Whose moral morals are they anyway? - sexuality


First there was the sight of Janet Jackson's pastie-adorned breast at the Superbowl, then Nicollet Sheridan's towel-dropping scene on Monday Night Football. A civic outcry followed, deploring the fanatically sexual orientation of advertising, entertainment, and the media as a whole.

As the debates rage, a core cast doubt on must arise: if sex is known to sell anything, who is doing the buying?

Public Relations and marketing gurus give the communal what they crave. If they don't, they are out of a job. How many new spectators will Critical Housewives gain as of the chaos over their ad? Thousands? A million or two? And who enjoyed the gratuitous nudity? Those who "missed it" on Monday Night Football were able to indulge their curiosity as the tape was replayed and replayed ad nauseum. Who in America has not seen it by now? Clearly only the blind and the intermittent solitary person could have missed it.

So what does that say about the existing state of U. S. morality? We are not all depraved, immoral, addicted to pornography, nor inevitably in favor of broadcast sexual displays. We are basically interested associates who are still in a corollary phase to a long chronicle of sexual repression. After the canal jacket of the puritan cycle and the communal constraints of the next 300 years, the pendulum is undulation as it all the time has. It makes a wide arc until gradually habitual to the center.

Those who openly seek to legislate morality would do well to ability to remember the disastrous communal conduct experiment of prohibition, obligatory by a decent and vocal minority, and its eternal bequest of crime, murder, and corruption.
