Casual Sex and the Entertainment Industry

Has anyone else noticed how casual sex has become with the entertainment industry of tv and the movies and how the actors on the script freak out on the thoughts of nudism, getting naked, or the lifestyle? I can imagine how insecure any 18-year virgin must feel. He/she must feel everyone is having sex but me and there must be something wrong with me. But the mere thoughts of nudism is treated as taboo or treated by the industry so unrealistically that the viewer has no idea what the lifestyle is about. No wonder most people, especially Americans, have such an immature attitude about nudism and are not willing to give it a try.

I agree. Freedom. Loosing the projection of who you are with clothing on

I dont think this is a particularly new thing. I am not convinced the amount of sex in TV or the movies has increased in the last few years, in fact I think we might have seen it starting to decrease in the last couple of years. And I dint have an issue with a programme showing normal sex in context as long as it isnt put in just to grab viewers

I do agree there is an amount of hypocrisy about such things especially in America. Society as a whole has a very puritanical, on the surface, attitude to nudity and sex. Yet it has long been the centre of the world porn industry and back in the day pretty much every US hotel had porn channels direct into rooms.

But when we lived in the US I found the attitude to violence on TV/movies even more worrying. We had cable and our daughter 13-16 at the time could access extremely violent/horror films at any time of day or night with no apparent parental restrictions/guide on the material. Whereas anything with nudity or portraying normal loving sex was restricted post watershed etc. What exactly are we teaching our kids is normal?

Just look at some statistics about girls and women in general being rapped around the world and then you might emphasized why in many cultures still women are protected by ensuring the use of not provoking clothes. When it comes to nudism are basically men the ones who always spoil everything with the inappropriate behavior and immaturity. Unfortunately women are always the ones vulnerable. In this conditions any country will be even close to accept openly nudism g for everybody.

I agree with the points above. Nudists are still often ridiculed and yet tv and films promote sexual nudity in what is often a rather ridiculous way - tearing clothes off each other in a frantic way and tonsil licking! Also emphasis on oral which is fine but I am not surprised young males approach young girls in the wrong way and girls get put off.
In some ways the health and efficiency days of the 50s and 60s had a better attitude and even the more smutty takes such as the Carry On films and some series in the US had a more positive aspect .

I agree 100%. I've been saying this for years. The hypocrisy of Americans is amazing. They are so afraid and judgmental whenever a bare nipple, a bare butt, or a millisecond of a penis is shown. If a celebrity gets caught on vacation, legally nude, in a foreign country, Americans want that person banned from TV and the movies. But, at the same time, Americans love skimpy, sexy outfits that show people almost nude.
But, the worst part is the violence. Americans are so used to and comfortable with seeing any and all kinds of violence on TV and in the movies, that they don't give it a second thought. To me, the sight of a naked person it totally natural and normal. Consenting adults having sex is normal and natural, and essential to continuing the human race. Violence is not. Violence is extremely offensive. We should not be showing this on TV or in the movies. Our children are learning that violence is normal and the human body is not.

Agree 100%, consensual sex between two adults is totally natural and sensitive portrayal of that, in context, cant really do any harm.
In my view the problems with increased viewing of sex, especially amongst the young, comes from the online porn industry. There sex is portrayed in a totally false manner, the women frequently appear to be used and abused, no hint of any relational context, often including some form of violence/force. And freely accessible to anyone with a mobile device.
If you want to look at what is encouraging damaging attitudes to sex and women among young men then look at the porn industry not sex in mainstream TV or movies. Youngsters see far more of it that way.
And dont take this as being necessarily anti porn, it is the unfettered access available to youngsters I have an issue with. To many it is their sex/relationship education.

The thing that amazes me is that the tv proliferates on suggesting all kinds of sexual acts and positions , with nothing left to the imagination, and that is accepted by the American public, including Christians . One the other hand, the act of nudity, "naturism,"| is viewed as deviate, is entirely unacceptable, and must be considered wrong, immoral, sinful, or, just plain weird. I can see various degrees of nudity on the tv, along with my neighbors, but I have to be clothed to take out the garbage. Go figure!
