Norway wants people to have sex on TV… for educational purposes


Leading the way in sexual education, Norway's national broadcaster, NRK, want to show teenagers the honest side of sex.

It is hoped that the show, due to be aired later this year, will provide children aged between 8 and 12 with a healthier perspective on nudity and sex, by showing real life sex scenes.

The programme, Line fikser kroppen, will see host, Line Elvsåshagen, openly discuss issues around body positivity, puberty, and of course, sexual encounters.

She said: “The idea is not to show sexual organs in action but rather to move away from a glorified image and show that sex is a nice and intimate situation that can often be a bit clumsy without being dangerous.”

Producers have put out an open call for couples who are willing to get intimate on camera, but, rather understandably, their efforts have not proved successful thus far. 

In an attempt to raise the profile of their search, the show has hung posters around the country and has made contact with a number of blogs.

P3's editorial director, Håkon Moslet, said the new programme offers a more realistic narrative to that seen in pornography:

“Just showing surgically-enhanced bodies and overly-choreographed sex creates false hopes and misperceptions.”

“We hope that by showing sex in its entirety, rather than just merely as penetration, we can provide the target group with the right approach.”
