1. I remember our tv guide in the movie section had letters at the end of the late-night movie blurbs which indicated things like the rating and if it had nudity in it. There was a time when I would scour these and lose a lot of sleep watching the ones that indicated nudity just to catch any brief glimpse of boobs. An actual sex scene was a major score.
I also remember realizing one day that our cable box allowed you to start a pay-per-view movie and you could watch like 3 minutes before deciding to keep watching it and be charged on your bill, or change it and not be charged. I’m sure I went over time more than once but bless my parents they never said anything.
