Things that scandalized you when you were young

DL, what made you clutch your pearls when you were a child?

I'll begin, for me it was the line "you make a dead man cum" in the song Emotional Rescue.

Flowers in the Attic.

I read my sister's copy as a young gayling.

When Miss Abigail Crabtree lifted her skirt to climb into her phaeton and flashed her bare ankle. I gasped and turned crimson.

I never read the book, R1. But Louise Fletcher & Victoria Tennant in the film version of "Flowers In The Attic" terrorized me when I finally saw it around the age of ten.

Now? It's absolutely hilarious camp, and one of my favorite films. And of course, Christopher Young's haunting score is the absolute best part of the film.

The story about the guy in the band who had to go to the hospital because he had swallowed the sperm of all his bandmates. Don't remember which band it was. This was in the late '70s.

How did you fuck up the name of the song? You linked to it correctly.

Seeing a man in a dress for the first time gave me nightmares for weeks.

Barry Gibb’s white pants in the “Staying Alive” video.

I saw an episode of The Bozo Show where a skit revolved around Cookie accidentally ripping part of Bozo's costume. Bozo retaliated by chasing Cookie around and ripping his costume pieces off until he was down to his underwear, which Bozo also ripped off. The guy playing Cookie was wearing a nude bodysuit, but it still seemed kinda fucked up for a kids show, to strip him down to implied total nudity.

Vanessa Redgrave exposed her breasts in 'Blow-Up'. They were like grey, miniature lemons.

In my older brother's Playboy magazine, there were always mentions of Bill Cosby "in The Grotto", which suggested situations they couldn't spell out. This was back in Cosby's "I Spy" days, and I was horrified that a happily married man would go to the Playboy Mansion.

Seeing a bunch of breeders fucking in a movie. They looked like monkeys.

On the sleeping porch at the beach house in summer, hearing cats fuckiing in the dark bushes.

The treasure trails and VPL of teens and college boys. Much more scandalous than nudity which I saw all the time at the club and at school and some beaches. Scandalous because I could NOT look away from half revealed male anatomy.

R5 Oh. My. God. I am mortified by this mistake. I'm not sure how to explain it. But I was listening to a Rolling Stones playlist and I listened to Emotional Rescue before starting the thread.

How embarrassing. 😱😱

When watching Sigmund and the Sea Monsters when I was a kid, I distinctly remember Johnny Whitaker setting down a bucket for Sigmund in the corner and saying something like 'This is for your dooky' or maybe doody.

It freaked me out.

Did that really happen?

I think in All That Jazz when the burlesque dancers are harassing dancer young Joe Gideon and make him cum in his pants and it’s considered thick and viscose even having penetrated his silk dance pants. That wasn’t like any cum I was familiar with in my teen life.

I was really young when Axl Rose performed "You Could Be Mine" from the Terminator 2 soundtrack for the VMA's. The shorts he wore were even tinier than in the pic, but this gives you an idea. His package was huge and I was staring. My mom commented on it being obscene, his package. The whole memory is cringe worthy.

Hearing the long version of Heart of Glass, where Debbie Harry says “pain in the ass.” It was a Xmas gift & my first real record (non-Disney) about age 7, I read the liner notes & was horrified that she was one of the co-writers, as i Idolized her (still do). I told myself one of the other songwriters put the A-word in the song & forced her to sing it.
