Venezuela Court Orders Media to Clean out Smut and Porn

Saturday, 10 May 2014 09:04 AM EDT

CARACAS, Venezuela — TV, billboards, even songs — Venezuela's Supreme Court is ordering the media to clean out the smut and tone down sexually suggestive content.

The ruling Friday by Venezuela's top court came in a case filed by a citizen "representing his underage children" who wanted to end "pornographic ads in newspapers and magazines for the general public."

The court ordered "the elimination of all images of explicit or implicit sexual content in advertisements in print media of open access to girls, boys and teens, relating to ... activity that promotes services linked to the exploitation of sex," read a statement summarizing the ruling.

As an example, the Tribunal mentions a Venezuelan sports daily that runs ads of models who are "nude, semi-nude or in underwear in suggestive poses" advertising sex phone chat lines.

The ruling also calls on the Venezuela's Telecommunications Commission to monitor the content of songs of all music genres to make sure they are "acceptable for all users," and that if necessary songs with racy lyrics be played on air only during determined hours.

And it orders groups that defend the rights of children and teens to control what minors can see and play in video game arcade halls and on the Internet.
