Numbers Don't Lie

Who cares about moral suitability ?

1) according to a recently news, romance novels for women get frankly more sexual. In those books, there doesn't need to be that period of wooing, the developing of emotions, like those in mother's romance novels. If the heroine sees a guy she wants to sleep with, she's just going to go after him. Since the US's major bookstore Borders began carrying women's erotica in summer 2004, growth has been more than 10%, higher than any other genre of books.
2) when asked, "in your opinion, has the use of profanity in the workplace increased over the last five years?" 54% of 40,000 professinal women said Yes, 29% said No, 17% unsure. (source: WorldWIT Inc., Boulder, Colo.)
3) there's a trend toward ratings creep in the movie industry. Movies used to be rated PG-13 few years ago are now rated PG.
