3some

I have always thought that the target audience (and the primary audience that watches it) is teenagers. I just wonder how far they can/will go to top a threesome...


Group urges CW stations not to air 'Gossip Girl'
Nov. 4, 2009, 4:13 PM EST

NEW YORK (AP) -- On-air promos for a sexual threesome on an upcoming episode of "Gossip Girl" have spurred the Parents Television Council to ask affiliates of the CW network to pre-empt the show.

Airing the teen tryst, which is being teased in an ad as a "3SOME," is "reckless and irresponsible," said PTC president Tim Winter in a statement Wednesday. The threesome involves three main characters in the show but they are not identified in the promos.

The PTC has urged CW affiliate stations not to air the episode, scheduled for Nov. 9.

In a letter to the affiliates, Winter asked: "Will you now be complicit in establishing a precedent and expectation that teenagers should engage in behaviors heretofore associated primarily with adult films?"

This is not the first time the PTC has complained about the sexy prep-school soap, which Winter said is "expressly targeted to impressionable teenagers."

In July 2008, the organization spoke out against a racy marketing campaign for its new season. Ads showed intimate moments between the show's characters (on a couch, in the sack or apparently skinny-dipping), accompanied by headlines like "A Nasty Piece of Work" and "Mind-Blowingly Inappropriate."

"CW has been defending graphic content on 'Gossip Girl' by asserting that they don't target teenagers," Winters said Wednesday. "Such a claim doesn't even pass the 'laugh test.'"

CW spokesman Paul McGuire said the target audience for "Gossip Girl" is the 18-to-34 demographic, with a median viewer age of 27 years old. The network had no comment on PTC's complaint, he said.

The Parents Television Council describes itself as a nonpartisan education group advocating responsible entertainment.

lol, it does seem to me that a lot more adults watch Gossip Girl and it does not surprise me that the median age for viewers is 27. My wife and I watch it and we're in our 30s...

I don't watch the show, but I'm going to take a wild guess that one of two scenarios play out in the episode -

1) 3some participants weigh the pros and cons throughout the episode and decide against it.

2) After not considering the pros and cons and doing it anyway, participants woefully regret it.

So before PTC gets all bent out shape, there may be a moral to the story. It's probably just an updated version of the girl who lost her virginity to the wrong boy.

The real question is whether it will be a devil's threesome or a girl girl boy threesome

This show isn't 7 Heaven where it's marketed as some real life good moral teaching show. "Gossip" is in the title, that should tell you something there. And I'm pretty sure this isn't the first time a threesome has been at least implied on "teen" TV shows.

Why has the PTC not come out against the violence of 24 or the immorality of WifeSwap?

and THIS is what the media thinks we should be concerned about?

the only thing that concerns me is these teenage dipshits getting pregnant and bringing more dipshits into this already overpopulated with dipshits world. they can fuck all they want for all i care, just dont make more babies.

I've never watched an episode, but I think I will now, depending on what kind of threesome it is, of course.

If I've learned anything this week it's that my porn lingo vocabulary is lost in translation.

I mean, if someone was always asking you to embrace the Holy Trinity, what would you think it meant?
