    This is nothing!! You can see much more out on friday night in the city centre. All types of media use sex to sell, so I wouldn't say they are showing too much. I'd say they're showing too little! I've seen music videos a lot worse, so am surprised you're using this as your example.
    The one I want to use would get me banned.

    They're called Sunblock though.

    What does it really matter, everyone with internet has access to pornography, showing a little flesh in music videos isn't going to harm anyone nor is it uncomfortable to watch with people around, have you never watched a film like Love Actually or American Pie with parents?
    Anyway these girls in music videos have worked really hard getting a nice body, ate very little and maybe even paying alot of money for a boob job so they deserve to show it off.

    Your lucky you don't get these sort of music videos around here. :rolleyes:


    THE SHOW THEM IN THE DAYTIME! Did you just choose to forget that fact? That's the thing. Nobody would give a toss if it was shown after 10pm. *grabs you by the collar* Think about the kiddies, chum... think about the kiddies... you were one once.

    It's an attention seeker at times. I'm not a prude but I do think sometimes it's a marketing tool to help get the artist to have as much attention as possible, if it means for the girls to be near-naked then so be it. No different from metal bands, especially goths, where the singer is female and has a cute face but are musically generic, but then people will read in the magazines and think that they're nice so will give their music a listen and talk to friends about them.

    I am trying to avoid watching them now. I worry that subconsiously I'll be comparing myself to these women and that they are damaging my fragile little self esteem.

    Same reason I avoid magazines like Heat, Closer etc. with all their "Celeb beach bodies!!" "Kerry gains 10 pounds!" stuff. It's not good for us girls. Less obsession with women's bodies, please
    well said...i agree

    i avoid looking at most forms of media that could potentially have this effect on me...i'm more interested in the music itself than the video and as for celeb magazines, i'm pleased to say it's of little interest to me what celebrities with a completely different lifestyle to me (with personal trainers and time to work out and money to get surgery etc) look like compared to me

    That's different, you "usually" watch porn for sexual reasons, you wouldn't watch a music video to get off, same way you wouldn't watch a TV series like Weeds where nudity is on occasionally to have a ****.
    Maybe before when porn wasn't as easy to get, but now a 7 year old with internet access can watch it.

    So I would mind watching porn while parents are in the same room, but I wouldn't care if it was sex scene in a non-porn film.
    So why are music videos pornographic then?

    :yep:

    Thing is, it's so hard to avoid. Everywhere you look there's images of perfect women, trying to sell something, from deodorant to shoes to jewellery, all with flawless skin and perfect teeth and no cellulite and pert boobs... and you know that the picture has been photoshopped to death.. but you've still seen it, it's still registered in your brain. There's really no escape. It's in adverts on tv, at bus stops, on the sides of buses, on posters, magazines, and most of all, music videos.
    But I really do like videos. It's nice to have something to look at, and they can totally enhance the music. I just wish they weren't filled with unatainable images of half-naked women all the time. :mad: I mean when was the last time a young female artist made a video which DIDN'T involve rolling around on a bed/strutting around or dancing around in skimpy clothes to show off her body? Everyone's at it - new artists eg. Lady Gaga, Keri Hilson, Pixie Lott, Saturdays etc... and old, eg. Madonna, Kylie, Mariah Carey...
    It's not necessary! I know that sex sells and everything, but I wish they could just let the music do the talking.
