‘Why is sex rated more strictly than violence in American media?' What consequences do we fear from sexual content versus violent content? Does sex make us more uncomfortable than violence? Is it legitimate to argue that violent content does not affect our behaviour but sexual content does? Is rating films a form of censorship? And if so, what do we want to gain from it?Join the conversation!
