    I know it's quite an old song now, but there's something about it that's been puzzling me for a while. These lines:

    "First I'm gonna take a dive into the water deep
    Until I know I pleased that body (body)"

    At about 2:26 in the video:


    The words "dive", "water" and "deep" are censored for some reason. I figure it's a euphemism for sex, but there are plenty of those in that song, and in many other songs. So why on earth are they censored? I didn't think little kids would find it obvious at all what it means. Anyone have any idea? Thanks in advance

    It should be okay to show tits/penises/vaginas to anyone, regardless of age.

    It should be okay for anyone, regardless of age, to hear swearing.

    Seeing as it's apparently okay for the news to show REAL PEOPLE dying it should be fine for kids to see fake deaths.

    I mean, violent films and games really don't turn kids into violent adults. I've seen people blaming what those two boys did on violent games and porn they had access to, ********. The reason they're so ****** in the head is that they were brought up by awful parents.

    The UK and the US are so backwards with regards to the whole censorship deal.
