"Can't Talk about Sex": Producers of Children's Television around the World Speak out
Lemish, Dafna
Sex Education: Sexuality, Society and Learning, v11 n3 p267-277 2011
As part of a larger study, this article discusses the views of 135 producers from 65 countries around the world regarding the presentation of sex on quality television for children. The article suggests that overall this topic is silenced because it is perceived as either inappropriate or culturally impossible to deal with in the context of a young audience. And thus, with the exception of some Nordic examples, quality television for children does not offer a healthy alternative to the fare available on commercial television.
