Is There a Lot of Sex on American TV?
For the past 10 years, I was a regular viewer of porn.

4 weeks ago, I quit (and I feel much better for having done it).

Since then, I've been trying to keep my mind pure and avoid exposing myself to other forms of entertainment that disrespect women, but it's difficult. It seems like I can't turn to one of the popular TV channels for longer than 5 minutes before some sort of sexual innuendo will be introduced.

For instance, take late-night talk shows. It seems like any time there's a female guest, the host will first compliment her on how great she looks (which seems somewhat innocent), but then he'll make some crass joke about how revealing her clothing is. The guest isn't innocent either, as she'll usually have some story a few minutes later during the interview that's in some way related to sex.

A couple months ago, a famous actress (Jennifer Love Hewitt) engaged in a rather lengthy conversation about decorating her private parts with jewelry. That is NOT an exaggeration. Just now, Kate Beckinsale made a joke about spreading her legs open in one of her new movies. The other day, Kristen Stewart explained her cigarette addiction by saying that she "wanted something in [her] mouth".

Was it always like this? Maybe I just didn't notice because my mind was always flooded with sex (in the form of porn) until now. Before that, I grew up in the 1980s and maybe I was too young to notice, but I have noticed more and more sex everywhere in popular culture since then. Was it like this in the 1950s, 1960s, or 1970s?

I miss the innocent "I Love Lucy" and "Brady Bunch" reruns I watched when I was a kid. (I know they're still out there, but it seems programming like that is more obscure now.)

I'm kind of disgusted by all the gay men kissing on TV. Hot lesbians, no problem. Anything else gay, not so much. Just my opinion.

yes sex has lost it's appeal now. it used to be steamy hot just at a sight of a women showing some skin. now it's boobies flying everywhere with butts on thongs full display. it's getting a little gross.

You have developed a sexual hang up.

You've gone from one extreme to the other.

Re: Is There a Lot of Sex on American TV?
Seems like sex has been downgraded to a casual event, for sure. But TV to me has turned into more of a fear and psycho-murder fest, I tell ya. SO many shows about cops, death, crime, people hunting down bad guys. I especially am sick of the crazed psycho killer stuff, and the way they just keep reusing the same scenarios till you could write the shows yourself. TV has really gone down the hole. I watch very very little of it, and try to avoid violent programs any more - I feel that they program us to perceive the world and others as more violent than they probably are - not counting the power juggling war mongers that seem to lead many countries these days.
