In this documentary, the relationship that Britain’s teenagers have with the internet and adult sites, is explored. Britain has one of the highest percentages of sexually active teens in Europe. One in three boys around the age of sixteen, regularly visit adult sites and a third of fifteen year olds have had sex. This is the first generation of teenagers that cannot remember a time before the internet. It is very easy for young teenagers to access porn on the internet. For some it is casual but for others, as seen in the documentary, it is an addiction. Teens can look up porn of many different types and in limitless quantities. Girls are asked to give their opinions on the issue and whether they watch watch it or how they feel about it.
Many say they don’t care if their boyfriends watch it but if it is happening all the time they begin to wonder why they aren’t good enough for their boyfriends and whether they are expected to be like the girls on the internet. The girls mention they have friends who film themselves with their girlfriends and show it to their friends. They agree that porn has led to guys not knowing how to respect girls. Even so, one in five girls in Britain admit to sometimes viewing adult sites. This documentary takes us to the lives of different people’s lives and how they are affected by their addiction to girls on the internet.

Watched the first 10 minutes of the documentary and I have two comments.
First, the documentary is dated. The guys are watching porn from the dial-up connection days where sites had less content in lower resolution than that is available today.
Second, while the tone of the documentary suggest that each teen is sick in their addiction to porn, the two teens I watched mentioned “intimacy” and “in your mind” which made me wonder if the actual illness is the mass outbreak of timid-ism rather than porn. Would these teens subscribe to porn had they been better prepared on how to behave and engage with others they found attractive.
