This may be old news, but I’ve wanted to comment for a while.
A recent Carolina-led study recently concluded that:
Teenagers between the ages of 12 and 14 who use media with high sexual content are up to 2.2 times more likely to have sex by the time they are 16 than those who use less such media.
So, basically, this study surveyed kids when they were 12-14 to see if they watched a lot of MTV and other debaucherous entertainment. Then they came back several years later and surveyed those kids again about their sexual lives.
They also found that:
Brown and her colleagues found that one of the strongest protective factors against early sexual behavior was clear parental communication about sex. White teens who reported that their parents did not approve of them having sex at this age were less likely to have engaged in precoital sexual behavior. Both black and white youth who reported their parents did not want them to have sex were less likely to have engaged in sexual intercourse by the time they were 16 years old than those who perceived less parent disapproval of teen sex.
Isn’t it funny that we need to pay PhD’s to confirm beliefs that were just considered common sense fifty years ago. If one comes in contact with sexual content more, they will be more disposed to partake. In other words, as your mother told you when you were young, “don’t fill your head with garbage.” Secondly, parents can actually have a positive effect on their children.
These are just stunning revelations. My whole life I thought conservative’s desire for parental control in their children’s life and their distain for M-TV and such filth was simply traditionalistic backwardness spawned by men’s effort to preserve the oppressive patriarchy of a bygone era. I guess I was wrong.
