Apparently, Disney like sex

Subliminal messages are audio or visual stimuli that occur below the threshold of consciousness. In other words, it’s rare that someone would actually be aware that they were seeing or hearing a subliminal message. Subliminal messages in Disney Movies are one of the most popular examples of subliminal messages in modern culture because the subliminal messages in these children’s movies are almost all explicitly sexual. Disney is notorious for using explicit and hidden messages in their movies, TV shows and short films. It is widely known that the messages exist in Disney films, here are two that you can see for yourself:

My 2 cents on the matter: Verbal hidden messages and visual hidden messages are often flashed across the screen or said so fast that they average viewer is not necessary aware that they are hearing or seeing something out of the ordinary. The message is simply heard or seen and processed quickly. The conscious mind has no chance to think about our filter out the information. These messages are often things that children and teenagers should not be exposed to, especially not when they think that they are watching an innocent film. For this reason, just pay close attention to what is exposed to you. That’s my two cents, keep the change.
