New York (ANI): MTV has insisted that its teen drama 'Skins" has not violated any federal child pornography statutes after complains of exploitation from a media watchdog group. The Parents Television Council were furious when a 17-year-old actor alternating between being naked and appearing aroused for a length of time in the January 31 episode was aired.
It resulted in sponsor Taco Bell abandoning the series amidst
concerns that 'Skins" might be in danger of violating federal child
pornography statutes. “We review all of our shows and work with all
of our producers on an ongoing basis to ensure our shows comply
with laws and community standards," the New York Post quoted MTV as
saying in a statement.

“We are confident that the episodes of 'Skins" will not only comply with all applicable legal requirements, but also with our responsibilities to our viewers. We also have taken numerous steps to alert viewers to the strong subject matter so that they can choose for themselves whether it is appropriate," it stated.
