Violence is fine, but sex is bad?

Why is it that violence is more acceptable in the media than sex? Watch a few hours TV and you're quite likely to see violence in one form or another, often resulting in deaths, but it's acceptable.
Yet if a nipple slips out in a shower-creme advert, there's hell to pay and people get outraged?

I've never really understood this, not even from a "it's because of religion" perspective (afterall, Thou Shalt Not Kill is pretty darn important to Christians, for example).
What is to be fearful of when a bit of flesh is on the screen?

And connected to this - why is it that the older a film is, the more likely it is to be on during the day despite containing quite a lot of violence (Westerns in particular)? Just because it was made in 1962 doesn't mean that it's any less violent.

they play older films during the day bc they aren't as popular, and if they have violence..most kids are in school anyways. i hate watching tv during the day bc NOTHING is on except for talkshows (for moms) and elmo. i don't necessarily think violence is accepted more than sex. there are parent groups and general groups fighting/complaining on how much violence should be accepted/rated on tv... so it's not as if violence is even "accepted". and as for sex, commercials and shows have been adding a lot more sex..not necessarily the nipple slip, but basically showing that they're having sex like every day. and i think showing nudity on tv is so overprotected bc of the fact that they don't want a multiple of 12 yr olds having babies (not that it's not happening in society), and parents don't want their babies to come across some nude photo of a person (ew, who wants a society of perverted kids). and i'm not saying that violence is "okay" for kids to see, i just think that it's more accepted bc most kids have the common sense to know who's the villian and who's the good guy.

It's a logical disconnect. I think it might have been that the early Church lectured against pre-marital sex much more than against violence, because people were more likely to have sex than kill.

It depend on which era you are talking about though.

...sex makes babies, violence takes lives. overpopulation is a problem nowadays, painting sex as good would only worsen the problem.

Thats only America, and Americas neighboring countries. The most of the rest of the world is fine with sex and nudity on tv.
