On one side you have Qantas, which has taken to screening a 50-minute French documentary titled "The Female Orgasm Explained." We suppose this is technically more of an instructional video than a documentary, interspersing as it does lots of nakedness with what we assume are dispassionate clinical overviews. The airline wants parents to know that the content can be blocked in those rows where their children are sitting, a trick that will work perfectly unless the kids figure out how to "turn their heads sideways."
On the exact opposite side of the porn-watching spectrum you have Virgin Atlantic, which has begun providing "emotional health warnings" before movies that might make men cry. They claim that they've got a study showing that 41% of men who fly have hidden under blankets to hide the shame of tearing up at in-flight movies like Eat, Pray, Love. That number can't be right, can it? We wouldn't have a civilization left if that number was right, would we?
