When you’re a live TV show, it can sometimes be hard to keep potential indecencies off the air. Like when Jane Fonda goes on the Today show and says “cunt.”
But if you’re a taped TV show, you go through rounds and rounds of editing before a final product is considered ready for the small screen. It might be assumed, then, that after editors and producers watched a clip for the umpteenth time, they would’ve caught anything that would set off the censors. But not on Survivor: Gabon, the CBS reality series’ 17th season, which is the setting for the hottest inter-orientation romance between a gay guy (Charlie Herschel) and a straight guy (Marcus Lehman).
And it’s Marcus (left) who managed to slip past the censors when, like Janet Jackson, he experienced a wardrobe malfunction when his penis slipped out of his boxer shorts during a run on the show’s first episode. And then it went on TV.
Of course that’s upset the screaming queens at the Parents Television Council, who have filed an indecency complaint, claiming the manhood exhibition was not just “shocking” but also “purposeful.” Idiots.
But by now, you’re already dying to see the dick slip, if you haven’t spotted it on the Internet already. So here it is, NSFW, below.
(Did we mention this is the first season of Survivor broadcast in HD? Uh huh.)
