Glee Teen Sex
November 9, 2011 by staff
Glee Teen Sex, As sure as the sky is blue, “family” watchdog groups will protest sex on TV. The U.S.-based Parents Television Council (PTC) is upset over this week’s virginity-losing-themed episode of Glee.
The group slammed the episode (which aired Tuesday) for depicting two young couples – one straight, one gay – having sex for the first time.
“The fact that Glee intends to not only broadcast, but celebrate children having sex is reprehensible,” slammed PTC president Tim Winter in a statement, reports Entertainment Weekly. He was also quick to add that there’s nothing wrong with the fact that a gay couple is involved, they just don’t want (any of) the kids having sex.
“The gender of the high school characters involved is irrelevant. Teen sex is now more prevalent on TV than adult sex and Glee is only playing into that trend. Research proves that television can, and likely will, influence a teen’s decision to become sexually active. Fox knows the show inherently attracts kids; celebrating teen sex constitutes gross recklessness.”
Unlike their fellow watchdog group, The Culture and Media Institute had no qualms in bashing the show for its promotion of hmosxl behaviour. “[Glee has] waged a relentless campaign of liberal propaganda and pushing the boundaries of what’s acceptable on broadcast TV,” the group wrote in an editorial. “[With tonight's episode] the show is now stepping up its campaign of hmosxl promotion.”
But in an interview with TV Line, Chris Colfer (who plays one half of said gay couple) explained that all the hoopla may be for nothing.
“What I thought could be raunchy and over-the-top was just very sweet and emotional. That’s kind of how it is with Glee,” the actor explained. “Ryan [Murphy] will come up and tell me they’re [tackling] this big, sensitive issue and I’ll freak out. But then I have no reason to freak out because it’s always handled really well.”
“I was totally [prepared] to have to do a shirtless scene, or at least wear like a tank [top] or something,” Colfer recalled in reaction to the rather tame nature of the scene. “I even asked if I could wear a tank and they said no.”
“I think having two gay guys having sex on television was enough,” he continued. “They didn’t want to [reveal] a bunch of skin on top of it. I was like, ‘I want to wear a tank! Let me wear a tank!’ [Ultimately], I wore a T-shirt.”
Show creator Murphy told Entertainment Weekly of the episode, “We were talking about it [in the writers' room] like, ‘Why shouldn’t [Kurt and Blaine] lose their virginity at the same time?’ Everybody has seen a straight couple losing their virginity, but has anyone dovetailed the gay and straight stories together and given them equal weight? That seemed like an exciting choice and a new thing.”
