you don't say!

From this Daily Mail article entitled Underage sex 'link' to media:
Children exposed to sex in TV programmes, films, magazines and music are more likely to engage in sexual activity than those who are not, according to research out today.

There is a direct relationship between the amount of sexual content a child sees and their level of sexual activity or their intentions to have sex in the future, the study found.

Such media also has at least an equal influence on sexual behaviour as religion or a child's relationship with their parents and peers, the study said.
This new study should win the "no shit, Sherlock" award. I'm not an anti-TV bigot, but the amount of sexual references on most television sitcoms make them completely unsuitable for children (not to mention how stupid most of the shows are). I would bet if you asked these kids' parents about the content their teenagers are exposed to in the media, they wouldn't have much problem with it, a sad commentary on the current generation of parents.
