SEXUALLY charged music, magazines, TV and movies push youngsters into intercourse at an earlier age, perhaps by telling them that everyone else is doing it, a study shows...At least someone has noticed.
...Youngsters "may begin to believe the world view portrayed and may begin to adopt the media's social norms as their own", it said. "Some, especially those who have fewer alternative sources of sexual norms such as parents or friends, may use the media as a kind of sexual superpeer that encourages them to be sexually active."
Sex and expressions of sexuality are wonderful between adults (especially between married couples ::giving Nicky a comehither look::), but it is certainly not appropriate for 16-year-old girls walking around with the Playboy Bunny emblazoned on their baby doll T-shirt.
There's time enough to explore the complexities of human relationships and to learn that sex should not be a commodity. Give the kids a chance to grow up first.
