Series 5 Summary

The fifth series leads with the results of a massive nationwide sex survey revealing the sexual landscape of Britain - what we're doing, who we're doing it with, and how often.

Presenter Anna Richardson brings parents up to date with what their kids really get up to.

The Sex Education roadshow visits schools across Britain answering questions about sex and providing much needed no-nonsense sex education.

There are also films about the sexually invisible - from the blind to people with restricted growth. And the series tackles the thorny topic of sexuality and religion.

    Plus the final set of results are released from the Great British Sex Survey and reveal how age affects what you like doing, with whom, where, and how often.
