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.

Examples

#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.

I know that I am not the only one thinking that maybe, just maybe, Angie just has a dirty mind.

See, I probably never would have noticed such atrocities (given my pure and unscathed mind) if it wasnt for Angie whispering the filth in my ear between giggles (she didnt mention the giggles did she?). Seriously, I dont think I will ever be the same.

It was well worth the corruption, don't ya think?
