Sex in the Noughties

Friday, October 30 on M4

In the mid-noughties the world was consumed by an obsession with blogging. In 2004 there were 20 million blogs on the net with a new one started every seven seconds. But the blogs that consistently attracted massive readerships were the anonymous, confessional sex diaries written by women. From Belle De Jour to Bitchy Jones , these incredibly graphic female sex blogs gave an explicit insight into the secret desires of women, revealing what they really wanted in a way that had never been seen before. At the centre of this revolution was a British woman whose own brand of frank sexual confessions were read by millions, creating a publishing sensation in the process. Known as The Girl with a One Track Mind , in this programme she lifts the lid on the secret world of the sex blogger. Sex in the Noughties charts the rise and fall of an online phenomenon that began as a new brand of headline-grabbing clit lit but which ended in a tabloid sting and the public humiliation of the very woman who created it.
