Explicit Teen Music Linked to Earlier Sex

"Teenagers who listen to music with explicitly sexual lyrics start having sex sooner than those who prefer other songs, a study found. Whether it is hip-hop, rap, pop or rock, much of popular music aimed at teens contains sexual overtones. Its influence on their behavior appears to depend on how the sex is portrayed, researchers found. Songs depicting men as "sex-driven studs" and women as sex objects, and with explicit references to sex acts, are more likely to trigger early sexual behavior than those where sexual references are more veiled and relationships appear more committed, the study found."
