The Sex Education Show

The first six-part series of The Sex Education Show tackled the nation's sexual ignorance and reticence by capturing a wide range of different personal experiences of sexual issues and problems, as well as offering candid advice. The series uncovered the secret sex lives of teenagers as they talk about pornography, abortion, sexual disease, homosexuality, peer pressure and pregnancy. Together with the results of the biggest ever television survey of teenage attitudes to sex, it revealed a striking picture of the real state of sex education in Britain today.
