That's what happened to author Bob DeMoss, who was shocked when bare breasts and a sex scene confronted him on a recent Delta flight from Los Angeles to Atlanta when he decided to tune into the free on-demand, Starz Channel political drama “Boss.”
“I didn’t expect for a woman to bare her breasts six inches from my face on an airplane. This was a deliberate full-frontal exposure. I was seated in ‘sardine class’ where every one of the 300 seats was taken on this massive 777LR jet, and when the blonde tore her top off and reached for her partner’s zipper, I instinctively grabbed a vomit bag to cover the action unfolding on the TV monitor inches from my face,” DeMoss recalled. “I held the bag in position until both the gratuitous nudity and ensuing sex scene passed. I could tell the offending material was over when the grunts, groans and moans in my headset gave way to dialogue in a new scene.”
While “Boss” played out on the small screen mounted behind the seat in front, DeMoss said that the content was “visible to anyone in (his) row, those walking in the aisle, or in the seats behind” and the incident has since prompted him to ask several questions.
“Can reasonable adults at least agree there is something seriously wrong about offering that sort of sordid fare on an airplane where children and discerning adults are present? Delta makes a big deal about their efforts to recycle aluminum cans, plastic bottles, and newspapers to preserve the environment,” he continued. “Their website even asserts: ‘Delta is committed to preventing pollution wherever possible.’ Maybe one day Delta will be equally convicted about polluting the moral environment of their passengers.”
