Sex education films have historically raised much concern due to their combining a controversial subject with a medium believed to have a particularly great influence on its audiences. In this chapter, the role of medicine in the relationship between sex education films and their audiences is explored, using a number of Swedish films from different time periods as examples. The chapter demonstrates that a medical perspective was significant in this relationship, both regarding the context in which audiences viewed the films, and regarding representations and educational address. Reflections are also made concerning the audiences of historical research on sex education films today.
