On The Office, I only saw one sexual message in this past week’s episode.
I think that the message portrayed was that random sex can be funny. Also, that people are proud of having sex with several people, and sometimes even people they barely know, and that they will get attention for this kind of sexual activity.
In Glee this week, the sexual messages that were portrayed were that older people having sex was gross, and that having sex makes you happy, and if you aren’t having sex, you can’t be very happy. The characters were depressed when they weren’t in a relationship, and doubted their self-worth and qualities. I didn’t think this was a good message, because it made it seem like you could only be defined as popular, or even of worth, if you had a sexual partner that everyone else knew about, too.
