Saturday Kitchen wtf?

Found this while flicking through the channels and there's a woman on there talking about some erotic story she's written and how she's turning it into a "live sex show" - lots of talk about porn, pornos, eroticism etc.
It's frigging half past ten on a Saturday morning. Wtf is going on?
Am I being unreasonable?AIBU

I think it was well talked about. A lot of this stuff goes right over kids heads. Think of the adult humour thats in a panto for example. I really like Alice Levine, though not listened to her podcast or even her radio 1 show for that matter, just through seeing her in various interviews.
Matt however, was a bit of a giggly school kid about it all, so perhaps if he hadn't gone on about it, then it might have not been so prominent.

It is not suitable at all for daytime telly. How can anyone think it is?
Why shouldn't kids be watching Saturday Kitchen? We sometimes bake while it is on and while it may go over the heads of the youngest children it won't go over the heads of 9 years plus. It is bad enough to think they have heard about porn and sex etc via other kids (and they often have even if we think they haven't) but it really does not need normalising via daytime telly that should be family friendly. Bloody BBC.

Of course it's inappropriate. The way porn (and therfore the objectification of predominantly women) has entered the mainstream is worrying. As more women die at the hands of men in "sex games gone wrong", society needs to take a bit of responsibility. Part of that should be not serving up the normalisation of porn on a Saturday morning TV show. Oh and i can be cross about lots of things at the same time... Food banks, misogyny, Brexit. Which is just really given the current climate.

Made me smile. Not quite as you described, OP, and all pretty innocent. They were quite careful with their language.
Did you not hear the Spanish chef say, about himself not the book, that he felt raped? He was quietly corrected, offered a better word and they all moved on without drawing attention to it!!
Far more tricky to explain to a kid than someone going to a fancy dress party as a location... handcuffed to trellis
