Keep your condoms out of our sitcoms

Does this control-freaky, erotomaniac government have nothing better to do with its time? Government monitors sex scenes on television:

The Government could this week order television chiefs to include more references to condoms and sexually transmitted diseases in their story lines.

Gillian Merron, the Public Health Minister, said it is important that young people watch realistic and responsible portrayals of contraception. Officials will reveal that they have analysed popular TV shows and concluded that not enough sex scenes feature the characters discussing contraception.

They will say that "careful" analysis of 350 episodes of soap operas and comedies show that only seven per cent of sex scenes include a discussion between the characters about safe sex.


Is there no area of life, no lacuna of peace where we cannot escape their perverse depredations?

Perhaps some connection here with a former Home Secretary's spouse thinking it was ok to get the taxpayer to fund his rental of pornographic videos?

I'll blog on the fact that they don't seem to get the connection between this stuff and the sexualisation of children.
