Loose Women’s Nadia Sawalha reveals she’s spoken to her daughter about porn

Nadia Sawalha has revealed that she decided it was the right time to discuss the possibility of boys expecting her to behave like a pornstar during sex with her teenage daughter, Maddie, after a conversation with her stepdaughter.

The topic came about yesterday on Loose Women following on from the discussion the panellists were having about porn, and how more and more women are watching it nowadays than they were before.

Nadia commented: ‘The thing is, there is more porn available. [My husband] Mark always tells the story that when he was a kid, he remembers once a nipple being brought in out of Page 3 of a newspaper, and everyone was running around giggling about it.

‘But now I think that people from a very young age are looking at [porn] on the way to school on the bus.’

Nadia revealed she was hesitant about having the discussion with her 14-year-old daughter Maddie yet, but it was actually her stepdaughter who encouraged the mum-of-two to have the conversation earlier rather than later.

‘[My stepdaughter said] to me “I think it’s a really good idea for you to have the conversation with Maddie quite young.

‘She’s going to be meeting boys… nobody knew what they were doing when we were young, having a good fumble, trying to find out.

‘But a lot of boys are coming with a warped idea of “oh right, this is what happens, that’s what happens [during sex]” because they’ve seen it really graphically in porn’, Nadia added.

From that point she decided to sit Maddie down and explain to her that she does have a choice when it comes to sex and doesn’t have to do anything she doesn’t want to do.

She said she advised Maddie: ‘Boys will think that you’re going to do this, this, this, this, this. You make it very clear to them that you’re not.’

Nadia explained that her reasoning for having the chat is to stop her daughter wrongly thinking that ‘this is what you’re supposed to do’.
