Sex on TV before kids’ bedtime? Parents can now avoid awkward sex scenes with new ‘skip the sex’ button on BBC iPlayer

Apr 01 2019

I am sure I am not alone having experienced awkwardness when suddenly there was sex on TV before kids’ bedtime and having to cover my son’s eyes with my hand to avoid the conversation ‘What is that?’ at a too young age. Well, he’s now almost 13 and has had the talk from myself and the school teachers a couple of times. So he’s in the know but I still exercise some parental guidance when there’s sex on TV just to make sure he understands it without discomfort. Now, BBC iPlayer has introduced a special  ‘skip the sex’ button to spare parents (and who knows, maybe also their prude selves) that awkwardness. That will enable all viewers to avoid having to sit through sex scenes in uncomfortable situations by letting them skip straight through them.
