Sex is number one on kids agenda's these days...Is there any way to knock it down lower on their priority list? In the society that we live abstinence is a thing that is rarely practiced. You have kids having sex as early as 12. There have been hundreds of commercials on STD's, AIDS campaigns, and other methods to get people to understand the risk of having unprotected sex. They have even gone as far as to say that the only safe sex is no sex.
It seems like despite the plea for the youth to stop having sex, more and more teens think that it is the norm. Waiting til marriage is almost the thing of the past. Sex is rarely even valued or considered a special connection between two people. And these days Virgins have to be in some type of secret society that only come out every blue moon.
With the increasing number of sexual images in movies, television shows, commercials, songs and other media outlets...will kids ever see that sex can wait? Is it how its being said or what is being said? Ultra Teen Choice takes a stab at it....
