Hi! Two of my contributions to the parents guide were declined, which left me quite confused. For comparison I took a closer look at other entries that have (obviously) been approved, and I just can't understand what I did wrong. Sure, I wrote about strong, sexual content and didn't try to sugar-coat it. But when the material in question is explicit then it seems perfectly logical that the descriptions should reflect that.

Two of the following five examples were my contributions (which were declined), but the remaining three are still to be found on your site. Spot the errors!

  • A woman gets on her knees and crawls toward a man and it is implied that he is receiving oral sex. He forces the woman's head off and we briefly see his erect penis (though it looks very fake).
  • Erect penises are clearly visible on some occasions.
  • A woman is seen putting her mouth on a man's crotch. She takes her mouth off, he ejaculates and semen is seen squirting onto her face. (The semen is obviously fake - probably cream).
  • A completely nude woman (her breasts, vulva, clitoris and buttocks are visible) is brought into a room where she is handcuffed to a bed. A man unzips another man's pants and his butt is seen. The man climbs onto the man and rapes the woman from behind. The man slaps her on the back repeatedly and the woman whimpers in pain.
  • Some rather graphic sex scenes involving prostitutes. Bare buttocks and bouncing breasts are clearly visible. No female genitalia or actual penetration shown.

Answer:

Examples number two and five were declined. Please tell me what makes them unacceptable when the other three examples have been approved of.

Thank you for the quick reply!

However, I think those same problems should apply to a high portion of the approved entries. 

Would you really have been able to point to my examples and say: "Those two must be declined - the other three are just fine" ?

Further, parents might want to know that a show includes erect penises, and the fact that they are clearly visible is still very relevant, IMO. It's clearly different from a "blink-and-you'll-miss-it"-glimpse of a flaccid penis, shot at a distance, in the dark (for example).

Hi! My main goal here is to learn how to write proper entries. That said, I do think the declined entries would've been a useful addition, and I still can't quite figure out what was wrong with them. (At least not when compared to some of the valid submissions).

Here are the reference numbers:

Contribution #190930-015543-130004
Contribution #190930-020145-203404

Thanks!

Hi kurtslater,

I've taken a look and those submissions are both valid for the TV series in question. If it is a submission for a parent series (as opposed to the episodes) then the parental guide submission should relate to the series as a whole, which yours does. Please can you resubmit the items and provide the submission references? That way I can make sure those get approved.

Thanks,
Will
