About The Sex Education Show
About the Show
Britain is in a state of sexual meltdown and the most at risk are teenagers. Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are increasing at an epidemic rate; 21 teenagers get pregnant every day but most alarmingly up to two thirds of teens are receiving potentially harmful information about sex via the quantity, accessibility and graphic nature of internet pornography.
Presented by Anna Richardson ( Supersize v Superskinny) The Sex Education Show turns its attention to how easy access to pornography is affecting young people in Britain today.
The series examines how the internet has led to an explosion of accessible sexual content on young people's computers and mobile phones as well as the gradual 'pornification' of the offline world. How is this unlimited access to porn affecting children and adults?
In a world where many young people use porn to learn about sex, picking-up potentially dangerous behaviours and attitudes along the way, it's time to fight back with some fundamental sex and relationship education. Accompanied with a team of sexual health experts, presenter Anna travels to secondary schools across the country to give young people the crucial sex education they are missing.
As part of the series, Anna also goes on an investigative journey looking into the pornification of today's society and the effect it has on the nation.
Anna will also meet people whose lives have been affected by porn and talks to adults and young people alike about their attitudes and experiences. Along with startling new statistics, the show will paint a revealing portrait of sexual behaviour in Britain today.
The series has a dedicated website which generated a huge viewer response and joins the war on porn debate.
