LONDON — U.K. TV Channel 4 has put together a slate of programs for its "Real Sex Seaon" focusing on how porn effects British citizens’ sex lives.

The channel will air a mix of reality shows and documentaries, including “Date My Porn Star,” that lets a trio of porn fans see their favorite stars first hand and how the adult industry works.

According to the Mirror, Channel 4 executives wanted to see "if it is possible for them to relate to the stars as fully-formed people or whether their porn obsession has fundamentally altered their perception of the opposite sex.”

The Channel’s website promo for the show says, “The growth of pornography — legal porn now accounts for a third of global internet traffic — is having a massive impact on the sex lives of Britons. From young men who have grown up consuming porn and are now addicted to it on such a scale that they are struggling to lead normal lives, to couples who feel the pressure of ‘having sex like a porn star’ so much that they’ve simply stopped doing it. The Real Sex Season aims to reclaim sex from the airbrushed, surgically enhanced, depilated, gymnastic fantasies and celebrate the joy of real sex.”

Even more serious matter is explored on a documentary about how sexual imagery affects teenagers.  And former Loaded “lad mag” editor Martin Daubney debuts his film “Porn On The Teenage Brain” that also looks at how young people consume explicit material and how it will affect their lives and social interactions.

Another documentary called “Virgins,” talks to young people about sexual relationships in a world obsessed with perfect bodies and where sex  acts in porn are considered the norm.

And in a “Real Sex Season” episode called “The Week the Women Came,” U.K. psychosexual therapist Trudy Hannington coaches women on how to improve their lacking sex lives.

The Channel also takes a tongue-in-cheek look at sex movies in “The Golden Rules of Porn.”

"The aim of this season is to get a healthy perspective on sex, Channel 4’s Ralph Lee, said. “We live in world where pornography, fantasy and fetish are being considered the norm by many and we want to be very un-British and talk about what really goes on in Britain's bedrooms."
