Sex&violence

  1. 1. Sex andViolenceAlexander TranchemontagneCMS 200Maureen Ebben
  2. 2. Sex & Violence  The purpose of this survey is to try and understand why violence is less censored in the media when compared to sexual acts.  I want to understand if sexual acts bother people more than violent acts, hence the censorship.  I’d also like to learn why sex & violence on TV bother people.
  3. 3. FactsA recent poll conducted by TIME showed that 53% of those polled wanted stricter guidelines of what can be shown. Ina study about media affecting kids, 54% of kids said they have a TV in their room. Inthe same study, 66% of children (aged 10-16) surveyed said that their peers are influenced by the TV. In another study,77% surveyed that said that too much premarital sex is on TV.
  4. 4. Hypothesis I feel that the media shows much more violent acts when compared to sexual acts.  I’d assume watching violent act bothers people more than sexual acts do. I think most people in my age group are okay with the media portraying both acts meaning we watch shows full of them.
  5. 5. Why a survey?I really wanted to figure out what actually offended people so I decide a survey or doing interviews would be the best choices. Doing a survey allowed me to get a lot of peoples opinions in a short time. Getting a pretty good sample wasn’t that difficult either.
  6. 6. Survey Question 1: What is your gender? -male – female Question 2: What age group do you fall under? -12 to 20 -21 to 35 -35 to 45 -46+ Question 3: Seeing which action on TV is more offensive? -sex -violence Question 4: Which action do you see more of on TV? -sex -violence
  7. 7. Survey Question 5: Which action do you think is okay to show on TV? -sex –violence –neither - both Question 6: Describing your reasoning of why you think sex or violence is worse to show on TV compared to the other subject. -Write in an answer. Question 7: Give a reason of your own as to why you think violence is less censored on TV. -Write in an answer.
  8. 8. Age & Gender Gender 12-20:25 21-35:8 Men Women 35-45:12 46+:5 Age 12 to 20 21 to 35Men:29Women:21 35 to 45 46+
  9. 9. Which bothers you more? Sex Violence -This proves my hypothesis wrongSex:39 Violence:11
  10. 10. Which do you see more? Sex Violence -Matches some of my hypothesis -Younger people saw more violence,Sex:22 Violence:28 this may have to do with what they watch.
  11. 11. Which is okay to show? Sex Violence Both NeitherSex:6 -A lot of younger people answered “both”Neither:10Violence:9 -All people aged 46+ answered “neither”Both: 25
  12. 12. Which is worse?  Neither is that bad to show on TV, media doesnt’t affect minds.  Sexual scenes are really uncomfortable to watch.  Violence rarely has any positives.  Both are equally bad and should mostly stay off airwaves.  It depends on how the act is being portrayed.
  13. 13. Why is violence less censored? The media has de-sensitized us from it. Tomake war look great and trick people into enlisting. Is it? / It isn’t. Because it’s less imitable. It’s really not that bad to show on air.
  14. 14. What I’d do differently I would of asked more people, and I’d get a more even sample of ages.  It’dwould been interesting to ask what kind of TV people see that has sex and violence. I should of ask a question that pertained to children’s television.
  15. 15. Conclusion  Nearlyeveryone I surveyed between 12 & 20 are okay with media portraying violence and sex.  Violence is more prominently portrayed.  Sexualscenes make people feel more uncomfortable when compared to violent scenes.  It seems the inclusions of these themes in the media may be a generational gap.
