Just what kids need today -soft core porn on MTV. With some reckless drug use and violence thrown in for good measure. Guess the title? Skins. Ha! Could they be any more honest about how they’re enticing hormone fueled teens to tune in.
I can honestly say my kids don’t even know what MTV is but I know plenty o’ peeps that allow their kids to watch MTV.
