Is anyone watching this programme about teenage virgins on C4?

It's making me a bit depressed. That Ryan was awful, putting the pressure on Ellis. I don't want my dds to grow up!

If I had my way all teenagers would still be virgins. I was still playing with my pippa dolls when I was 16!

i am appalled and fascinated in equal measures....

yes teenagers haven't changed in 20 years but this porn stuff is starting them off on the wrong foot surely...

grin I only put away my Sindys when I went to High School. I know times change but God this all makes me feel old and out of touch, and I'm only early 40s.

Do they still make pippa dolls?

I can't believe Ellis is going through all this on camera, I would rather have died when I was a teenager than have all this splashed about, so to speak.

or be filmed asking your son if he knows where a clitoris is....

I know!

Porn, porn, bloody porn. They're obsessed with it.

Love the boy who refused a blow job because 'you got to kiss your mum with that mouth'!

The pressure on young people is terrible. And so true what the girls were saying-if you have sex you get called a slag, if you don't you're frigid. Crap.

I watched it and if anything its made me more worried for dd. When I was 14/15, I was teased for being a frigid virgin but it genuinely didn't bother me because I knew I wasn't ready for sex and it was no ones business but mine. I worry now about instilling that knowledge and belief in dd so that she is confident in the knowledge that it really doesn't matter what people think of your sex life, its your own.

I must have been very lucky but virginity, or lack of, wasn't something that really was an issue when I was my mid teens. I had a good set of friends, female and male, and yes, there were boyfriends and 'heavy petting' (cringe) but no pressure about sex; either about
when to do it or how to do it.

Then again, this was long before the Internet, so the nearest those boyfriends got to porn was a furtive shufty through their older brothers' Hustlers and the like.
