If you are another TV viewer that has grown tired of those OBNOXIOUS MALE ENHANCEMENT TV commercials, it's time to take action!

Families, young children and most viewers during family hours should not have to be subjected to indecent and offensive commercials. These ads should be reserved to late hours, after 10 pm.

Regulation of Obscenity, Indecency and Profanity

(Indecent material describes sexual organs or activities...Broadcast is patently offensive as measured by contemporary standards for the broadcast medium.)


Title 18 of the United States Code, Section 1464, prohibits the utterance of “any obscene, indecent or profane language by means of radio communication.” Consistent with a subsequent statute and court case, the Commission's rules prohibit the broadcast of indecent material during the period of 6 a.m. and 10 p.m. FCC decisions also prohibit the broadcast of profane material between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m.

The FCC has determined, with the approval of the courts, that there is a reasonable risk that children will be in the audience from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m., local time. Therefore, the FCC prohibits station licensees from broadcasting indecent material during that period.

Material is indecent if, in context, it depicts or describes sexual or excretory organs or activities in terms patently offensive as measured by contemporary community standards for the broadcast medium. In each case, the FCC must determine whether the material describes or depicts sexual or excretory organs or activities and, if so, whether the material is “patently offensive.”

What makes material “profane?”“Profane language” includes those words that are so highly offensive that their mere utterance in the context presented may, in legal terms, amount to a “nuisance.”

The FCC responds when it receives a sufficient amount of complaints.

PLEASE, FILE A COMPLAINT TODAY VIA EMAIL.

How do I file a complaint? The FCC accepts complaints electronically, by letter, email, facsimile or telephone. If possible, your complaint should include the call sign of the station, the community where the station is located (city, state), and the date and time of the broadcast. Although not required, including this information greatly assists the FCC in processing your complaint quickly and efficiently. Your complaint should also contain enough detail about the material broadcast that the FCC can understand the exact words and language used.

Also, you could contact your Congressional representatives (Senate and House).

How about you learning how to change the channel. How about you monitering what your kid may or maynot be watching. I think I will start complaining to Congress about all of the nut wad Preachers on my T.V. all the time. I think preachers should not come on till after midnight, they might be brainwashing little kids.

Use the above information to file a complaint with the FCC.

Studies found herbs sold as male enhancement and no studies found those products WORK.

At least, the women's products WORK!

The FCC is responsible for "clean" family television viewing. ADULTS don't want the commercials.

Bullying is when some people say things such as, "If you don't like it - leave the country...or turn the channel."

Our country was founded on free speech and government representing the people. Most people don't want those commercials on during family viewing hours.

Is there any way you could argue the topic without bashing and name-calling? Do you appear that aggressive and angry in person?

WHEW!

Yes I understand that. However those comercials are on kids stations. I havent seen a preacher on a kids station. So there is a difference. It comes down to money that these stations are making on these ads. Its just not right. Im not going to sit and watch spongebob with my child just to change the channel when commercials come on. That is my time to do my housework. It would just be better if kids stations would be a little more understanding of children's curiosity.

Have you seen the TV ad about the new tiny female vibrator made by the K-Y people? I must be getting really old, because when I was a kid, they didn't even show real women in bra ads -- they used plastic models.

For my part, they can also eliminate around the dinner hour ads for constipation, diarrhea and other disgusting bodily afflictions.

If you're tired of it, then do what I do; TURN OFF THE FLIPPIN TV. Have REAL family time. Play a game, read a story, listen to music, TALK TO EACH OTHER. If nothing else, pop in an age-appropirate DVD. What is wrong with you people? Can't you exist without the boob-tube?

If you don't like the commercial hit the Mute button on the remote, or jsut change the channel. Why can't you people at the decency police shut up? You some liberal nanny statist? God, you people annoy me. Always deciding what's decent or not. Don't you have something better to do either your time than try and moniter what OTHER people watch? I knew what stuff like that was when I was only about 6 years old and knew how sex worked when I was 9. It's not gonna hurt your kids or anyone elses if they find out about this kind of stuff.

Yes, I'm tired of it! I'm just trying to watch "Unsolved Mysteries" at 4PM and they must play that commercial 4 times an hour! Shouldn't that be a late-night-only-commercial?

I couldn't agree more with you on all these commercial topics. There is a time and place for these, and at dinner time when you just want to listen to the news, you are hearing about all of these. These companies go a little overboard with when they play their ads.

If this bothers you so much, why are you commenting on it? There is a time and a place for male enhancement commercials to be aired. Why would you want a 6 year old learning about his dad's possible sexual problem? You learning about all this stuff at 6 and 9 years old just shows how screwed up this society is if young ones know about all that stuff at that early age. I would rather be the one telling my child about all of the different things pertaining to birds and the bee's when I felt is appropriate, not by him watching a commercial.
