Studies of sexual messages in movies and on television have found that there has been an increase in the number of portrayals and amount of sex featured in these media and an increase in the explicitness of these portrayals. The objective of this study was to know the extent to which the audience want sexual contents in Nigerian movies. Survey was adopted as the research design and copies of questionnaire were used to gather information from 337 respondents in four local governments in Ogun state. Results showed that audiences consider sexual contents as bad, unhealthy, excessive and irrelevant in most cases. Based on the findings, the researcher recommends that producers should pass across sexual acts swiftly and with caution.
