Today at 60: How our attitudes to sex have changed

Listeners from three different generations talk about changing attitudes towards sex

The Today programme turns 60-years-old in October and we've been asking you to tell us how you think our country has changed in that time.

You've identified everything from our shopping habits to our food to how we communicate with each other - to our attitude to sex.

Philip Larkin told us sex didn't even begin until 1963 - so imagine how it was in 1957.

John Humphrys has been digging into all this, speaking to some listeners representing three generations.
