BBC3 Unsafe Sex in the City – Screening Starts Tonight!

Unsafe Sex in the City

Unsafe Sex in the City will be screened on BBC3 over four weeks from Wednesday 24th October.  The series was filmed within Manchester Centre for Sexual Health, going behind the scenes of one of the country's busiest sexual health centres.

The series of four, hour-long episodes illustrates many of the challenges and triumphs that the staff face daily with their patients and provides a snapshot of some of the important work that the clinic does.  It follows the stories of several patients who attended the clinic, with concerns and/or symptoms of a range of sexual health issues ranging from Chlamydia to HIV, demonstrating the emotional concerns that come with all sexual health issues.

We decided to get involved in the project to help promote a safer sex message to 16-30 year olds, the target audience of BBC3 and most of the patients we filmed with were from this age group.   From recent reports, it is this age group that has seen the biggest increase in sexually transmitted infections in Britain, an increase that many are referring to as an epidemic.

Our aim is to encourage people to practice safe sex, be screened regularly and dispel some of the sexual health myths.  We're hoping that the series will be a huge success and entertaining, in order to engage with the target group, yet educational.
