surprised there's not a thread on this already, its an eye opening programme on CH4, about 3 porn addicts go and meet their idols in LA and they see all sides of porn.

Some interesting topics have come up already.

The blokes are a bit sad and v entitled. Will be interested to see if they change their minds by the end if the programme...

The blokes see it all as a bit of fun. Very depressing [sad

Didn't one of them just say the girls are a commodity to be sold?

Got sucked into watching this after 999 but it's actually really interesting. Especially interesting seeing how the guys are having a change of heart now they are seeing the behind the scenes stuff. The last scene was awful, the girls were so exhausted sad

Johnathan bloke (wheelchair user) will be the hardest nut to crack I think) they seem like decent enough blokes, ordinary blokes.
Not basement dwelling fat pervert would be serial killers like most people would think.
I laughed out loud at that camera man bloke doing a spot of post sex cleaning haha,

Its sad that young bloke is being affected, can't finish , very promiscuous.

The last interview seems to have had a big impact - even on Jonathan! It was AWFUL stuff but good that Vanessa gave them the real scoop.

I watched this and was quite shocked on the English guys attitude but then I am in my late 40's. I didn't think they did seem that nice the guys - the young Essex guy was very misogonist, the chap in a wheelchair was very fixed in his views - no wonder his relationships kept failing. I was pleased that by the end they had changed their attitudes. But gosh such effort just to get 3 men to change. I thought the director was very clever in how s/he had structured their introduction. AWFUL business though and that live show was just awful.

Interestingly, in the Metro this morning the TV critic has complained that this programme didn't find anyone to speak up for porn. hmm

I don't think he was misogynistic, I think he was like 25 thats 2 years older than me and can't functionally sexually? a young man? that must be awful, he must be very insecure....I wonder how many of his 65 ONS stuck around.

The gay bloke didn't seem bad felt a bit bad for him when his illusions were shattered.

Both of the heterosexual men were misogynistic.

The programme gave no coverage at all about how boys and young men are exploited by the sex trade.

I think the wheelchair user was the more out of the 2, I think the young lad a much a victim of the porn industry tbh.

very good point Xenologist,It was quite biased looking back.
