During a meeting of the parliamentary social affairs committee yesterday, which discussed sexual education, educators expressed their disappointment to what students were exposed to during Xarabank’s programme aired two weeks ago, which discussed sex as well as the Fifty Shades of Grey movie.

Proving more so, even the educator himself doesn’t believe in the current sexual education process.

“Fifty Shades of Grey has sold 100 million copies worldwide, and like other national and international television shows, we took the decision to discuss the book’s content, the same week the film was released. The topic was discussed by experts in this field: a sexual educator, a psychiatrist, a doctor, a lawyer and a priest who is also a clinical psychologist.We did not, in any way, promote sexual violence; rather, the panel agreed that the sexual relationship pictured in the film could very well be abuse even if it was consensual,” Mr Azzopardi said.

The presenter said that the programme was restricted to adult viewers, and this was made clear both during promotional spots and throughout the programme.
