I suggest a campaign about ...

sexually obsessed Media

I feel the media has become overly sexualized. These images subtly feed into your subconscious, and nowadays even more worryingly, from a very young age. The media is responsible for provide false promises of a better, more fulfilled life, of money and plentiful sex.

        I agree. I particularly object to sexual scenes in dramas, most of which are totally gratuitous. If I want porn, I'll watch porn. I don't want it as an interlude in a police drama.

        I have recently on three separate occasions on Tv seen two young females in bed together, one giving the other the obvious. Surely this sends out signals to young girls that this is a normal thing for them to do., when coming into adulthood. Do us women really want to watch this on our TV's
        As far as I am concerned this is another one for the males to enjoy. And before any of you males comment on this, just take a moment to think if you would switch off your tv if it were two young boys!

        'Expert' and 'open minded' opinion has always been used to attack anyone trying to see sexual issues as being linked to morality. All sorts of things can be described as natural and human. Self control and consideration are also human. It is not an issue of being a prude. It is having watched what has happened as society has bought into the sexual freedom/fulfilment myth that spurs support for this campaign.
        To simply speak of 'openness' and to dismiss a responsible attitude to sex and it's effects, especially on the young, as 'squemish' or 'prudish' is just emotive imature rhetoric. What does an 'open attitude' mean? That we pretend that contraceptives are 100% effective, that noone will get pregnant or contract venereal disease if we are only less 'squemish' about putting sex in public. And what about abortion? What about the destruction and trauma that extra marital and promiscuous sex can cause and has caused.
        As for 'cutting down teenage pregnancy' the statistics show that whatever 'studies' may be referred to, the reality is that since the introduction of the contraceptive pill and the fantasy that sex could be thought of as simply a natural thing we needn't think twice about there has been a vast growth in unwanted and teenage pregnancy, STD's, Abortions, and associated mental health issues and suicides. These are statistics gathered over decades. Not opinions.

        Sex is human, and from a very young age is already thought about. This is an issue of squeamishness; we are a prudish country who dislike open sexuality.

        The question is should we be ashamed and hide it; or is being open about something natural, human and enjoyable actually better for the mental development of individuals?

        Studies tend to support openess and truthfulness, especially in cutting down teenage pregnancy. Do your research before you back this campaign.
