Underage And Having Sex

10:00pm Thursday, July 8 on C4

In the second episode, in a close-knit community of young families in south Wales, the mums and dads are concerned that their underage teenagers have started having sex too young. 13-year-old Christopher has been having sex with his girlfriend for a year, despite his mum’s best efforts to stop him. Will a heart-to-heart about her own teenage experiences encourage him to slow things down a bit? 15-year-old Angharad’s parents have just discovered she’s recently lost her virginity, and they’ve grounded her. But they can’t keep her indoors forever.

These programmes offer a frank and uncensored young person’s view of one of Britain’s most controversial dilemmas, as they and their families negotiate the minefield that is underage sex.
