The goal of the task order is to develop a working knowledge base about the use of new media such as the Internet, social networking sites, cell phones, online video games, and MP3 players among adolescents and the potential impact on their sexual activity. The literature review presented in this paper has the specific goals of 1 fostering an understanding of the types of new media available to adolescents, outlining both the platforms that adolescents use to access media and the media itself, and 2 illuminating the potential relations between new media and adolescent sexual activity.

Influence of New Media on Adolescent Sexual Health: Evidence and Opportunities

Does the Effect of Exposure to TV Sex on Adolescent Sexual Behavior Vary by Genre?

Batchelor, J. Kitzinger, E. This paper reports findings from a content analysis of the main messages about sexuality in media outlets consumed by young people. It examines how sexuality is represented and the level of sexual health information provided in some UK magazines and TV programmes targeted at young people.

Adolescent sexuality and the media

Children and teenagers who are exposed to sex through the media are more likely to engage in sexual activity than those who are not, according to new research. A study by an American team has found a direct relationship between the amount of sexual content children see and their level of sexual activity or their intentions to have sex in the future. The survey, published in the Journal of Adolescent Health and online, claims that film, television, music and magazines may act as a kind of "sexual super peer" for teenagers seeking information about sex. It also suggests that the media have at least as great an influence on sexual behaviour as religion or a child's relationship with their parents and peers. More than 1, American children between the ages of 12 and 15 were asked to list the kinds of media they were exposed to regularly.
Additionally, we compared the amount and explicitness of sexual content as well as the frequency of risk and responsibility messages in these four genres. When examined by genre, exposure to sexual content in comedies was positively associated while exposure to sexual content in dramas was negatively associated with attitudes regarding sex, perceived normative pressure, intentions, and engaging in sex one year later. Implications of adolescent exposure to various types of content and for using genre categories to examine exposure and effects are discussed. The sources and content of sex-related information that adolescents receive have important consequences for their subsequent knowledge and behavior Berenson, Wu, Breitkopf and Newman, ; Bleakley, Hennessey, Fishben and Jordan, ; Kirby,
