Oz MP calls for ban on sexy music clips from daytime TV

By Super Admin

Melbourne, Jan 29 (ANI): A federal Labor MP is calling for ban on sexually explicit music videos from daytime TV to protect kids from exposure to sexual imagery.

Labor MP Amanda Rishworth cited the video for Sexy Bitch by David Guetta and Akon as an example and said that it was unacceptable that such graphic clips were being broadcast on morning television, reports the Courier Mail.

She has listed a private members motion for debate when Parliament resumes next week calling for the review and development of "appropriate standards and guidelines" covering broadcasters, publishers and advertisers.

Rishworth said that analysis of music videos has shown women appear in around 85 per cent of all clips "not as singers but as a sexualised backdrop."

"Children are consuming sexualised images of women and girls on a daily basis," she wrote on The Punch website.

"Parents are often alarmed when they see the sort of music video clips on TV every Saturday morning, screened in programs clearly aimed at children and teenagers," she added. (ANI)
