A huge crowd of people at a concertMuch of popular music aimed at teens contains sexual overtones. However, researchers have found that teens who said they listened to lots of music with degrading sexual messages were almost twice as likely to start having intercourse or other sexual activities within the following two years as were teens who listened to little or no sexually degrading music.

Quoted by a researcher for Rand Corp:
"Exposure to lots of sexually degrading music gives them a specific message about sex," said lead author Steven Martino, a researcher for Rand Corp. in Pittsburgh. "Boys learn they should be relentless in pursuit of women and girls learn to view themselves as sex objects", he said. "We think that really lowers kids' inhibitions and make them less thoughtful about sexual decisions and may influence them to make decisions they regret."
