It will also look at the new demands made of porn stars by producers and the people who control the industry.

It will show the “growing impact that free, easy-to-access porn is having on the lives of adults and kids,” with online porn sites creating more internet traffic than Netflix and Twitter combined.

Series director Philippa Robinson said: “Through the characters we meet, the juxtaposition of stories and the key exchanges, Generation Porn will illustrate how the porn industry exploded and the consequences for all of us.”

Channel 4 said it will also look at the online giants dominating the industry.
