So, MTV was on....and there was a commercial with the words bleeped out in like every other word (it was an advertisment for an upcoming show) and then there was this guy BUTT NAKED blurred out with a black dot over his penis and he's dancing around.

We haven't owned a television in almost six years. I love not having one!

We do not watch TV here,very rarely do we watch it and if the children do they only watch one channel.

My life has been a lot better since we do not watch TV.

Just to clarify....

I watch TV!! LOL...I was just saying that (IMO) that content is to be expected since it IS MTV.

I don't watch TV that often....but if I didn't have it AT ALL...I think I'd go wacko.[/b]
You are preaching to the choir! I love my satellite TV!! Can't live without it!

Main reason I do not watch it anymore. I was turning it over every time I didn't like something,turned out I spent most of my time channel hopping than actually watching anything

I expect that on MTV but have you seen some of the horror movie previews they show on the LOCAL channels during prime time? Freaks me the heck out. I'm scared to let my kids watch Deal or No Deal anymore!

I know it is as easy as changing the channel. I just think it's sad that the media thinks that it takes a penis to get good ratings. Especially when MTV and VH1 and the likes are viewed mostly by teenagers.

It doesn't bother me too much. I just change the channel if it isn't something I want to see.

It is funny though how different other cultures can be. That video on the other thread would probably never be shown in the U.S. Television shows and commercials can be a lot more graphic in other countries.

I wonder how we all became so offended by sex and the human body but yet it is still so acceptable in other countries.
