Unsafe Sex in the City

Wed Oct 2, 9-10pm, BBC3

Series two, episode one
What sort of person agrees to get their genitals swabbed on national TV? That’s the question we couldn't help but repeat while watching this grim shock-doc based in two sexual-health clinics in Exeter and Leeds.

All the usual scenarios are there: shame-faced youths recounting their sexual adventures to non-judgmental doctors, non-judgmental doctors asking sexy questions while doing their best not to sound like a three-quid-a-minute hotline, concerned mums expressing outrage at the rampant irresponsibility of today’s youth. By the end, the answer is clear: they’re all idiots. Literally all of the subjects (with the possible exception of the farmer with achy balls) are just so completely stupid that it’s impossible to sympathise.
