A group of five mothers were so disgusted by porn they found online they decided to make their own X-rated film that they would be happy to show their children.
The women made their adult movie as part of a Channel 4 TV show called Mums Make Porn.
Although they didn’t star in the video themselves, they helped direct and produce it in a bid to create porn that is realistic and promotes positive attitudes towards sex.
The three-part series follows their journey into the adult entertainment industry, which sees one mother so distressed by internet porn she quits the project altogether.
One mother is reduced to tears by the violent, rape-based content they find and another throws up.
At the end of the programme the women show the video to their children.

Sarah Louise is a mother-of-six and works as a beautician in Bolton.
As part of their research, she and her fellow participants were made to watch adult films based on violence, female submission and rape.
The salon owner was so disturbed by what she had watched that she vomited.
Sarah, 40, a wedding photographer from North Wales, cried while watching rape-based content during the mothers’ research portion of the show.

She told the programme: ‘If that was the first time I’d seen anything about sex I’d be petrified. I just thought all of a sudden that I was going to throw up.
‘We need to show kids that there’s something else than this horrible s*** we see on the internet.
‘If my son treated a woman like that I would kick his a*** to kingdom come.
She added: ‘Porn doesn’t represent normal women, the actors and actresses they use mislead kids. They need to realise it’s not normal.’
Writing on Facebook, Sarah Louise was keen to stress she did not star in the film.
She wrote: ‘Firstly let me just clear something up, I haven’t stared in a porn movie, I have helped to produce and direct a film.
‘In an age of technology we wanted to address the fact that teenagers and young adults are Using hard core porn as sex education.
‘The Porn World is dominated primarily by men, so as a group of woman/mums we address our concerns, we provoke conversation into sex education and address topics such as consent, safe sex and equality.’

Sarah Louise added that on a personal note she wanted to address negative stereotypes of what women should look like and said she was ‘extremely proud’ of the finished project.
She wrote: ‘We hope you keep an open mind and watch Wednesday 20th at 10.00pm, episode one, over 18s only.’
The women worked with industry experts and were given all the tools they would need to make the film.
Research shows the majority of children have been exposed to pornography by their early teens, according to statistics from the NSPCC.
Roughly 65 per cent of 15 to 16-year-olds report having seen pornography, as did 28 per cent of 11 to 12-year-olds.
Mums Make Porn will air on Channel 4 on March 20.
