Nudity on the rise in prime time TV shows, group says
Sex sells, and nudity … well, it just makes some people feel uncomfortable.
The Parents Television Council spoke out Monday, saying broadcast television has been implying more nudity in prime time shows this season.
The group said, "its researchers found 76 instances where a person appeared nude, with private parts obscured, in prime time last season. It happened on 37 different shows. The group says that's a sharp rise from the 15 instances the networks aired the season before that," according to the Huffington Post.
Huff Post reports that each nudity case appears to be obscured by pixilation or an object.
"It's a lot more suggestive than we've seen in the past," said Melissa Henson, spokeswoman for the group.
