A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this website.

Positive Messages

MTV gives the "stunts done by professionals ... don't try this at home" legal-ese warning; however, the degrading, risky behavior performed by the cast of this show has inspired kids to do risky stunts leading to injury in the past, and the site adds fuel to the fire with enthusiastic posts from the community of fans fanning the flames. The more disgusting and dangerous the stunt, the better.

Violence

Self-inflicted violence resulting in blood and injury is the gold standard. A favorite cast member explains a posted photo taken of his bloodied pants: "I have to empty the piss bag on my leg that I have to wear... until my urethra heals."

Sex

Lots of fully exposed bare bottoms. Genitals with small icons covering them. Crude sexual humor. One text message posted on the site, in praise of the cast: "I want to rape all of you!"

Language

Explicit language is the name of the game here. Plenty of all the standards, the "f--k," "s--t," ass, as well as vulgar sexual slang, in various creative combinations.

Consumerism

Ads for Jackass-related products like DVDs, shirts, hats, books. Ads for MTV and other cable networks. The entire site creates hype for the TV show, movies, and game.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

Some stunts involve drinking -- or are done drunk.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that this site is an extension of the popular Jackass movies and MTV series where the cast performs risky -- and most often dangerous -- stunts and generally makes fools of themselves. Crude humor, opportunities for self-inflicted injury, and swearing is the shtick here. With millions of fans, this show and site are popular with -- and dangerous for -- the under-17 crowd.

jackass is cool

I LOVE THIS MOVIE THIS IS THE COOLEST MOVIE AS COMEDY

What's it about?

The red flags that JACKASSWORLD.COM's risky stunts, crude pranks, and foul language raise are probably exactly what the creators of the popular movies, MTV series, and this site want. The more dangerous and outrageous, the better. While MTV states this site is not for anyone under 17, simply entering a fake date of birth isn't going to protect most kids from viewing its highly age-inappropriate content.

Is it any good?

Jackassworld.com is crude, rude, potentially dangerous, and definitely not for kids. Fans will love it. And, unfortunately, some of those fans are impressionable kids. The least that can happen to kids on this site is learning a few new combinations of vulgar language and seeing some crude images of public group moonings. More seriously, kids attempting some of these Jackass stunts -- against MTV's legal-protection warning -- or their own stunt creations inspired by the show could be injured or worse. This is endangering kids' well-being for profit at its finest.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about why adults cast members and MTV would perform and promote vulgar stunts on a show like this. What motivates them to do this? If there's an audience for this type of entertainment, there's someone who will nearly cut off their genitals to make money off of it. Discuss the dangers of media images like the ones on this site, especially for young tweens and teens who may not understand how dangerous some of these stunts could be.
