ABC Kids recently aired the raunchy comedy show Luke Warm Sex, which left viewers both amused and confused.
It was spotted by 3AW radio host DeeDee Dunleavy on ABC’s digital guide, who took to Twitter to share her findings.
She joked: “Something for the kiddies on Foxtel’s ABC Kids Comedy channel …”

The episode was re-run of the 2016 mini-series, which is a documentary-style program hosted by comedian Luke McGregor as he attempts to improve his self-esteem and “get better at sex”.
It should be noted, however, the re-run aired on the combined ABC Kids/Comedy Channel and in a night-time time-slot. ABC recently combined its Comedy and Kids channels as part of a company-wide programming restructure for 2021.
Under the new format, kids shows end at 7:30pm, while comedy shows and more adult-themed programs like Luke Warm Sex are scheduled for the rest of the night.
Nonetheless, seeing the show title Luke Warm Sex beside the ABC Kids logo has left Twitter users bemused.
“We looked, didn’t seem appropriate at all,” said one Twitter user.
“I guess they‘ve got to learn sometime?” said another.
But really, Sharon’s GIF below says it all.
