Norway Is Asking People To Have Sex On TV For An Interesting Reason
In an interesting venture into encouraging a healthier perspective of sex, Norway’s national broadcaster NRK are looking for normal people to have normal people sex on television.
None of the weird romanticized sex we see in movies, or the outlandish and completely body hair free sex seen in porn – actual normal sex that happens every day.
The show, starting in November on NRK’s P3 channel, is called Line fikser kroppen (Line fixes her body). Hosted by Line Elvsåshagen, she will explore issues like body positivity and unrealistic sexpectations.
So the show is on the hunt for some non-shy Norweigans willing to film their totally normal and occasionally awkward sex to be televised to the nation, but all for the greater good.

Elvsåshagen said, “The idea is not to show sexual organs in action but rather to move away from a glorified image and show that sex is a nice and intimate situation that can often be a bit clumsy without being dangerous.”
The show have been searching for willing participants across the country, hanging hundred of posters and working with blogs to find people willing to bare all.
Håkon Moslet, P3’s editorial director, has explained that the new program offers a new narrative not like the one seen in pornography.
“Just showing surgically-enhanced bodies and overly-choreographed sex creates false hopes and misperceptions.We hope that by showing sex in its entirety, rather than just merely as penetration, we can provide the target group with the right approach.”
Studies have found that men exposed to porn find their partners less sexually attractive and rate themselves as less in love with their partners, and it leads to less sex and to less sexual satisfaction within a relationship. Hopefully this new show could lead the way for other countries to follow in providing their younger generations with real depictions of sex.
