Sex FM

Highly acclaimed and now in its twelfth year

A unique, exciting and interactive forum theatre production designed to build confidence and engage the thoughts and feelings of young people on the complex issues of - teenage pregnancy, negotiating sexual relationships and sexually transmitted infections.

SexFM places year 9/10 pupils at the heart of the action, empowering them to take part in active discussion to explore how choices and decisions affect their lives and relationships.

In a maze of peer pressure and media misinformation, we challenge the fiction and reveal the facts.

Most importantly, we provide an entertaining forum for young people to rehearse their negotiation and communication skills and to make informed, responsible and healthy choices.

“I have learnt to be confident and say no to something I don't want. The play made me realise the pressure that can be put on you””
