Controversial “Sex Box” TV Show Cancelled

Luke 17:28-30 “Likewise as it was also in the days of Lot: They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built” but on the day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. Even so will it be in the day when the Son of Man is revealed.

A television program that featured people having sex in a box just feet away from a panel of therapists and commentators in a soundproof box has been cancelled by the WE TV network because of low ratings.

The network said the show did not attract the “large numbers of viewers”but that they are considering ways to chance the show for a return to the air.  The show previously featured two adults having sex and then talking about it just after the act with therapists and show hosts.

The producers of the show claimed that there was nothing improper or pornographic about the show.

The show had been condemned by Christian groups across the nation who had been calling for a boycott of WE TV because of the program.  The Parent’s Television Council had started an online petition to stop the program before it aired.

The network’s response was for people to “watch before you judge”.

The PTC released a statement Friday praising the cancellation and declaring victory in their effort to remove the show.

“The program from its very outset was an affront to families, toxic to advertisers, and a clear demonstration of a badly-broken business model that forces every cable/satellite subscriber to pay for unwanted and unwatched cable networks,” stated PTC President Tim Winter.

“PTC members and other pro-family groups who signed petitions against the show are to be congratulated for their successful activism.”
