What is Mums Make Porn?
Mums Make Porn is a show that aims to change the way we think about X-rated content online.
Many teenagers’ first knowledge of sex is formed or influenced by what they access on the internet. And this type of material is often very problematic in his depicture of everyone’s favourite intimate time.
Rather than nurturing sexist attitudes in the youth, Mums Make Porn will see a group of ordinary mums create their own teenage-friendly film about the topic.
The parents will write, cast, direct and edit their mum-approved 12-minute pornographic film, which will then air on Channel 4.
Emma Morgan, Executive Producer said of the three-part series:
We were shocked by the stats about the impact of free mainstream porn online on the younger generation. It was clear that a lot of young people were accessing porn and were being influenced by it.
We felt it has real purpose to do something meaningful to provoke debate and encourage responsible conversations between parents and their children and draw attention to the issue
