TV’s obsession with aberrant sex

Network TV likes sex! Just not within marriage.

That is the conclusion of watchdog Parents Television Council after watching more than 207 hours of “scripted entertainment” on network television.

The glorification of adultery and other aberrant sexual activities (“incest, pedophilia, partner swapping, prostitution, threesomes, transsexuals, bestiality, and necrophilia”) outnumbered reference to married sex by a ratio of 27 to 1 on NBC alone!

And “The Family Hour,” the time slot with the largest audience of young viewers, contained the highest frequency of references to non-married sex (3.9 to 1).

Hollywood’s contempt for morality and marriage is the context for family dysfunction and dissolution.
Divorce cripples the economy and the emotional well-being of millions each year.

If network TV is the purveyor of this assault on marriage, then corporate sponsors must be the pimps.

Maybe if the “owners” of these public companies would stand up at shareholder meetings to express their shock and revulsion at this sexual revolution, we could see a change for good in our society and on our televisions.
