Gonzo / is about teenage boys and porn – specifically, how often they watch it, who they watch it with, and why.
In Gonzo, four teenage boys will get up close and personal to candidly reveal their relationship with porn. They’ll divulge alarming and uncensored perspectives that will make your jaw drop, as we delve into a squeamish – but long overdue – conversation about how internet porn is affecting adolescent boys.
Set to be our most talked-about show of the year, Gonzo lays bare the facts of modern life in the age of instant access to ‘adults-only’ zones. We suggest you leave your preconceptions at the door as Gonzo / pulls back the covers on teenage boys and porn.' (Production summary)
