    This post gets back on theme in a minute.

    Despite a lot of public demonisation of youth 90% of them are just fine and genuinely want to learn. The problem is that the nasty 10% seem to have a much greater effect mainly due to schools having no effective ,immediate punishments to deal with them.

    As for the teenage pregnancy issues my experience, despite living on the border of the area with the highest teen pregnancy rate in Europe., which is backed by statistic, is that up to very recently the problem was diminishing somewhat. My theory is that the increased use of condoms due to the threat of HIV/AIDS, better education, better oportunities and increased general affluence meant teenage pregnancy rates dropped.

    However ,sadly , now AIDS/HIV is the hot sexual topic of the last generation, it's what their mums and dads are telling them to avoid and frankly teens often rebel against the conventions of the previous generation. Now teen pregnancy is on the rise again.

    It's interesting that sexually liberated Scandinavia where porn is freely available to buy has one of the lowest teenage pregnancy rates in the world. So much for the tenuous link posed in the Sex Education show between these two issues .

    Exactly, French! You've hit the nail on the head. Scandinavia is much more open about sex and, therefore, kids know what they need to do to avoid prenancy and STIs. I really wish Britain would adopt a similar attitude. We're far too stuffy and easily embarrassed in this country.

    It's obvious that this is part of what the Sex Education Show was trying to accomplish, but I think it actually had the opposite effect to a degree, because they vilified the things that people actually enjoy, such as porn and sex toys. If they embraced the fact that for many people, these things are harmless and pleasurable, they might have gone further to acheiving their goal.

    I hated that show, it was like a televised version of the Daily Mail! It was reactionary and did not challange any issues only crush them.

    It done my head in when they challanged the computer companies for not doing enough to stop porn. If you buy your kid a computer it is YOUR responsibility to ensure they are safe. If I left a car engine running and a child drove off and crashed I wouldn't blame the car manufacturer, dealership or any one else. It would be MY responsibility!

    I think the issues discussed were sometimes valid but scaring parents into being paranoid will help no one.

    WTF is normal anyway!? I can't stand that as premise for a show...unless they immediately start by saying "there isn't really any such thing as normal" I can't see this being a positive thing for young uns at all!

    On a crappy channel four programming note. Has anyone else seen and been annoyed by embarassing bodies? That made me cross! A young woman with a flat (and beautftiul) chest went on the show and the only thing that jackass Dr Christian said was something along the lines of "yes it is too flat I can definately see why you want a boob job" then refered her to a plastic surgeon! Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr! How is that in any way good for the patient?

    Ugh, both those shows annoy the hell out of me.

    The adds for 'am I normal' have all these kind of silly questions like "how much should a 14 year old masturbate?". However the fuck much you want, what is there some kind of barrier where you go "oops, one more wank and I'll turn into a mushroom!"? No! Unless the show consists of someone going "yes!" and then the credits rolling, it's all just an exercise in futility, excluding 'weird' people by trying to slap a definition on what normal is, all the while claiming to be attempting to make young people feel better about all that crazy stuff they get up to.

    The problem with many of these problems is that they tread the very fine line between education and gawking at the misfits and vadges.

    They can be a useful intro to some and demystify the whole sex thing but I agree if not pulled off properly it can be thinly veiled porn for cheap laughs.

    This made me laugh and smile! For a start calling the show "embarassing bodies" is borderline offensive...it's suggests there's something to be ashamed of!

    There's no way they can possibly cover every perverted thing that teenagers think about and do so there's always going to be people watching thinking "fuck! they didn't even mention X therefore I'm a freak"

    Now excuse me while I turn into a mushroom!
