357. Warning... sex, nudity and sexual violence

I read an interesting article about the warnings preceding series and films prior to broadcasting or streaming to our screen. Bridgerton, yet another costume drama, available in Netflix, warns viewers that it contains scenes of sex, nudity and sexual violence. This post is not about the value of having yet another inconsequential costume drama on our screen, nor about formulaic writing and filming, although both of these would be interesting themes for later. What this post is about is wondering what may be wrong with a society where nudity, which has nothing wrong with it, can make it into the same warning as sexual violence, both accompanied by sex which should be a more positive than negative experience when practised consensually. It seems that, to some people, a female breast and a rape are equally upsetting, or at least, Netflix thinks so. This is nonsensical, and I think it is high time we tackle real societal problems (sexual exploitation) and leave alone invented ones (nudity)
