Pornography has moved from the brown paper bag to smartphones, computer screens and popular culture. In the adolescent world of attraction, desire, exploration and love, internet porn is normalised, shared and imitated.
In Love and Sex in an Age of Pornography, we follow a group of young people who, with unflinching honesty and realism, reflect on the influence of porn on their lives. Has it changed their sexual tastes and behaviours? What are the differences between boys and girls in their approach to porn? What is the effect of the porn industry’s move into ever more hardcore scenes?
With exclusive behind the scenes access to the stars and directors at the centre of the international porn industry in Los Angeles and Budapest, the film provides intimate insights into all sides of the porn industry – from the gritty details of porn’s production to its effects on curious youngsters – exposing the bare reality behind the fantasy.
Love and Sex in an Age of Pornography has been broadcast on SBS in Australia, and in 35 other countries.
