Sex in the media
I am appalled. Just appalled. I went to the “movie in the park” with some friends, expecting to have a wholesome evening of free entertainment and what did I get? Smut. That’s right. They were showing Indiana Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark. I probably hadn’t seen this movie in over 15 years ( I have seen the third one about a hundred times, I have a thing for Sean Connery). As I watched this movie, I started to remember things here and there, but the things I didn’t remember were all the sexual innuendos. Some weren’t innuendos at all, but blatant references to the act of sex. Unbelievable. I mean look at this movie poster, It just screams sex.
#1:Marion: I don’t know what you are doing, but do it faster.
#2:Indiana: It’s not the years, it’s the mileage.
#3:Indiana: There's a big snake in the plane, Jock.
#4:Satipo: Let us hurry. There is nothing to fear here.
Indiana: That's what scares me.
#5:Marion: Well, Jones, at least you haven't forgotten how to show a lady a good time.
#6:Indiana: I never meant to hurt you.
Marion: I was a child. I was in love. It was wrong and you knew it.
Indiana: You knew what you were doing.
#7:Indiana: Bend over and I’ll show ya. (ok, so the actual line was come down here and I’ll show ya, but we all knew what he meant)
You know what I am realizing? I don’t think Indiana Jones is the only movie that this filth has occurred in. I think if we would go back and watch other movies from our childhood, there would be more of the same.
Needless to say I was truly embarrassed. I went with friends from the ward. I really should have left, that is what any other righteous, pure, for the strength of youth pamphlet yielding woman would have done, but I didn’t. I gave in to the pressure of my peers and I stayed.
Here is a picture of the scandalous group.
Don’t I just look miserable? I was. Just miserable.
Next week they are showing The Neverending Story. I may be there just to further my investigation on this theory. There may be a sex scene with Atreyu that I never noticed before. Disgusting.
