Movie Info

Sexy Baby is the first documentary film to put faces to a seismic cultural shift: the cyber age is creating a new sexual landscape. While doing research for the film, we had intimate and candid conversations with kids in middle school classrooms, suburban shopping malls, nightclubs, college dorms, and even conducted an informal roundtable during a high school house party. While chronicling trends among small town and big city kids, we discovered this: Having pubic hair is considered unattractive … More

Critic Reviews for Sexy Baby

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (7) | Rotten (3)

This raises more issues than it can possibly consider in depth, but the filmmakers' ambition is admirable, as is their refusal to draw simple conclusions about any of the subjects.

Unevenly structured, the segments differ greatly in length and relevance.

The reality-cable-style approach tends to overstay its welcome and lessen the impact of each portrait, especially when it comes to New Yorker Winnifred's teen dramatics.

Top Critic

This scattershot investigation of the effects of Internet pornography on female behavior only ruffles the surface of a complex issue, one that demands a much larger sample than three white, educated women.

There might be something new to say about sex after all, and it's said in Sexy Baby, a snazzily edited documentary by Jill Bauer and Ronna Gradus.

Village Voice
Top Critic

An inquisitive and engaging documentary that attempts to sift through shifting mores and the sexual saturation of mass media, to determine the toll this seeming increase in titillation is taking on America.

Provocative docu questions media's impact on girls' image.

Full Review… | November 7, 2012
Common Sense Media

Hopefully those who see the film will find it one that stimulates serious discussion about women and the pressures they face regarding sexuality, and that it doesn't wind up as yet another source of titillation for voyeuristic viewers.

Full Review… | October 24, 2012

Disorganized, poorly conceptualized documentary says porn and sexual imagery have become mainstream, but then forgets to say, "Oh, and here's what it might mean." Or maybe it just says it vaguely and badly.

Film Journal International

What Sexy Baby lacks in the way of sophisticated filmmaking it compensates for with an earnest insistence on open dialogue.

Audience Reviews for Sexy Baby


At-times interesting and sincere examination on a first-person level of how social networking and easy accessibility to sexual images via the internet affects the minds and self-image of kids and young adults. Twenty years ago, pornography was more of a fringe interest that had to be actively acquired and usually only adults had the access (buy magazine at store, order video with credit card). Today, porn stars have crossed into the mainstream discussion and some are household names, from Jenna Jameson to Sasha Grey. Parents have a much more difficult task at shielding their kids from too much too soon.

This docu concentrates on three people. The least interesting story is that of a 22-year old recent beauty queen and current elementary teacher who decides she wants a labiaplasty, surgery to "correct" her genitalia. She exemplifies the pressure to look perfect but we don't learn much more of relevance. Then we follow adult entertainer Tabitha Cash who has several interesting observations about the changes she's seen in the industry and what she will be like as a mother, now that she is trying to get pregnant (with her husband, zing!) Unfortunately the pregnancy becomes the focus during her second half, and I don't know who watching this movie cares about seeing her show her ultrasound video to her family. Then the brunt of the docu follows the metamorphosis of a precocious 12-year-old girl who when introduced writes plays decrying the sexualization of women in rap songs, but over the course of 2 years wears shorter and shorter skirts and posts a few provocative photographs of herself online. Facebook is rather convincingly targeted as often a bad influence, creating a world where kids feel the need to be more than themselves and where gaining and keeping friends equates to competition. Her story is the most revealing, but I have some misgivings about the methods of the filmmakers. It's just too convenient that their young feminist poster-girl subject begins to be influenced in exactly the way they would hope. This covers a time span of 2 years with some very intimate moments captured - how could they get so lucky? Were they filming 10 other kids at the same time who all got chucked into the trash because they didn't represent what they were after? Some questions worth considering.

At any rate, the docu brings up some important topics that all parents will encounter sooner or later concerning the raising of their children in the Digital Age. A lamentable lack of focus and problematic assembly prevents that message from scoring a direct hit.
