From May 5th to May 8th 2022, the Tobacco Factory Theatres in Bristol is having performances of "The Family Sex Show".
This show is aimed at children 5 years old and up.
The performers involved get naked.
The discussion with the children is on sex, sexuality and sexual pleasure.

I cannot imagine brining a 5 year old child to a theatre where people will to to her/him about sex and show their naked bodies to her/him.

Am I the crazy one?

Absolutely not!
Hugely concerning.

PutinIsAWarCriminal · 07/04/2022 21:36

On what parallel universe would that ever be okay?

QuebecBagnet · 07/04/2022 21:36

Why does any adult need to get naked infront of small children they’re not related to?

QuebecBagnet · 07/04/2022 21:37

And who has voted yabu?

OutlookStalking · 07/04/2022 21:38

Wow seriously?!

FOJN · 07/04/2022 21:39

No, you are definitely not crazy.

This is grooming in plain sight. Children, 5 years olds, do not need to see unrelated adults naked whilst they talk about sex, sexuality and sexual pleasure.

pintsizeprincess · 07/04/2022 21:45

Omg this is just not appropriate for children at all. Very concerning.

This from their website
Sexual development and behaviour in children starts from birth. It’s important that children are supported in their exploratory development, safely and comfortably. You can see the common stages of sexual development layed out by the NSPCC here.
Dear Lord.

From what I can understand from the promotion, parents can see what the content is before deciding on if it is suitable for children?

Is this some kind of wind up?! I really don't want to believe it's real.

AngelicaElizaAndPeggy · 07/04/2022 21:53

Why would you take your child to that?! Baffling. Hopefully it will make no money because nobody in their right mind would ever go.

garlicandsapphires · 07/04/2022 21:54

I can’t believe this. That glossary of terms!! For young children!! Shock
I’m also a curious about the content and wonder what it covers. I live close, maybe I’ll book a ticket

Babar100 · 07/04/2022 21:55

I really hope this isn’t real!

ofwarren · 07/04/2022 21:56

I read about this on twitter. Its shocking!

FuckeryOmbudsman · 07/04/2022 21:57

It's taking the school PSHE curriculum for that age group and turning it into a show for families.

Those who think it's outrageous/grooming, do you actually know what is on that age group's curriculum and how your school delivers it?

Itwasntmeright · 07/04/2022 21:58

It’s grooming.

garlicandsapphires · 07/04/2022 21:59

Which age group? 5 year olds? I have no knowledge of the curriculum for this age so enlighten me.

MarilynValentine · 07/04/2022 21:59

Christ almighty. This is unbelievable.

TinaYouFatLard · 07/04/2022 22:00

This shit makes me hope we do get nuked soon.

JayAlfredPrufrock · 07/04/2022 22:00

Why? Just why?

Let children be children.


FairlyAntisocial · 07/04/2022 22:00

It's not getting beamed directly into kids brains so get a grip, the info isn't finished yet, it's up to the parent, it'sgot to beat the old Famly Circle booklet I was shown. If you're worried go and see it first, if it's inappropriate no parent will go.

LaPufalina · 07/04/2022 22:00

I'm in Bristol that weekend Grin up for a picket, anyone?
I have a 5yo and this has made me feel a bit sick

garlicandsapphires · 07/04/2022 22:02

No one is going to go twice are they though? You either decide that it looks like a fun night out or…not.
