This 'Educational' YouTube Video is Totally Not Porn, Apparently [Very, Very NSFW]

For a different perspective on sex.
An "educational" video that's been up on YouTube since March 2015 is drawing some fresh attention after Express UK raised concerns that the clip is basically pornography branded as educational material.
The video, simply titled, "camera inside of the vagina during sex in Missionary Position," shows a man and a woman having sex in missionary position from the perspective of some strategically placed cameras. One camera is placed inside of the woman's vagina, and another is mounted near the base of the man's penis. The video shows the whole process from beginning (there's another camera mounted on the woman's nipple) to end.
Express UK is concerned that this is pornographic material on a site that kids use. But in the video's defense, there is an age restriction of 18+ set by the person who uploaded the clip.
The short clip has been viewed more than 15 million times, and appears to be from a 2006 British documentary series called A Girl's Guide to 21st Century Sex. (Full-length episodes of the documentary series are also up on YouTube, and they're just as graphic.)
YouTube has an anti-porn policy in its user guidelines, but there's a loophole: "A video that contains nudity or other sexual content may be allowed if the primary purpose is educational, documentary, scientific, or artistic, and it isn't gratuitously graphic."
