Too hot to handle -- why TV3 is toning down its raunchy sex guide

TV3 boss Ben Frow has revealed the series A Girl's Guide to 21st Century Sex shown during the week is a "toned-down version" of the UK show edited specifically for Ireland.
With "Girl Guide Telly Fury" among the headlines prompted by the airing during the week, and even Vincent Browne seeming a bit shaken when his debate show came on right after, heaven knows what the original Channel 5 version looked like.
Incidentally, the series was commissioned by Ben when he worked in the UK.
"If it stops one STD or unwanted pregnancy, I'll be happy," Ben told me.
TV3 will be happy too, as ratings for the station last Tuesday night went through the roof.
