最近在做一本书的翻译,是有关大众传媒方面的。看到一句话,能猜出大概的意思,但准确的翻译还没想出来,请大家帮帮手:

These experiments suggested, among other things, that romantic and erotic scenes did not have much effect on young children, who took little notice of them. The scenes had little effect on adults, also, because adults saw them as fiction. However, the scenes with sexual content had a noticeable effect on teenagers. In fact, the researchers pointed out that sex scenes “blew the sixteen-year-olds off the graphs.”

就是"blew the sixteen-year-olds off the graphs.”应该如何表达较好?谢谢。

the scores/values soared to a very high level (ie off the measurement charts) Jun 5, 2009

IMO, 'blew the sixteen-year-olds off the graphs' = sent the scores of the sixteen-year-olds off the top of the charts (ie made the scores soar to a very high level)
