Opposite Messages About Sex

Reported by Melanie - September 7, 2004 -

At 1:25 p.m. ET today (September 7, 2004) on Your World w/Linda Vester, Vester interviewed Genevieve Wood of the Family Research Council. They discussed a study about television viewing and teen sex published in the September issue of Pediatrics magazine. (For the life of me, I can't find a website for Pediatrics magazine, but here's a Reuters article about it.)

The study shows that teens who view television programs with "sexual content," such as Friends and Sex in the City, tend to engage in sexual activity at an earlier age than those who don't watch such programs. Vester, Wood, and the audience members were all appauled.

Then, at 1:57 p.m. ET, Vester reported that model Heidi Klum had taken out a two million dollar insurance policy on her legs. During Vester's report, very sexy video aired of Klum strutting down a runway wearing underwear at what looked like a Victoria's Secret fashion show. Then Fox aired another picture showing a man bending down holding one of Klum's shoes, as she stood above him, at which point Vester said something like "lucky guy, huh?"

COMMENT: So which is it Fox, are you against showing "sexual content" or not?
