    The Sexualization Of Youth

    A few months ago I started a thread mentioning how women are sort of pressured to get a boyfriend from an early age. This is sort of in that same vein. I have noticed sex being packaged to youth. Many adds feature children who have a clear sexual desire for another youth. Certain shows such as toddlers and tierrras are mainstream now. The movie Bridal Wars for no reason plices in footage of tween lesbians engaged in an almost marriage like ceremony. Even this website features scantily clad preteens in sexual suggestive poses.

    My point is this. We counter-act are laws against underage or child pornography with messages we send to everyone via television or ads or movies.

    Now I am not preaching a gospel of right-winged oppression of ideas and sexuality. Personally it shows that things are merely changing although that sort of change is a little frightening. In about a year I will be 28 and that means that there may very well be a sex symbol come along that is half my age then. It was happened in other areas.

    My thing is this; If we as a society are going to package sexuality to youth we need to make damn certain that we are teaching them safe sex, and consequences. We also need to start making contraceptives and birth control more readily available.

    i agree with you. i walk around my school and see seventh graders making out in the halls, and i know they go home and do so much worse. It's a little scary and your right with the point of consequences. Condoms and Birth Control should be readily available for them, i dont believe the "pull out method" really works when your that young. im not saying that we should say go ahead do it, but if they are going to i would rather they be safe while doing so.

    I wouldnt say this is anything 'new' to our society, even back in the 70's there were lots of youth out having 'fun time', my mother gave birth to me when she was 16 for example.

    Go to this site, it explains a lot dealing with underage kids now days..

    Re: The Sexualization Of Youth

    its nothing new u just see more of it today,than you actually saw back in the day
    and the media doesnt help them understand what happens when u provoke the wrong person, or your thirteen and pregant...it actually makes them want to do it more, the younger they are because they feel like their older, than they actually are. which they think is the kool thing...

    im not blaming parents or tv either, but some parents dont have the skills to explain it because its embassing, or they dont care. I know some people when i was in school, that their parents let them have their boy or girlfriends stay the night, and say nothing against it. Television is sexualize more now, than it ever has been because its a big market for them to show things like that. with there being hbo, playboy and other channels easily ready through dish, direct, or such....how do you not expect a kid to know what sex is by the time their old enough to be interested in the opposite sex.

    birth control and condoms are readily avaible since most mothers take their daughters to their doctors when they find out their having sex, and you can walk into any store, and find condoms right there ready to be used.

    the problem is that most young adult, and preteens dont know how to properly use either, or have no knoweledge of how it works because they dont want to ask. They readily choose not to use one or the other, because of friends, how it feels, they want a baby (which will not keep the mom and dad together).

    its the communication, between parents and kids with everything they see their friends doing and whats on tv, that needs to be explained, and how to use something that will proect them better against something that will impact them for the rest of their lives

    ..........nothing is true, everything is permitted..........

    I agree with you. This has been something I've been thinking about and noticing for a while, and whenever I can I try and speak with others about to still try and understand what, exactly is going on.

    I'm 18 turning 19 in a few months.
    I'm a girl.
    I'm a virgin.


    Tell me, you've heard that before because I'm almost 90% sure you haven't since the '70s. I really, honestly, truly believe I'm a dying breed.

    And that puzzles me.
    It really does.

    I understand where your coming from, but @ the same time there really is a lot more 18 or 19 or even 20 year old virgins around than you think, this is a kind of thing while in high school people really don't want to put that kind of information out, they think its a trend to have sex earlier so they might even go as for as lie to say they've too had sex and are not virgins--

    But in all reality there really isn't a 'normal age' to have sex, it comes down to the maturity level of the couples and what they and their parents feel is right or wrong, don't forget that the Amish get married at early ages such as 15 or 16..

    Re: The Sexualization Of Youth

    I can relate to this, still in my last year of high school. All I hear is things like this, "Oh, did you hear this?" and that and all those things. I, personally have a problem with it. Mainly, I have no life. Therefore, no one to love. Therefore it won't happen anytime soon unless I score lucky. Er...anyways, I hear it a lot...from...well, I was going to say 17 but even that's a little high. I've heard of 15-year-olds in my school 'getting it on' and quite frankly, it's sickening. I'll be honest, sure I've got those "Teen feelings" but by no means does that mean that it needs to be done. Honestly, use a little self-control or something...it's like an infection, and those immune are what? Outcasts or just without someone? I don't like it at all, really. But I can't do anything to change it (God knows people won't listen to ME, the only one with common sense...) so I just sit back and grit my teeth through this..."Age."
