Airdate: Love and Sex in an Age of Pornography

By David Knox on July 26, 2013 / Filed Under Programming 4

pornNow that we have your attention….

This doco is airing tonight on SBS 2 at 9:40 pm.

This documentary explores teenagers’ emerging sexuality in an age of increasingly accessible and hardcore pornography. While the technology of our times (internet and mobile phones) amplify the availability of pornography, the impact on young people’s sexual development and early relationships is unprecedented. The program tells the stories of young people for whom pornography is normalised, and goes behind the scenes of the porn industry to discover the reality behind the fantasy.

9:40pm Friday July 26 SBS 2

    A & Pertinax, that is true. But SBS One moved their sex programming to Thursday nights after 11pm when World News Australia moved up an hour. Now they’re doing two nights across two channels. I’m not sure there’s enough naughty programs to go around so many channels!?

    It was SBS1’s naughty Friday night originally.

    There was a report on US college students recently that argued media was making too much out of the porn and hookup culture and its affects.

    Only around 20% were hooking up with multiple partners in a 12 month period, not that different from what uni students have always done.

    @ Stan

    SBS used to have naughty Friday nights. The ABC got the idea presumably from them. This was back when SBS had one channel. That said I like the new tradition of historical documentaries. Although I guess the beauty of more than one channel is they can have both traditions if they desire it.

    Is SBS2 now taking on ABC2’s naughty Friday nights? So much T&A, not enough time! ;)
