ENGLAND (LifeSiteNews) – An English theater company has sparked outrage by staging a sexually explicit show, featuring naked entertainers, for children as young as five.
The Family Sex Show describes itself as a “ show for families about sex and relationships” and a “fun and silly performance about the painfully awkward subject of sex.”
Ailie Debonnaire, the programming and engagement manager at Tobacco Factory Theatres, described the show as “a fun and playful show for adults and children aged five and up, which offers an honest, human sex education that is feminist, queer, non-binary, inclusive, and sex positive.”
“This show can allow audiences of all ages to feel confident about their bodies, their boundaries and their sexual health,” she added.
The show’s website features a content warning while encouraging parents to bring their children.
“There is nakedness yes. At one point in the show, everyone on stage takes their clothes off to the level they feel comfortable to,” reads the show’s FAQ.
But according to the show’s own website, all of the stories are written by and based on the performers’ own personal experiences of sexual relationships.
Pictures of the production show adults simulating sex and a glossary featured on the website teaches children sexually explicit terms.
The show’s FAQ makes it clear that children as young as 5 are welcome, arguing that “sexual development and behaviour starts from birth,” and that it is important for children to be “supported in their exploratory development.”
The entire country has seen what happens when men enter women's sports.
Lia Thomas is a biological male, but he was nonetheless allowed swim against elite female competitors to win an NCAA Freestyle competition, much to the disappointment of those women who had trained so hard to compete.
SIGN THE PETITION TO BAN MALES FROM WOMEN'S SPORTS TODAY
Males have a natural advantage over females in the vast majority of sports, so allowing them to enter women's sports can:
- crush the motivation of the biological girls who have worked hard to compete on a level playing field
- put females into harm's way in contact sports and locker rooms
- deprive women of their right to fairly compete for college scholarships and many other accolades
We all know the spectacle of Lia Thomas defeating those female swimmers was a charade, a mockery of women's sports, but now it's time to do something about it.
Please SIGN this urgent petition calling on members of Congress to pass a law banning the participation of biological males in women's sports.
This is not just about ensuring biological girls and women can compete fairly and win in their chosen sports, but it's also a major safety issue in contact sports and the dangerous use of women's locker rooms by gender-confused males.
Some of you will remember Fallon Fox, the male MMA fighter who claimed to be a woman and left his female opponent concussed and with a fractured skull.
Fox later announced on social media that he enjoys "smacking up" women who "talk transphobic nonsense."
Any reasonable person knows men shouldn't compete against women, but some people are too politically correct to take a stand and protect girls and women from this madness.
It's now time to join the growing pushback against the gender-confused lobby and their dangerous beliefs that have literally left some female competitors in the hospital.
Please SIGN this common sense petition calling on Congress to ban all males from competing in women's sport.
Future generations will look back with gratitude on those who stood on the right side of history, defending women from these very confused males.
Nothing less than a federal ban on biological males forcing their way into women's sport is enough, so this petition will be sent to all members of Congress demanding legislative action.

The sexually explicit show generated a massive backlash from parents in the UK, including on social media site Mumsnet where one parents commented, “I cannot imagine bringing a five-year-old child to a theatre where people will tell her/him about sex and show their naked bodies to her/him. Am I the crazy one?”
Parents also expressed their concerns on Twitter where one mother, Caroline Farrow tweeted an excerpt from the website’s FAQ where children are encouraged to draw animals masturbating.

Farrow also launched a petition on CitizenGO. The petition describes the show as “nothing more than a blatant and extremely concerning attempt to sexualise children prematurely” and calls for theaters to “immediately scrap the production”.
The petition has already gathered nearly 39,000 signatures, and performances of The Family Sex Show in Bristol and Norwich have been canceled following backlash and complaints from concerned parents. The protests were described as “threats and abuse at staff” in an article by the British Broadcasting Corporation; the BBC did not, however, present examples of the alleged threats and abuse.
The Tobacco Factory Theatre in Bristol made similar claims when announcing the cancellation on their website.
“Performances of The Family Sex Show by ThisEgg at Tobacco Factory Theatres have been cancelled. This is due to the unprecedented threats and abuse directed at our building and team,” the venue stated before offering refunds for already booked tickets.
Josie Dale-Jones, a member of the ThisEgg production company, defended the show.
“We wanted to make something that came at the topics of relationships and sex in a light way,” she said.
According to the Daily Mail, concerned parents have not ruled out protesting outside Bath’s Theatre Royal where performances of The Family Sex Show are still planned for next month.
