So I get these requests on a fairly frequent basis from production companies. Most times I brush them off but from time to time, I get a genuinely interesting one. This could be one of those. If you are between the ages of 15-21, on the cusp of losing your virginity and would like to share your thoughts and experiences and be part of a Channel 4 documentary, have a read of the information below and get in touch with the producers.....
We are currently developing a programme called Virgins (working title). The programme looks at the impact that the increasingly easy access to on-line pornography is having on young people’s attitudes to and experience of sex.
A recent study of 900 16-24 year olds by the University of Plymouth found that one third of respondents felt that pornography had caused problems in their relationships.
This series gets behind the headlines and explores what 15-18 year olds really think about sex. Through the stories of the 16 young people we follow, we’ll hear the real stories about what teenagers think about sex, who and what influences their thinking and what their real experiences are – rather than sensationalist headlines or the glossed up, glamourized images of sex they might see on-line.
Drawing from a variety of young people, all over London we hope to represent the honest, insightful, real voice of young people in the UK.
We want to hear the truth about what you think about sex, relationships and virginity. We'll be following 16 young people over the course of one summer to try and discover the realities of young people's first time.

Please note that if you are under 18 we will need to seek permission from your parent/ legal guardian for you to talk to us about these issues
