Mums Make Porn is a brand new TV show starting tonight to Channel 4 - but what is it all about?

Beginning this evening - Wednesday, March 20 at 10PM - the three-part show will follow four 'ordinary mums' as they explore the world of modern pornography

Described as a "bold and unique three-part" programme, Mums Make Porn will see the parents - Emma, Anita, Sarah, Sarah-Louise - create their own 'alternative' pornographic film

Channel 4 says of the new TV show: "Combining focused journalism with warm and mischievous entertainment, the mums will explore the world of modern pornography to produce their own 12-minute porn film.

"Their mission - to create a film which not only works as pornography but promotes healthy attitudes towards sex and relationships for the next generation. The mums will have the power to show exactly how they want to handle the issues that matter to them most as parents, whether body image, consent, or ethnic diversity."

Working with industry experts, including prolific adult filmmaker and celebrated feminist Erika Lust, the mums will be given all the tools they need to have complete control – from writing and casting, to directing and editing their fully mum-approved pornographic film.

From standing just out of shot on a small porn set to positioning and lighting the ‘adult’ cast on their own production, the mums will fully immerse themselves in every aspect of the porn industry, will face every emotion, and challenge their own morals in the process.

In tonight's first episode, some of the mums find the process harder than others, especially when they start visiting porn sets.

Channel 4 say the series "could not be more relevant" as the UK seeks to bring in laws on how online porn is accessed.

Emma Morgan, Executive Producer of Mums Make Porn said: "We were shocked by the stats about the impact of free mainstream porn online on the younger generation. It was clear that a lot of young people were accessing porn and were being influenced by it.

We felt it has real purpose to do something meaningful to provoke debate and encourage responsible conversations between parents and their children and draw attention to the issue.

"Sometimes actions speak louder than words, and we are very proud of the mums and the film that they made and the messages it conveys."

The first of three episodes air on Wednesday, March 20 at 10PM.

The show then continues Wednesdays on Channel 4 at 10PM.
