Sex and Ipods

The Boston Globe reports a study linking sexually explicit lyrics played on Ipods and earlier sexual activity by teens.

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 next two years, compared with 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.

I don’t think we needed a study to make this connection.
