ABC’s ‘The View’ discusses three-way gay sex on daytime television

jenny-mccarthy-the-viewThere aren’t many who’ll suggest that ABC’s morning talk show “The View” is kid-friendly programming, although it is daytime TV.

While the Disney-owned network touts that the show features “dynamic women …discussing the most exciting events of the day,” few would imagine that includes three-way gay sex.

MTV star and gay activist Dan Savage was a guest on the program Thursday and the ladies were discussing his views on monogamy — he believes infidelity is “inevitable” — when co-host Jenny McCarthy turned the subject to Savage and his partner Terry Miller, and whether their marriage is monogamous.

Savage explained he’s coined the term “monogamish – we’re much more monogamous than not, but there’s an allowance for some sexual adventure, variety.”

At which point, Barbara Walters jumped in to wonder about the etiquette of this process.

Newsbusters picks it up from here:

Savage quipped: “When I’m cheating on my partner, he’s cheating on me at the same time — at the other end of the same guy.”

In the midst of the furor of shock, laughter, and applause, Savage added: “It’s not cheating when everyone agrees!”

Again, this is daytime television.

The View is rated TV-14 by the TV Parental Guidelines, a viewer ratings system designed by the television industry to give parents information on TV programs.

A TV-14 rating states that “program contains some material that many parents would find unsuitable for children under 14 years of age.”

The matter is summed up well by Newsbusters: “‘Pro-sex’ activists like Savage often try an ‘everybody does it’ ethic to erode a culture of fidelity and devotion. Unselfishness is anathema, and ‘adventure’ is king. If ‘everybody does it,’ then who can condemn it?”
