Why is it OK (even celebrated) to show graphic violence, mutilations, beatings, stabbings, shootings, etc. on mainstream TV, but not erotica? Why are death and dismemberment and long dead characters more acceptable than intimacy? There are several running movie series and TV shows that exploit this concept. What is it about scream and terror flicks that people enjoy seeing more than couples playing? Why is it OK for children to watch people cutting each other to pieces? Which is more damaging to society?
