13)Does listening to popular music and watching music videos with explicit sexual lyrics and actions increase the likelihood that teenagers will become sexually active? Why or why not?

In my opinion, listening and watching music videos with explicit sexual lyrics and actions increase the likelihood that teenagers will become sexually active because we all know that teenagers are curious and have an imaginative mind. In watching and listening to these scenes and lyrics, teenagers got informations and ideation such that of sex will enter their minds and there would be a chance that “doing” it will follow. Media is a very strong influence to people nowadays, it relays informations which are so-called “IN”. And watching these kinds of music videos or listening to them, especially that teenagers are so into what is popular at the moment, they will be encourage to involve in that kind of thing, and one prominent today is that of music videos and lyrics with sexual themes. As I surf the net, to research in this topic, most of my readings convey that a lot of enthusiasm towards sex are seen in the television. Therefore, parents should play a responsibility to be able to guide their teenagers to do things right, to be not carried away to what they are seeing in their surroundings which are not appropriate for them.

I want to share one of my researches in the net:

The relationship between exposure to sexual music videos and young adults' sexual attitudes.
by Zhang, Yuanyuan^Miller, Laura E.^Harrison, Kristen
Journal of Broadcasting & Electronic Media • Sept, 2008 •

Understanding sexual relationships and gender-specific norms is a fundamental task involved in the social development of adolescents and young adults (Arnett, 2000). Although parents and peers are generally acknowledged to be important sources of messages about sexuality and gender schemas (Ballard & Morris, 1998; Sutton, Brown, Wilson, & Klein, 2002), the media and television in particular are believed to play a critical role in sexual socialization among young people (Arnett, 2002; Brown & Steele, 1995). Content analyses show that sexual references and innuendoes are prevalent in television programming (Olson, 1994; Ward, 1995). With compelling story lines and appealing images, television provides numerous examples of sexual and romantic interactions such as dating, initiating sexual activities, and gender-appropriate sexual behaviors (Ward, 2002). These highly accessible materials containing explicit information about sexuality help young people to construct their own perceptions about sexual relationships as well as gender roles. However, in spite of television's potential role as a socializing agent, the bulk of sexual themes and portrayals in this medium are inaccurate, stereotypical, and unrealistic (Huston, Wartella, & Donnerstein, 1998). Because of television's slanted view of sexuality, concern has been raised that heavy exposure to these images may have harmful effects on young people's sexual socialization. One genre that has received strong public criticism, but remains empirically under-examined, is music videos.
This concern has heightened following the publication of recent longitudinal research demonstrating that listening to music with sexually explicit lyrics was associated with a greater likelihood of initiating intercourse and advanced sexual behaviors among a sample of 1242 adolescents (Martino et al., 2006).

YEs....I agreed to Ms. Samarita, Media and televesion in particular are believed to play a critical role in sexual socialization among young people. Parents should play a great responsibility to guide thier teenagers to do the things right and better in thier life. And also, teenagers should know their responsibilities. Like a Star @ heaven
