I have just realised I was cringing my face at a C4 Promo for "Dirty Sanchez". I'm probably right in the right age and sex target for this type of show, but instead I was repulsed. These idiots are into self mutilation and torture!
This is desensitisation as we know it - and for what? I dont rate it.
Hate Spiders? If you expose yourself to them enough, you may begin to get used to them - possibly even like them. If this theory works, can the same be said for our next generation of people who are constantly exposed to acts of terrorism, war or even a TV promo about watching people hurt themselves?
Does it become less of a problem to us?
