"A Florida State University study reported that a typical prime-time hour (of television) contains an average of 1.6 references to intercourse, 1.2 references to prostitution and rape, 4.7 sexual innuendoes, 1.8 kisses, and 1 suggestive gesture. In all, TV characters talk about sex or display sexual behavior 15 times an hour, or once every four minutes."
