Teenagers 'can be corrupted' by Hollywood sex scenes
The Telegraph ^ | 7/19/2012 | Andrew Hough

Posted on 07/18/2012 6:41:06 PM PDT by Wicket

Watching sex scenes in Hollywood films can make children more promiscuous and sexually active from a younger age, a new study has suggested.

Psychologists concluded that teenagers exposed to more sex on screen in popular films are likely to have sexual relations with more people and without using condoms.

The study, based on nearly 700 popular films, found that watching love scenes could "fundamentally influence" a teenager's personality . . .

Dr O'Hara added: “These movies appear to fundamentally influence their personality through changes in sensation-seeking, which has far-reaching implications for all of their risk-taking behaviours.”

A previous survey of films from 1950 to 2006 found that 84 per cent of movies contain sexual content.

How many billions of tax payer dollars have been spent to tell us what common sense already dictates?

I definitely was corrupted by Hollywood sex scenes after my parents got HBO in 1976 but then I got old and boring again.

They key thing is really two parts:

1) Yes, we've known this for years.
2) It's very deliberate -- after all: we've known this for years.

Hollywood wants people to think it is all about "artistic expression". This is false. Most of the power brokers in Hollywood are truly evil, and it is very much their desire to corrupt our culture. They do this on purpose.

Somehow, I knew this 50 years ago, and capitalized on it frequently.

You wouldn't believe what happened to me during and after "Bye-Bye Birdie".

Yep-—they are normalizing dysfunctional behavior intentionally, so that children will be unable to have long-lasting productive relationships. Without Virtue, there can be no freedom. Sex is the easiest way to corrupt children and destroy morality. (Cultural Marxists—Marcuse who designed Sex Ed for schools). Schools along with media has been trying to destroy Christian Ethics in our children since 1970.

Any behavior modeled to children on a regular basis, will become normal. They are trying to make group sex common-—to destroy the Natural Family. Marx loathed the Natural Family because it takes loyalty from the State and good parents teach their own children and don’t allow indoctrination by the State.

The Marxists want the minds of all the children and parents can corrupt their thinking so they learn what Truth (God) is. Radical egalitarianism demands no special relationships-—therefore, promiscuous sex (like in Brave New World) is necessary to prevent special biological connections.

Destroy the concept of mother and father and babies are just left to the State to raise. That is why the government destroyed the marriage contract and forced most women to work if they had young children. They need to destroy the maternal instinct—destroy the emotional development and bonding of children so they will be like the Hitler Youth with no loyalty or love for family.

Biological attachments are also being destroyed to destroy the emotional development of children. Insecure people make great useful idiots.

Yep, I agree. There once was a time when the kids and parents watched movies together, and the parents would never allow the watching of such nasty films.

The dang Liberal Commies are screwed up and hell bent on the destruction of our country.

In the internet age, teenagers see more hardcore online than at the movies.

This study is out of date.

I recently discovered the world of K-Drama (Korean one season shows), especially the romantic comedies.

I like the romance better than anything on US television. The closest thing to sex is a morning after scene where shoulders are shown (some married couples are in matching pajamas). The raciest so far had a guy in boxers getting out of bed and putting his pants on. That’s all you get. Female lead characters do turn down their partners and waiting until marriage is as common as sleeping together as engaged couples or seriously dating couples. The only one night stand (which really wasn’t) had an ugly aftermath.

Because there is no focus on bed scenes like in the U.S., there is a lot more sensuality, romance, and conflict. The
characters seem much more respectful of their bodies and sex in general. I wish we had a TV station that aired these. I bet they’d have quite a cult following.

he didn't have the discipline to support one or keep faithful to his wife. He needed a way to justify impregnating the maid after all.

You are exactly right. Evil people are deeply disturbed and angry (rebelling against God’s design of Nature)-—only God can remove that anger and hatred, and since Marx rejected God-—he hated and was trying to destroy and enslave as he justified his evil actions by philosophy.

The Leftists are all about ejecting God so they can do whatever their urges dictate=-and they want power over the masses. The Master/Slave society, with the One Worlders with the only freedom and use of the environment. Everyone else are drones to provide for their and their “families” lavish, sick lifestyles.

Marx is all about power and evil.

Not just teenagers. My wife and her girlfriends went to see Magic Mike. I called the theater the next day and asked what a season pass would run.

***You wouldn't believe what happened to me during and after “Bye-Bye Birdie”. ***

Years ago I slipped away from home and went to the movies, something I had not done in years!

I do remember the coming attractions trailer was THE CINCINNATI KID with Ann Margret.

My heart raced! I got sweaty! I was turned on for weeks. I never saw the movie, My heart could not take it.

40 years later I see the same trailer for THE CINCINNATI KID on TCM. Ann Margret was still just as hot, but then I noticed,

No racing heart, no sweat pouring off me, no turn on for weeks.

At that moment I knew I was over the hill so I got me a reservation at the local old folks home. I am now waiting till old age catches up with me so I can turn myself in.

The sad thing is that for too many people, this is actually a controversial finding.

Like somehow, telling a generation of impressionable kids that everybody is having sex with everybody else won’t in any way make them more likely to give in to unwarranted sexual advances, more forward in attempting to sexualize their relationships, and less likely to think there are negative consequences.

But i can guarantee you that for the left, if you told them you were going to take one week of the TV schedule, and have every family pray over dinner and go to church, the left would go apoplectic about how you would “brainwash” people.

I want to know what they’re defining as sexual content. I’m having a hard time believing 84% of movies have what normal people consider sexual content. Really hardly any of the movies I see do, and I see a lot of movies.

The crap that passes for pop music today is probably more harmful. Every song is about going to the club and getting as much booty as possible.

If you are looking for something for teens, I’d start with You’re Beautiful, Goong (Palace), or Boys Over Flowers. Adults, I’d recommend Pasta or Secret Garden.
