Sex On TV: A Biennial Report to the Kaiser Family Foundation 2001

On February 6th, 2001, the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation released their second installment in a biennial study on sex on television. The report examines "both the amount and the nature of television's sexual messages, paying special attention to references to such issues as contraception, safer sex, and waiting to have sex." Analyzing 1,114 programs from the 1999-00 television season across ten different channels, representing broadcast, public, cable, independent, and premium channels, the report documents changes that have occurred in the presentation of sexual messages on television in the last two years. The study is offered both in its entirety and in a twelve-page executive summary. Not surprisingly, the report finds a significant increase in sexual content over the last two years -- even though data did not include episodes of Temptation Island.
