have been blurred thanks to the proliferation of reality television.

'When they see people have sex on TV, it influences the limits of what they want to show of their private and intimate life,' he said.
