Power FM's morning sex talk

Power FM has been found in breach of its licence after the breakfast show team held a phone-in about what had "gone wrong during sex" for listeners. One listener complained to Ofcom that the content was not appropriate at that time of day.

The GCap Media station responded to the complaint saying the breakfast team invited callers to phone in with or text their experiences regarding any humiliating incidents they may have experienced when having sex, following an email from a member of the public about the same topic.

Power FM nonetheless accepted that the decision to broadcast these items had been an error of judgment, and that the nature of the discussion was not acceptable at that time of the morning.

Ofcom notes that Power FM admitted its error in broadcasting this item. They also note the steps the broadcaster has taken subsequently to ensure material of this nature is not broadcast when children are particularly likely to be listening.
