‘Emmerdale’ named ‘Most Sexually Active Soap’April 1st, 2009 - 2:56 pm ICT by ANI
London, Apr 1 (ANI): ‘Emmerdale’ has been voted the ‘Most Sexually Active Soap’ in a magazine’s survey.
Inside Soap magazine scrutinised ‘EastEnders’, ‘Coronation Street’, ‘Hollyoaks’, ‘Home and Away’, ‘Neighbours’ and ‘Emmerdale’ for 14 days and found the tale of rural Yorkshire folk is even racier than teen drama ‘Hollyoaks’.
The magazine found that ‘Emmerdale’ had an average of 1.8 sexually-related incidents every half hour, with ‘Hollyoaks’ in second place, with 1.6.
The survey showed that ‘Corrie’ and ‘EastEnders’ both had an average of one each, ‘Neighbours’ had 1.2 and ‘Home and Away’ was the tamest soap with only 0.2.
The magazine’s survey revealed that the sexual activity in soaps was along the lines of a ‘bit of snogging’ or someone doing up a blouse or pair of trousers on their way back downstairs, rather than anything too explicit.
“The soaps are a dramatic place to live, as we all know, but while the level of incidents of sex, bad language and violence may seem to be high, we discovered what is actually seen or heard on screen is comparatively tame compared to many other TV dramas, let alone what goes on in real life,” the Independent quoted Steven Murphy, editor of Inside Soap magazine, as saying.
