Mtv Skins

MTV’s new show ‘Skins’ is an instant hit — but is it also breaking laws?

A remake of the British show of the same name, ‘Skins’ takes youth sexuality to a level never before seen on television, with sex, drugs, drinking and masturbation galore. And though it’s tamer than the British original, the NY Times reports that MTV executives are scared it could be deemed child pornography.

The executives ordered the producers to make changes to tone down some of the most explicit content.

They are particularly concerned about the third episode of the series, which is to be broadcast Jan. 31. In an early version, a naked 17-year-old actor is shown from behind as he runs down a street. The actor, Jesse Carere, plays Chris, a high school student whose erection — assisted by erectile dysfunction pills — is a punch line throughout the episode.

Child pornography, which the Times reports is defined as “any visual depiction of a minor engaged in sexually explicit conduct” or “a picture of a naked child may constitute illegal child pornography if it is sufficiently sexually suggestive,” is a danger for the show, given that some of its cast is as young as fifteen.
