“We would have betrayed our series on puberty if we had not touched on topics such as sex and masturbation,” Line Jansrud, presenter of the Newton science programme told NRK.
A previous episode of Newton made news in Norway when a clip of Jansrud painting the location of ovaries and fallopian tubes onto the naked body of a real woman was pulled from Facebook, after apparently violating the site's guidelines.
“Puberty gives you a new body that can make children if you have sex — otherwise known as fucking, shagging, bonking, or making love,” Jansrud begins the latest programme, before taking her audience through the whole process from falling in love to pregnancy.
She then demonstrates how to use half a tomato to practice kissing.
“This tomato here doesn't have a tongue, but it kind of feels like this to make out,” she says.
And attacks her own neck with a vacuum cleaner to demonstrate how love-bites are created.
“It works the same way as a vacuum cleaner. If someone sucks hard enough on your neck, you get bleeding under your skin. A bruise, simply.”
Then she gets onto the serious stuff.
“And now, what everyone starts with sooner or later, but rarely talks about, stroking your own sex parts. To masturbate,” she continues, using rubber models. “Both the clitoris of the girl and the head of the penis on a boy is full of nerves that make it pleasant to touch.”
After lubricating the rubber models she then begins showing how penetrative sex works.
“It's quite slow to start, but after a while, it get a bit quicker. But, for this to be good, it's very important that the vagina is wet inside,” she says. “And for the girl, it is also very important that the clitoris is rubbed.”
She ends by showing off her own pregnant belly, preparing her viewers for the coming big event.
Jansrud has vowed to turning her own experience birth into a Newton episode.
Erling Normann, the show's producer, said that the editors had felt that it would be inappropriate to use real men and women to demonstrate sex.
“We have tried to show the natural body and body parts as far it has been possible,” he said. “This was obviously excluded when we came to the program about sex.”
