Emma Thompson Talks about Her Daughter’s Generation and Porn

In a discussion with Beth Rigby at Sky News about her movie “Good Luck to You Leo Grande”, Emma Thompson talks the female experience of sexuality today versus her experience and her mother’s experience.

[Timecode: 10:36 to 14:39]

Emma Thompson: I think that it’s absolutely true that my mother’s generation had a completely different entry into sort of sexual life compared to my generation… 60s, 70s. I was born in ’59. And then my daughter’s generation. Those three generations of women, it’d be very interesting to do something about the three…

Beth Rigby: But it’s gotten better for your daughter?

ET: I hope so. I mean I think some things have… I think some things are worse… when I hear stories in school about boys and what they expect from girls.

BR: What do you mean?

ET: I mean that the easy access to porn. You know, if you talk to young people about their sexual knowledge and what they expect, and what they think sex is, it can be very disturbing, indeed. And I think can interfere with their sexual development because it’s all been taken away, industrialized and fed back to them in a sort of completely indigestible form.
