Do They Play Videos Anymore?

Townhall: MTV Knows No Shame Brent Bozell
How raunchy is MTV? Analysts at the Parents Television Council selected one week in March, when MTV goes wild with spring break festivities, including shows titled "Spring Break Survival Guide, "Spring Break Fantasies" and "How to Be a Spring Break Playa." In 171 hours of MTV programming, PTC analysts found 1,548 sexual scenes containing 3,056 depictions of sexual dancing, gesturing or various forms of nudity, and another 2,881 verbal sexual references. That averages out to about 18 physical and 17 verbal references to sex per hour. Imagine your pre-teen watching a "human sundae" competition, where men lick whipped cream placed on women's bodies -- with a cherry for each breast.
