I don’t think that’s going to change my view on things. My issue it with the amount there is on tv, the best thing for me is to know people feel the same but thanks
I don't watch tv but feel as you do. It's just ridiculous. We all understand how it works already!
I fast forward thru any sex scenes I run across in Netflix or Prime.....sometimes I just stop watching all together out of disgust.
Does the director really feel we are so dumb that this needs to be spelled out numerous times?

As an asexual myself, i don’t really have a problem with watching nudity and sex(as long as it’s not too graphic). Porn however gives me high anxiety.

i freak out at porn. i saw my first porn when i was 17 and my hands started shaking and i told my friend to turn off the video. it felt SOO wrong watching people who dont necessarily want to have sex bare their bodies with someone on video for money.

i do not watch that shit AT ALL

Can someone help me, I need to hear that someone feels the same. I understand this is an opinion and many people see otherwise. I know all the different views on it I’ve seen them all. I am 20 years old I really have a serious problem when it comes to sex and nudity on tv, even the words make me uncomfortable! I’ve had bad experiences as a child due to the amount of sex in films, I’ve had numerous events that add to my phobia of sex and nudity, I have a boyfriend now that treats me perfectly. All I ever wanted. But the issue we have that gets worse every day is his understanding for my issue. It’s ruining our relationship... he loves to watch adult comedy films and I have it in my head that everything he wants to watch is because it contains naked women, it’s like an overwhelming jealousy. It’s been a long time now and he does know what I don’t like to see, although he will still constantly put on the film/tv show until I react and go into this foul mood. He will offer me films that are very clear to have sex or nudity in. And tell me “this is a good film” when the description tells us there’s sex. He doesn’t mean it but it still upsets me I don’t know how to stop him. It’s not a big deal to some although to me it eats me up inside. I feel like there’s no escape, no one gets it! My anger towards sex and nudity on tv is horrendous. I can go into a rant about it and not stop, I find the amount of female nudity degrading. I find it unnecessary and it makes me super uncomfortable, I’m walking on eggshells just watching him scroll through films. I get angry as soon as he shows interest in a film before he even puts it on. I read the parents guide and my day is ruined before even watching it. My hatred is so strong, I can’t watch anything with my family or with my boyfriend anymore because I constantly have to look at naked woman or watch people have sex, if I was in the mood to see that I would search for it on the internet!!!! I know that sex is part of every day life and that’s what people do, but it’s shown far too much, and I feel it needs to be left more a mystery. I don’t feel sex is special I don’t feel that my boyfriend can only look at my body, I want to be the only girl he sees but he can just go on the tv and there it is a woman with big perky boobs and a perfect body. Some things are just meant to be left for the bedroom, but you can just see it on tv, its not special. It’s not romantic. It’s off putting and ruins so many good story lines because of the discomfort it causes. How do you watch any films these days with your family without getting bombarded with porn. I don’t want my vagina to have a heart beat whilst sat with my dad. And yes that can happen, and I HATE IT! I don’t know if that sounds weird? But it does happen, and it makes it worse for me as then I feel like my boyfriend is definitely getting turned on by these nude woman and sexual scenes on tv. I get the same thing with his mates sending him anything to do with a naked female or sex. It’s unbearable !!!! I just want to know if anyone can relate to this and the amount of anger towards it? When he tells me a good film he watched once, I search the parents guide and straight away I see how much sex and nude woman there is in it and I feel sick I’m angry at him and we weren’t even together then!!! I know it’s ridiculous, I know lots of people won’t understand. But this is me and this is my feelings, I need support but I don’t know where to look for it.
I am so so happy I found this thread! I wondered if I was crazy, too damaged or even ruined because I share these thoughts and feelings about nudity online and on tv. It angers me to no end that women are shown naked or nearly naked so much. I can say its certainly not equal objectivacation of women and men.. It angers me that some women allow and are so eager themselves to be objectified as just sexual objects and toys for men's pleasure. Why do women wish to degrade themselves and other women. It drives me crazy to have to sit and watch a movie or show or even music videos with naked women or nearly naked women with my husband viewing these women as well. I morally feel like it is wrong for my husband to see any other woman but me naked. Women on tv are real women, just because its on tv does not make me feel any better or see things differently. I've come not watch movies with female nudity which means my husband does not either. I've often asked him, "how would you feel if you had to sit with me and be bombarded with naked unrealistic male bodies on screen?" I dont think its wrong to set boundaries or standards in a marriage. I told my husband before marriage that this behavior will not be tolerated. It was a deal breaker for me because I find it so incredibly disrespectful and disgusting to view other women in such an intimate state when a man is married and in a committed relationship. I have no desire to even look at or notice other men and I expect the same from my partner. I think more women need to speak up and stand up for themselves, their relationship and other women to say this culture of objectifying and putting unrealistic expectations of how women look should out there in our faces needs to stop! For our daughters, for our future generations of women...we need to start a revolution!

Yes I feel the abundance of pornography on the internet is ridiculous, corrupting and destroying relationships.

I feel there are very real crimes behind a lot of it - including intimidation, sexual assault and perhaps worse.

I don't like porn, it is degrading to the women and doesn't turn me on. I've never seen a woman act like they do making love compared to porn. Making love is enjoyable for both, not just the man.

I could not have said this any better myself. Absolutely spot on. It really angers me how woman are used as sexual objects, and there’s too much female nudity in films and I can’t sit through a film with my boyfriend and watch another woman naked, it’s so unfair and wrong. It takes a lot of confidence to open up to my boyfriend and show him my body, and he can go on tv and see another woman naked so easily, seeing another nude body should be an intimate thing only, not used as MENS entertainment. Theres too many men that look as woman as sexual objects, nearly every girl has experienced this and this is a massive part of the problem because woman’s body’s are shown everywhere like sexual objects, it’s so easy to see and it infuriates me. It’s not ok and it needs to come to an end. Removing sex and nudity from films will not make a difference to people who don’t mind seeing it lives, but it will make a HUGE difference to people that do and there’s enough people that do. Not everyone will speak up because they feel crazy because this is not a problem you hear every day, but it is a real problem and it needs to be sorted.
