Attitudes toward sex have changed over the years

In 2008 hate crime related to sexual orientation impacted 1,706 victims, about 17.6% of total hate crimes that year
Gay and lesbian youth are at higher risk for poor health, depression, suicide attempts, and suicide

SEX & SOCIAL PROBLEMS RELATED TO SEXUALITY

BY: Chelsie Valentine, Brittany Winget & Sierra Holt
Sexual orientation
sexual behaviors as social problems
Abortion
Prostitution
and commercialized vice are defined as "the unlawful promotion of or participation in sexual activities for profit, including attempts. To solicit customers or transport persons for prostitution purposes; to own, manage, or operate a dwelling or other establishment for the purpose of providing a place where prostitution is performed; or to otherwise assist or promote prostitution."
Prostitution can be traced back to Ancient Rome and throughout the Mediterranean, it was not uncommon to find temples that housed prostitutes
In the U.S. prostitution is only legal in certain areas of the state of Nevada, and even then street prostitution is not allowed
In 2010 there were 13,120,947 arrests. 62,668 were from prostitution alone
Why Prostitution
Most females get into prostitution at a young age because they are runaways
There are three distinct stages of becoming a prostitute:
1. Drift- occurs when there is a switch from casual sex to the first incident of exchanging sex for money
2. Transition- women experience ambivalence toward their new role as prostitutes and consider whether they want to continue along this path
3. Professionalization- women identify themselves as prostitutes and no longer feel the need to rationalize their behavior
Sex tourism
Sex tourism
is the practice of people from wealthy nations traveling to less developed countries to experience sexual acts
Thought to be a pleasuring experience, like taking a ride on a gondola in Venice
Objectifies the human body
Pornography
The 1957 case
Roth v. United States
Feminists
Pornography can be traced back to ancient cave drawings of people engaging in sexual acts
PROBLEMS INVOLVING PORN
Research from the mid- 1980s concludes that being exposed to sexually explicit violent materials cause men to act more aggressively toward women
Rape rates were higher where laws related to pornography were more liberal, and states with higher porn sales had more instances of rape
