Racy Music, TV Blamed for Teen Sex

Racy music, TV blamed for teen sex - wow. really?


A new study suggests that youths who are exposed to sexually explicit media when they are 12 to 14 are more likely to have sex before they hit 16.

That is pretty evident by the way some children, barely tall enough to see over the FIRST row of CDs in my store, bump and grind their way through the songs their parents occupy them with on the listening points. Some children even sing along to all the memorized lyrics. Ugh.

But, there is good news from this study:
the study found they were far more influenced by attitudes of parents and friends than media.

So, in many cases, we should be more concerned about the attitudes of parents.

Would that be the attitudes of parents BUYING this stuff for their kids?
