Contrary to what you might expect from the channel that once banned a Katy Perry Sesame Street appearance for being too risque, Steambath went over just fine on PBS back in 1973. But that was, in part, because nobody in Steambath ever mentioned the hemispheres of interest. In fact, from 1973 to 1990 there was a 17-year-long span where you could occasionally see tits on TV, but naming them was strictly verboten.
So almost two decades went by with no one talking about something that everyone was watching, like a sexy elephant in the room. Then, in 1990, a show called The Trials Of Rosie O'Neill opened with the main character musing "I'm thinking about maybe having my tits done," and the world lost its damn mind.
On a higher-definition TV, you can see that book just says "tits" over and over again.
The Los Angeles Times ran a reader poll, wondering if TV had finally gone too far by talking about the thing everyone had, up to this point, only been creepily staring at. Should we be allowed to say "tits" on television? Can civilization endure when our TVs utter such vulgarities as "you suck"? The answer, of course, was "Jesus, just you wait a few more years -- you're going to have a heart attack."
