% of people who will likely have sex/see nudity of the gender they are attracted to in their lifetime = somewhere really, really, close to 100%
Sex and nudity in films = A little will get you an R, a little more than that will get you an NC-17

% of people who will speak or hear profanity in their life = Again, really, really close to 100%
Profanity in films = A tiny bit may still slip into a PG-13 film, otherwise it's R

% of people who will directly and intentionally kill another human being through violence = Nowhere close to 100%
similar violence in films = it's gotta be pretty graphic and excessive to get you an R instead of a PG-13

The MPAA is a joke.  It was a way to enforce censorship on US films while avoiding 1st amendment issues (by making the censorship privately run and not government run).  I've worked on films where we were poised to get an NC17 rating and when we resubmitted we took off a few frames from some of the "offending" shots, timed the blood so it was dark rather than bright and took out some of the music and temp sound effects.  Then, you get an R.

They're just conservative douchebags getting paid to sit in judgment on a method of speech they have no understanding of.  They're not industry professionals, they're recipients of cushy jobs for good behaviour in their political lives.

EvilEgg: You used to be able to count on a certain amount gratuitous nudity in your R rated films.  Sad really, where have all the boobies gone?

We have secretly replaced the squiggly lines on a crappy old television with full HD video of gorgeous, nubile, former Soviet Bloc hotties, doing all kinds of nasty things for free. Let's see if EvilEgg notices.

People get paid or at least college credit for bullshiat studies like this? Christ, I'm in the wrong business.

As for boobies, in the '70s and '80s they were plentiful. My first exposure to boobs was in the PG rated "Airplane!" when I was 3. Logan's Run, Clash of the Titans, all PG rated boobs. But Titanic was the last PG-13 rated movie with boobs (and even that was only one boob but I can extrapolate). Violence in PG-13 movies however, is about as high as many R rated movies from the 80s. But you can't say the eff word more than once.
