Sex… MTV Style

Tonight MTV launches their brand new show Sex… With Mom and Dad.

What a title.

I’ve got two words about this show: Dr. Drew.

Dr. Drew is the doctor giving advice on the popular radio show¬†Loveline. If you’ve worked with kids for a while, then you’ve probably heard a mention of this racy show. In my city, it aires at 10:00 p.m. on one of the most popular radio channels. It’s truly X-rated. Kids and young adults call up for sexual advice. It’s hard to listen to. If you are a parent or youth worker, I encourage you to listen to it once. You won’t believe your ears.

This is the kind of advice kids are getting when it comes to their sexual decision making.

Now, we can probably expect the same kind of discretion with the new MTV show. This week David’s Youth Culture Window article tells you all you need to know about it. Take a look at that if you haven’t already.

One Response to Sex… MTV Style

  1. You have got to be kidding me! This is ridiculous.

    A large youth ministry (BattleCry/Teen Mania) arranged a mini protest out of MTV’s offices in Time Square a few years ago. Christian teens stood outside with signs that said things like “Stop stealing my innocence” and “You don’t own this generation.” I think it sent an amazing message… but that message needs to be amplified a hundred times over.
