As a recent latecomer to watching reruns of the TV shows, "Friends" and "Seinfeld", I have been rather putoff by the free sexual conversation and behavior on these wildly popular, long-running programs. Even given they are deeply entertaining and well written, acted, and directed, it saddens me if life is actually so sexually free among our young people and therein often subject to comedic focus.
I have two children now in their late twenties who grew up with these shows which I did not censor or watch with them and it didn't apparently do them any moral harm, but still............it just is troublesome to me and that was a generation ago. Lots of other good subject matter and humor in both.
But let us be careful with our current generation and give them some backbone about the beauty, joy, and privacy of their sexual formation and guidance. I am with the school if they forge forward with disallowing too much freedom during still tender years.
