Sex Education On TV
Turns out TV entertainment shows are a good source of sex education for teenagers.
Teenagers can get sex education as well as laughs by watching TV series such as "Friends," a new study found.
Watching or discussing a show with an adult reinforces or clarifies the lessons carried by television, according to the study released Monday by Santa Monica-based Rand Corp., a nonprofit research group.
"We've always known that teenagers get useful information about sex from factual reporting and advice-oriented media, but now we know they can get this information from entertainment television programs as well," said Rebecca Collins, lead author of the report.
So, watch, laugh, learn, and discuss.
