Teen sex on ‘Glee’ sparking controversy | Fox
In the third season of ‘Glee’ there is an episode where two couples from McKinley High lose their virginity . This did not please the parents’ association at all, who did not see it as acceptable for a series to show teenagers having sexual relations.
According to the president of the Parents Television Council, Tim Winter, “The fact that ‘Glee’ shows children having sex is reprehensible. Teen sex is now more common on TV than adult sex, and ‘Glee’ reflects just that trend. The research proves that television is a conditioning factor that influences adolescents and their decision to become sexually active. Fox knows that its series appeals to children and that it shows teen sex is grossly reckless.”
The series starring Tom Hardy also created controversy. From the beginning of the program, the incestuous relationship between Delaney and his stepsister Zilpha Geary is shown. However, the scene that created criticism and rejection was one from season 4, where, between flashbacks and hallucinations, Zilpha is shown having sex with a being with her face covered by a strange mask.
