Australian Christians create TV sex show

SYDNEY, May 6 (UPI) -- Australia's Sydney Anglican Media, under the control of the Archbishop Peter Jensen, has created a television show on the Ten Network called Good Sex.

The program features Christian panelists, including "sexologist" Patricia Weerakoon and advertising copywriter Janet Evans, talking with invited guests about orgasms, penis pumps, masturbation, and pornography, The Australian reported Thursday.

The team makes sure to tell viewers that God approves of all sorts of naughty acts, provided they remain inside marriage.

Mark Hadley, director of radio and TV for Anglican Media, said the church had the idea after Ten offered it an 11.30 slot Wednesday nights. "When we looked at the timeslot we said to ourselves there's no way a traditional Christian program is going to work and work well here," Hadley said. "Instead, we did what any producer does. We researched the demographic and looked at the carry-over audience from Sports Tonight. We were looking at men between the ages of 25 and 35. What is it that captures the attention of men in this age group? We thought, hey, we'll put on a program about sex."
