Pediatricians Decry Media’s Depiction of Sex

Pediatricians at the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) again have slammed the mass media’s “unhealthy” depiction of sex.

“Television film, music, and the Internet are all becoming increasingly sexually explicit, yet information on abstinence, sexual responsibility and birth control remains rare,” the AAP said in a statement.

The amount of sexual content on TV nearly doubled between 1997 and 2001, and continues to rise. The AAP said talk about sex on TV occurs as often as 8 to 10 times per hour.

Children exposed to such sexual material are twice as likely to engage in sexually risky behavior at a younger age, and exposure to such material doubles the risk of teen pregnancy.
