Study Links Explicit Lyrics to Teen Sex

A new study raises the issue of whether or not listening to sexually aggressive lyrics prompts teenagers to have sex at an earlier age. See Breitbart. The study, in which researchers at the University of Pittsburgh graded the sexual aggressiveness of song lyrics, used songs on the US Billboard chart by popular artists.

First, the investigators graded the song lyrics from the least to the most sexually degrading. Then they asked 711 students, aged 15 to 16, at three local high school about their sexual behavior and their music preferences.
