Are teens influenced by sex on TV?

LAUREN RUVO INTERVIEWED STUDENTS AT THE MEADOWS

ALLYSON HASKINS, SENIOR

“Yes, because it puts an image in their head that everyone has sex and there are no consequences, and sometimes there are, such as getting pregnant or contracting an STD. Sex is not something you should do casually as a teenager.”

DYLAN PARR, SENIOR

“I think younger teens are more influenced than older teens because the shows seem to downplay the seriousness of sex.”

SIERRA STENZEL, JUNIOR

“I think that advertised sex has a negative effect on kids in the sense that they are learning about sex at a younger age than their parents may have wanted them to.”

AJ BERGER, SOPHOMORE

“No, I don’t think so because I have seen it in movies and I do not feel obligated to have sex.”

KIRK REED, SENIOR

“Yes, as far as younger kids are concerned because you do not need to put unnecessary thoughts in young kids’ heads. As far as teenagers go, they are already exposed to sex and understand it.”

JACQUELINE ASAD, JUNIOR

“No, as far as I am concerned it is a part of everyday life and we would learn about it regardless as to whether or not it’s on television.”
