Deeply concerned about Child Safety in Bristol
1000

MatthewJTaylor · 07/04/2022 21:28

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.

On what parallel universe would that ever be okay?

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

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.

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?

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

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?

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.

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