Sex in media drives earlier teen passion

A study analyzed 308 different television shows, movies, songs, and magazines commonly used by white teenagers and calculated each teens “sexual media diet.” The researchers then followed up with each teen two years later inquiring about their sexual behavior.
As it turns out, white teens who use media with high sexual content were more than 2 times as likely to have sex by the time they were 16 years old than those who used less.
Duh!!!

So, obviously, ban television, right -- and the issue of sex will go away. Or did I miss something?

Did the study show causation or correlation I wonder?

Seriously, though. One of the main influences on early sexual behavior (aside from media input) in the fact that teenagers are hitting puberty WAY earlier than kids used to.

We live in a new age of mankind, centered around the media, devoid of all but weak, rapid thought. There is reaction after reaction - no reasoned response to life. Emotion and selfish desire hold center stage. It is a sad state of affairs and I feel it will only worsen awhile.

t dworsky is right, 100%. Another factor is that children that do not feel genuine affection from their families will seek the affection they see played out in media.
