A new and extensive study has proven that exposure to sex scenes in the media leads teenagers to be more promiscuous, lose their virginity earlier and take greater risks.
The study followed a group of young people through their adolescence, and studied what they were watching and the effects this had on their sex lives a few years down the road. Some of the popular films the children were watching at the time were: American Beauty, Austin Powers, American Pie, and Notting Hill.
The study also showed even the seemingly innocent sexual content of children’s movies, like the Princess Diaries, had an impact.
In an earlier study it was found that between 1950 and 2006, 84% of movies contained sexual content.
Media programs the mind of the youth, for good and bad, and is used to manipulate life-style through marketing promoting consumer sales, political thinking, and ultimately behavior as it gains access to the hearts of a whole generation of young people.
