    Re: should they ban violent and sexual realted games?

    A person can use a video game to vent and remove their violent tendencies. A person can play Grand Theft Auto or Halo or a fighting game and use that as a medium in the same sort of sense of punching a wall or screaming into a pillow. It's better to shoot at polyons than at real people. It's for the truly unbalanced people that cannot distinguish between reality and fiction that we should worry about. It's a parent's duty to reinforce that fact to their children; that it is all fun and games and none of it is real. It's like how children imitate Superman and jump off from roofs, believing that they too can fly. Same sense. Different situation.

    False. It's actually the other way around.
    no your wrong here is an article for the kids exposed to music. im fining the video game article now

    Study links teen sex, lyrics

    August 7, 2006

    BY LINDSEY TANNER





    Teens whose iPods are full of music with raunchy, sexual lyrics start having sex sooner than those who prefer other songs, a study found.

    Whether it's hip-hop, rap, pop or rock, much of popular music aimed at teens contains sexual overtones. Its influence on their behavior appears to depend on how the sex is portrayed, researchers found.

    Songs depicting men as ''sex-driven studs,'' women as sex objects and with explicit references to sex acts are more likely to trigger early sexual behavior than those where sexual references are more veiled and relationships appear more committed, the study found.

    Teens who said they listened to lots of music with degrading sexual messages were almost twice as likely to start having intercourse or other sexual activities within the following two years as were teens who listened to little or no sexually degrading music.

    Among heavy listeners, 51 percent started having sex within two years, versus 29 percent of those who said they listened to little or no sexually degrading music.

    'So common, it's accepted'



    Exposure to lots of sexually degrading music ''gives them a specific message about sex,'' said lead author Steven Martino, a researcher for Rand Corp. Boys learn they should be relentless in pursuit of women and girls learn to view themselves as sex objects, he said.

    The study, based on interviews with 1,461 participants, appears in the August issue of Pediatrics today.

    Natasha Ramsey, a 17-year-old from New Brunswick, N.J., said she sometimes listens to sexually explicit songs because she likes the beat.

    ''I won't really realize that the person is talking about having sex or raping a girl,'' she said. Even so, the message ''is being beaten into the teens' heads,'' she said. ''We don't even really realize how much.''

    ''A lot of teens think that's the way they're supposed to be, they think that's the cool thing to do. Because it's so common, it's accepted,'' said Ramsey, a teen editor for Sexetc.org, a teen sexual health Web site.

    Benjamin Chavis, chief executive officer of the Hip-Hop Summit Action Network, a coalition of musicians and industry executives, said explicit music lyrics are a cultural expression that reflects ''social and economic realities.''

    ''We caution rushing to judgment that music more than any other factor is a causative factor'' for teens initiating sex, Chavis said.

    Other factors cited



    Martino said the researchers tried to account for other factors that could affect teens' sexual behavior, including parental permissiveness, and still found explicit lyrics had a strong influence.

    However, Yvonne K. Fulbright, a sex researcher, said factors including peer pressure, self-esteem and home environment are probably more influential than the research suggests.

    ''It's a little dangerous to just pinpoint one thing. You have to look at everything that's going on in a young person's life,'' she said. ''When somebody has a healthy sense of themselves, they don't take these lyrics too seriously.''

    I wanna see some real facts here, i mean just because you listen to music that has sex related stuff that doesn't mean that you would have sex sooner.

    Whether it's hip-hop, rap, pop or rock, much of popular music aimed at teens contains sexual overtones. Its influence on their behavior appears to depend on how the sex is portrayed, researchers found
    It is something called beign yourself.

    Teens who said they listened to lots of music with degrading sexual messages were almost twice as likely to start having intercourse or other sexual activities within the following two years as were teens who listened to little or no sexually degrading music
    It is called curiosity, curiosity killed the cat.

    they can't "ban" them per-say. you could take them off teh shelves of wal-mart, but an individual store can still carry them. and kids shouldn't be playing crap like that, there's a reason for that big M sign.

    thanks to zyta for the sick sig and avy!
