Teens Who Look At Pornography More Likely to Participate in Risky Sexual Behavior

July 27, 2009 at 12:56 pm Leave a comment

A recent study by Debra K. Braun-Courville, M.D., and Mary Rojas, Ph.D, found that 96% of teens have internet access, and 55% of those surveyed admitted to looking at pornography online. Perhaps this isn’t a big surprise, considering that many teens are curious about sex and the fact that pornography is increasingly accessible. However, there are dangers associated with viewing pornography, the study found. For instance, teens who looked at online pornography were far more likely to have multiple sexual partners in the previous 3 months, were more likely to have used alcohol during those encounters, and were more likely to have participated in other risky sexual behavior.

The solution: Talk to your teens about the dangers of internet pornography.
