Gold Medal in the 'Perv' Olympics?

Writer at Jezebel this afternoon claims a new NBC video on female "bodies in motion" often amounts to something close to soft-core porn.  "Get thee to a drain of some kind before watching this video the pervs over at NBC have put together in order to show their appreciation for Olympic bodies of the 2012 London Games.  Unfortunately, to NBC, showcasing the Bodies in Motion of the XXX Olympiad means taking footage of conventionally attractive female athletes competing in sports that require them to be scantily clad, slowing it way down as the camera lovingly caresses their butts, breasts, and bouncing ponytails, and playing some soft core porn music over it. Apparently NBC is too busy focusing on jiggling ladies' asses to notice ladies kicking ass."   But:  "At least NBC's contribution to Boner Jams 2012 doesn't include any underage gymnasts."
