Johannesburg - The Touchdown show on Metro FM was pulled from the national radio station's schedule after the drive time show team conducted an interview on Wednesday with erotica writer and sex coach Jade Zwane which was deemed too explicit by management, reports Times Live.

The Touchdown team lead by T-Bo Touch (real name Thabo Molefe), Refiloe Mpakanyane and sports reader Joe Mann reportedly received SMSes from station programming manager Caren Olsen to cut the interview short, as it was getting too "steamy".

Zwane, the author of erotic novel aDICKted, was talking about the importance of masturbation and parents' role in educating their children about sex.

'Not suspended'

"I explained [to listeners] how my talk with my parents from puberty encouraged me to wait," Zwane told Times Live.

"I didn't feel like I needed to rush into it because I had read books about it, and my mom took me to a gynae before my first sexual experience, which was at 23 years."

Zwane advocates "sexual liberation" for women on her website and offers sexual coaching, advice and workshops.

Metro FM spokesperson Happy Ngidi confirmed that The Touchdown show and its three presenters have been pulled from the schedule, while "internal process" were ongoing.

"They are not suspended, but are just not scheduled, because of the unfortunate interview that was of an explicit nature. It goes against the broadcast policy and our mandate as a station," she said.

DJ Sbu will host the show until the station's investigation into the alleged misconduct is concluded.
