And so it begins folks. Welcome to Puritan America.
I actually have the Britney video not because I like the song but because I like the video. (I have a thing for flashy videos even if I hate the song). I just watched that video again.
I have seen worse on daytime soaps.
MTV is a cable channel. If you don't want your kids watching MTV then block it.
What has happened to you people? Are you all so sexually repressed that if you see a bit of skin, or someone making out, you feel violated? You have a lot of options- You can turn off the television, or not buy the product. As far as your kids are concerned, once again it goes back to if you had them then you need to spend the time monitoring them. There are some of us adults who live on this planet too and have every right to enjoy these things ... which in my opinion aren't even titillating.
Maybe I am the strange one. I don't find porno arousing ... it's good fun. Good for a laugh, but I don't get turned on. Half naked guys gyrating on stage do not turn me on. A woman shaving her legs in the tub does not turn me on. Seeing people in their underwear does not turn me on.
Actual human contact turns me on. Intelligence. A great smile. Ducatis and 70's Jap bikes or BSAs, Nortons, Triumphs. (Riding Motorcycles is my number one weakness. I'll take a cycle over a man any day.) The smell of leather. Champagne. Watching someone play an instrument for me Etc..
Britney gyrating around in a spangle unitard doesn't make me want to go out and have sexual intercourse. I find what people actually type and say far more offensive than a video.
This place is becoming pedantic and pathetic.
MTV Consigns Racy Videos to Late-Night Rotation

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - In the aftermath of Janet Jackson's controversial Super Bowl breast exposure, MTV has decided that pop tart Britney Spears may be a bit too "Toxic" for daytime tastes.
The music channel, which produced Jackson's notorious halftime duet with Justin Timberlake, said on Monday it has moved six of its racier videos, including Spears' video for her new single, "Toxic," from daytime to late-night rotation.
Record labels for Spears and other artists whose videos were consigned to overnight programming — from 10 p.m. until 6 a.m. — were informed of the move last week, a spokeswoman for the network said.
