Teens, Music, and Sex
A recent study found that teens who listen to music with sexual undertones have sex sooner than their peers.
Do you think that the music your child listens to influences him or her to have sex?
|27%|| Definitely. Explicit music lyrics are extremely influential in our children's lives, and we should therefore limit their exposure.|
|34%|| Somewhat. Music can have an influence on a teen's decision to have sex, but making sure our children are well-informed about sex education is more important than censoring their music choices.|
|13%|| Probably not. Teens with a greater interest in having sex at a young age might seek out explicit music.|
|26%|| No. Certain kids just have sex sooner than others. Music has nothing to do with it.|
