    There is a lot of money to be made by exploiting the teen sex drive.

    Too bad the kids lives are ruined in the process.

    I see it on TV, movies, and in real life. Teens are allowed to wear, do, and say whatever they want....and society seems to be okay with it. Sad.

    Overall, much of the "entertainment" in today's theatres is geared toward teenagers. So, I would go with a yes on this one!

    It may encourage teenage sexual activity but not necessarily promiscuity.

    But this shot really doesn't work for this question.
    American Beauty sex scenes were between a grown man and a naïve teenage girl, not to mention the scenes being a mere fantasy.

    Holywood does promote sex, sexy clothes, the urge to be skinny even if it kills them. Girls that are 12 act like they are 18, crazy.

    Pshh yes. I'll admit that it has influenced me. Not to walk around wearing barely anything and hooking up with a lot of guys, but it definitely opened my eyes to things.

    A teenage persons mind is still forming and when exposed to lewd and lascivious behavior it changes their way of thinking, thinking that it's okay.

    The film and music industry does give teenagers the push to go through with sex, but they were already curious about it before.
    Show a kid how great sex is and they'll want to experience it themselves.

    Teens have been having sex with each other for like, well, ever. It's called Biology. And if you think Hollywood is "sexy time" kindly turn your attention to nude news in Europe not to mention the nude beaches (Go Europe!.) Us westerners are actually quite prudish.

    Do movies encourage teen promiscuity? Yes, many do.
    Do all movies encourage teen promiscuity? Of course not. Not all movies have sex scenes; not all movies even go as far as to give the main character a "love" interest.
    Is it the only thing that does? No. Television shows (even more so than movies, I'd wager), commercials, peer pressure, bad parenting, and the internet (rule 34) are all there, too. Media in general promotes it.
    Do they do it on purpose? No. They just want to sell their movie.
    Will censoring the media for your children help solve the problem? If you can even manage it, I doubt it will make that much of a difference. If you're willing to take that step, you're already the sort of parent who will talk to their child about why what they're watching on screen is not acceptable for them yet in real life, and why it's not.
    Is it the cause? No. Puberty and biology are the causes of teen promiscuity. The media just gives them another nudge closer.

    EVERYTHING encourages promiscuity when you're a teen. A rouge breeze can leave a poor 16 year old boy with the worst hard-on of the day! And poor girls run around with their booties out trying to be sexy before they even know what sexy feels like.

    It's hormones - they're going to have sex *gasp*

    ...get over it.
  • Lolita666 Scatter... 2012/07/20 01:18:42

    No, it shouldn't.
    This person gave a valid reason to choose "no" as their answer.

    The question is "Does Hollywood encourage teen promiscuity?" the person said that everything encourages teen promiscuity therefore Hollywood encourages teen promiscuity. So according to their comment, their answer should be yes. If the question was "Is Hollywood the ONLY thing that encourages teen promiscuity?" then their comment and answer would make sense. I wasn't even talking to you in the first place...

    Not just Hollywood, but the popular media.

    Remember Friday the 13th (and similar films)? Back then you had (sometimes underage) premarital sex, you died. One of the big rules to survive a horror/slasher movie back then. And in Scream they directly referenced it when a character was glad to be a virgin because that was why he survived.

    I don't know if it actually makes a difference, and whether that difference is good or bad, but that's not how sex is treated by Hollywood now.
