Parents Group Is In A Tizzy Over The “Gossip Girl” Threesome Episode

The Parents Television Council has asked CW affiliates not to air the much-anticipated threesome episode of “Gossip Girl” because airing the teen menage a trois would be “reckless and irresponsible,” said the group’s president Tim Winter in a statement Wednesday. The group says on its website that “the show conveys the message that sex is a tool used to manipulate people.” Although the promos for the “3SOME” don’t say who will be involved, some suspect that it will be the show’s top schemers, Blair Waldorf and Chuck Bass, with another major character. The median viewer age is 27 years old, according to a CW spokesperson, a claim Winter said in his statement “doesn’t even pass the ‘laugh test.’” He said “Gossip Girl” is “expressly targeted to impressionable teenagers.”I can’t refute that claim. I doubt the show and its fashion would be so popular if teens weren’t watching. How many adult women were running around in pleated mini skirts with knee-high socks à la Blair and her crew? But what Winter fails to realize is that many teenagers today already engage in sexual acts that parents think belong only in adult films. Teens are into experimentation, and I’m sure the upcoming episode of “Gossip Girl” will not be the first time they’ve heard of a threesome (or saw one). This show is one of The CW’s top earners, so it’s ludicrous for the Parents Television Group to try to get affiliates not to air the episode. It ain’t happening. But I have a more novel approach to the situation: turn the TV off if you don’t want your teen to watch and let the 27-year-olds have their soft-core porn fun. Will you watch “Gossip Girl” when the threesome episode airs this Monday, Nov. 9? [Us Weekly]
