Let’s talk about sex, baby.

With sex education becoming mandatory for all secondary school children in England from September 2020, Channel 4 are sending a cast of famous parents and their children back to the classroom.

The celebrity parents to take part in Let’s Talk About Sex include Danny Dyer and his 11-year-old daughter Sunnie and Ulrika Jonsson and 14-year-old Martha.

The documentary series will screen the most outrageous, unexpected and unintentionally hilarious sex education videos both past and present to a diverse range of pupils and parents.

Others sharing their candid opinions and fascinating anecdotes of their own personal experiences are Miriam Margolyes OBE, Stephen Mangan, Alastair and Grace Campbell, Phil Wang, London Hughes and Kieron Richardson.

Together they’ll discuss what works and what doesn’t and what they think should be on the syllabus next year as they have some very frank conversations about what each of them knows about sex.

From watching how sex educators have handled erections and managed menstruation to how they’ve dealt with the LGBT+ issues and the challenges of masturbation – no subject will be off limits.

From September 2020 relationship and sex education will for the first time become mandatory for all school children in England. To coincide with this, next year the government plans to release new statutory guidance to replace the current “outdated” regulations last updated at the turn of the century in 2000.

The informative and entertaining series hopes to examine what young people have been taught to date and uncover exactly what school children today do and don’t know about relationships and sex.

Let’s Talk About Sex will start on Channel 4 on Friday 5th April at 10pm and run for three weeks.
