TV Pick Of The Day: How Straight Am I?

Two-part series in which Tyger Drew-Honey explores the blurring boundaries of 21st-century sexuality and sexism, delving head first into the thought-provoking lives of young adults today.

In the first film, Tyger meets some of the trailblazers who are forging a brave new world of sexual expression amidst a backdrop of elite sex parties and the nu-drag scene, as he tries to be open-minded about his own sexuality.

In which Tyger travels the country (Brighton, London, Manchester, Peterhead) and finds some young people being ever-so open-minded and modern (Peterhead, not so much).

Tyger tellls his dad, 'Britain's best known male porn star'; 'According to the internet , 79& of people think I'm gay - why is that?'

'Cause you look like Tom Daley.'

His dad wees on the bonfire a little by pointing out none of this is really new, and there's always been 'swingers'.

Or, as we used to call them in more innocent times, 'perverts'.

The banal liberal platitudes come thick and fast; 'It's not what you love, it's who you love.' etc.

Well, it's certainly something to think about.
