The Sex Education Show vs Pornography is a spin-off from The Sex Education Show. Both programmes aim to educate teenagers in all aspects of sex, sexuality and related issues. They are presented in a way which is light and accessible. The Sex Education Show vs Pornography focuses solely on issues related to pornography and teenagers. The issues relate to how porn can affect teenagers perceptions of sex. Issues covered include: body image (i.e. how porn stars bodies are "perfect" and non-porn stars bodies are not), health issues and the type of porn watched.
The programme has a light format. Anna Richardson is a chirpy and bubbly host but she also grates after a while. There's also a few laughs to be had at the teenagers embarrassment at seeing real nudity (via video link). There's also some good information offered to those not in the know. I think this programme could be a useful teaching aid in school and its certainly better than some of the boring dross I had to sit through.
The programme I'm sure will be useful to both teenagers and parents. However, I found it to be quite negative and biased towards the porn industry. The porn industry may have its faults and it should be borne in mind that porn is aimed and largely watched by adults. This programme (or certainly Anna Richardson) seemed to be saying that compulsory filtering or prevention (to stop children accessing porn) should be in-built in computers; this would surely be a burden to adults who wish to view such material. An interview also took place with a male and female couple who star in porn. Unfortunately, the interviews seemed to be constructed in a way as to only focus on the negative aspects (e.g. long hours, hard work, a "straight" male said he is gay for pay etc) rather than some of the positives (e.g. good or at least decent wage, flexible(ish) working days, etc).
Summary: Not a bad programme. Obviously of use to uninformed teenagers and parents but is let down by being to biased.
