Music influences teenagers’ view of sex

Topic / Culture

We’ve all heard the excuse from our teenagers, “Oh, I don’t listen to the words, I just like the music,” but if the song happens to come on the radio they know every word. Chron.com posted an article that supports Underage Sex Is Tied to Raunchy Music, backing youth pastors’ hunch that lyrics have a big influence on shaping teenagers’ view of sex and the opposite gender. This study suggests that “teens who listen to explicit lyrics seem to lose their virginity sooner.” Well worth the read.
