PTC Trashes Glee as "Reckless" for Teen Sex Depiction

by at . Comments

Glee will take on the topic of teenage sex tonight, airing an episode titled "The First Time" for the reason you might expect: two couples will share their first sexual experience with each other.

In response, the Parents Television Council has issued a statement condemning the storylines, which will center around Blaine and Kurt, Rachel and Finn.

“The fact that Glee intends to not only broadcast, but celebrate children having sex is reprehensible,” said PTC president Tim Winter. “The gender of the high school characters involved is irrelevant. Teen sex is now more prevalent on TV than adult sex and Glee is only playing into that trend. Research proves that television is a teen sexual super peer that can, and likely will, influence a teen’s decision to become sexually active. Fox knows the show inherently attracts kids; celebrating teen sex constitutes gross recklessness.”

This isn't the first time the PTC has called out Glee for sensationalizing sex.

What do you think? Is it wrong to air a storyline based on teenagers having intercourse?

The PTC is made up of prudish idiots. Teens are sexual beings, so it's not wrong for them to have sex. All sexual beings have the right to express and explore their sexuality, as long as they're not prepubescent. Besides, the actors in the TV show aren't even really teenagers. They're adults in their twenties.

I agree. I'm 19 and a virgin and have watched lots of shows that have sex, drugs, and alcohol, but none of those shows ever made me want to have sex, or go reckless with drugs/drinking. I mean I watch glee, but I also watch(ed) MTV's Skins, Degrassi (tng), Bad Girls Club, The Real World, Jersey Shore but that doesn't mean Snooki is my role model and I want to go do what she does. It all depends on whether the person wants to or not, not the show. Not airing this episode isn't going to make a diference, you're not saving anyone.
