Watching people who like each other sex each other up: nope, can’t have that on tv. It’s dirty, sinful, icky. Especially if a woman is actually enjoying herself.
Watching people who hate each other kill each other: yeah, have at it. We have live news footage, historical war reenactments, murder mysteries, biblical plagues and catastrophic weather brought on by god. Also sports.

Graffiti Alley (which explains how our secular culture is responsible for much of the evil in society) has little video clips on the wall.
