Raunchy Music Influences Teens' Sex Habits, Study Says
Teens whose iPods are full of music with raunchy, sexual lyrics start having sex sooner than those who prefer other songs, a study found.
Whether it's hip-hop, rap, pop or rock, much of popular music aimed at teens contains sexual overtones. Its influence on their
behavior appears to depend on how the sex is portrayed, researchers found.
Songs depicting men as "sex-driven studs," women as sex objects and with explicit references to sex acts are more likely to trigger early sexual behavior than those where sexual references are more veiled and relationships appear more committed, the study found.
Teens who said they listened to lots of music with degrading sexual messages were almost twice as likely to start having
intercourse or other sexual activities within the following two years as were teens who listened to little or no sexually degrading music.
Among heavy listeners, 51 percent started having sex within two years, versus 29 percent of those who said they listened to little or no sexually degrading music.
Don't agree?....Let's see. I recently saw a little girl in the store at the mall singing one of the hottest songs out now by Plies, "Bust It Baby Pt. 2" lyrics:
" ...Juss gave her a nick name, it's wet-wet
Cause when we finished she mess up all the bedsets..."
Soooooooo inappropriate!!!! I love to listen to the latest songs just like the next person but c'mon....These artists are so irresponsible/borderline ignorant!
