That is true.Blame american prudes.
Canada is similar too, although Quebec is much more liberal with stuff (like T&A on tv). I remember as a kid watching English CBC and it shows one thing, then turn to channel 12 French CBC and they are showing tits in prime time and even a CBC made show like that old shitty hockey TV show in the late 80s was showing tits. Who knew unless you saw the Quebec edition.
No doubt some other countries are big into censorship and trying to clamp down on T&A and cussing, but when it comes to big richer countries.... US, Europe as a whole, Aussie etc.... some reason the US goes ape shit at some sex appeal, flashing nipples and swearing. Nobody is expecting games and media to be showing hardcore pornos right after an episode of Sesame Street, but for a country that is supposed to be Free and Liberty, there's immense amount of clamp down protectionist laws.
Then you see international TV ads and clips of afternoon TV shows and there's sex, cussing, and one TV ad I remember was I think Swedish and it was I think grandparents to listening to music, the headphones come off and it's punkers yelling FUCK FUCK FUCK. Amazing shit.
