Barry named 2 different exercises, both focusig on the inner thighs, as Sex On The Beach in his latest set. He goes on to say "Sex on the beach is fun!" after the completion of one set. I immediately took the set back to Target. I can't have my 5, 11, 17 or 19 year old boys listening to that!

I am more modest than most I know but it's right for me and my family.

Sexy shots don't annoy me or offend me & I don't mind if my kids see them. But OTOH, I think they are silly & inappropriate, & they certainly don't INSPIRE me at all. So it seems like a poor choice, since many of us are put off & few seem to actually enjoy these shots & covers. I doubt our videos are an adequate alternative to porn for people who are looking for it.

Bad music is far more offensive IMO & I'm ashamed to let my kids hear it - they laugh at it for being so terrible, too.

I'm betting that your 17 and 19 year old boys have heard far worse!

I would have taken it back too. I'm a SAHM who homeschools three children, from 13-9, and definitely think about the influence of things on them. If they were in school or not around when I exercised I might not notice it as much.

Michelle, I wouldn't describe myself as a particularly modest person, more of a "liberal European" - but this remark would be waaaaay OTT for me as well and a big turn off. Modesty is one factor and taste is another.

This is a workout video Barry, you know, for people to work out to, what's the point of making such remarks at all?...

I don't blame you - I have no children and I would have taken this back too. What was he thinking saying somethng like that on a fitness DVD? Good grief.

I got rid of Tantric toning because of the excessive boobage on display.

Not for a second did I think there was anything risque about CLX.

As a mom, I think parents have a lot more things to worry about than whether an exercise dvd shows some cleavage. TV, commercials, billboards, magazines and school buses come to mind. HAVING cleavage isn't bad, is it? I'd rather teach my kids that it means nothing more than some boobs are bigger than others.

I'll agree with that!

i don't like or need boob shots, cleavage closeups, shorts that are too high and pants that are too low no matter how good the workout. let alone the crotch shots. there are plenty of excellent workouts that don't do any of this. i should not know where an instructor waxes nor should it be obvious how much enhancement they've had.

i guess there's also something to be said for the way a workout is shot and presented, IMO. callanetics and super callanetics the female exercisers all wear leotards, but i find the tonique cooldown tasteless. again, JMO.

aside from the janice saffell covers, i don't like the cover to the original buns of steel either.

yes, kudos to all the instructors that make great workouts and look beautiful without, er, overexposing themselves, lol.

At the age of four or five, kids don't respond the way a ten or eleven year old would. They are only a few years away from viewing breasts as snack packs!

They might even know first hand that sex on the beach is fun.
