PTC Wants Its MTV To Stop "Selling Smut to Children"

The Parents Television Council is pissed off again.

It's releasing a new study, “MTV Smut Peddlers: Targeting Kids with Sex, Drugs and Alcohol,” that claims MTV programming contains far more sex and foul language than anything found on adult-targeted television.

Findings include:

● MTV transmits an average of 9 sexual scenes per hour with approximately 18 sexual depictions and 17 instances of sexual dialogue or innuendo (compared to 5.8 instances of sexual content per hour on the broadcast networks)

● MTV subjects viewers to roughly 8.9 un-bleeped profanities per hour, and an additional 18.3 bleeped profanities per hour (compared to 6.5 uses of foul language per hour on the broadcast networks)

● Music videos contained more foul language and violence than MTV’s series or specials, but MTV’s reality shows had more sexual content than the videos.
 
● MTV special Spring Break Fantasies had the highest sexual content, (32 sexual segments per hour)

Wow! I gotta start watching more MTV. Scha-WING!
