Transcript of Have You Been Influenced?

Does the media have an influence on girls to get
involved with sex?

Where does it start?
Just like sex, advertising is
Other examples of sex in the media. Sexy Women Disney Movies
Music Videos Magazines Media representations of femininity are restrictive, unrealistic, focused on physical beauty of a type that is virtually unattainable as well as questionable in terms of its characteristics.

-Durham TV
Children and teenagers who are exposed to sex through the media are more likely to engage in sexual activity than those who are not. Sex is EVERYWHERE!!! The average North American girl will watch 5,000 hours of television,
including 80,000 ads, before she starts kindergarten.
Film, television, music and magazines may act as
a kind of "sexual super peer"for teenagers seeking information
about sex. It also suggests that the media have at least as
great an influence on sexual behavior as religion or a child's
relationship with their parents and peers.

Youths who watched more sexual content where more likely to initiate intercourse and progress to more advanced sexual activities in the year following the beginning of the study. Youths in the 90th percentile of TV sex viewing had a predicted probability of intercourse initiation that was approximately double that of youths in the 10th percentile. Basically, kids with higher exposure to sex on TV were almost twice as likely than kids with lower exposure to initiate sexual intercourse.

Yet on land it's much prefered for ladies not to say a word
And after all dear, what is idle babble for?

True gentlemen avoid it when they can
But they dote and swoon and fawn
On a lady who's withdrawn
It's she who holds her tongue who get's a man
