    Does too much sex on TV cause teenage promiscuity?
    Olivia_WebMD_Staff posted:
    This topic is a spin on the topic suggested by Butterflygarden and seems timely with all the awards shows going on right now:

    This is actually a two-fold debate. First, do you think there is too much sex on TV and in the movies these days? Why or why? And, do you think all the sex that is portrayed leads to more teenagers engaging in sexual behavior?

    Exactly! No one else can say that about him! LMFAO
    JenPBDBP2 replied to An_241873's response:
    As you said, we can't know what kind of trust you have in your husband. The opposite holds true too. You cannot say you have a greater trust in your husband that people who have engaged in premarital sex could possibly know.

    That was my only point.

    "Well, I object to all this sex on the television. I mean, I keep falling off!"

    (thank you Monty Python)
