For example, pedophiles often prefer children close to puberty who are sexually inexperienced and use pornographic photos to demonstrate to their victims what they want them to do. Moreover, pornography often promotes sexual promiscuity and other activities that if pursued, would undoubtedly contribute to unintended pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases (STD’s) such as the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). According to the article of The Effects of Pornography, Patrick F. Fagan (2010), it was well stated that “Pornography’s frequent depiction of intercourse without condoms (87 percent of the time) is an invitation for the promiscuous to contract a STD to have a child out of wedlock and to have multiple sex partners. Pornography also promotes sexual compulsiveness, which doubles the likelihood of
Children and young people are at risk of bullying when using the internet, mobile phone and other technologies as it provides an anonymous method of bullying by way of text messages and emails which can be emotionally damaging to a child or young person. Racist, anti-social and cult groups use modern technologies to preach and spread what they are and what they stand for, leaving children and young people very venerable to becoming part of their activity which is unhealthy, unsafe and often illegal. Children and young people are very venerable to predators of all natures using the internet and other technologies, by the encouragement of giving out personal information about them and others close to them, which will put not
The next reason why juveniles commit delinquent acts is child abuse. If a child is constantly being abused it is highly likely that they will turn violent to protect themselves. Once they turn violent they are most likely to commit delinquent acts. The next reason is drug abuse if they are hooked on drugs they will commit delinquent acts so that they support their habit. Drug use will cause a juvenile to act violent.
Positives with the Internet and Growing Up The youth generation today uses the internet so much in their daily lives it has created an epidemic. The epidemic caused uproar of different ways of learning, communicating, teaching and even shopping or advertising done online. Technologies such as ipad, laptops and smart phones make internet access unbelievably easy. Since it is so easy, “Growing up Online”, a document by Frontline that aired on Januarary 18, 2008, claimed that the internet has caused many issues in the youth’s lives. One problem the internet caused stated in the documentary is, it is very hard for parents and authorities to regulate what kids do on the computer.
Under Wyo. Stat.

Sexual exploitation includes involving children and youth in creating pornography and sexually explicit websites.
Individual Assignment: Media Portrayal of Sexuality and Adolescents Brian K. Jones University of Phoenix There is growing concern about young people's exposure to sexual content through television and other electronic media and about its potential effects on their sexual attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors. Researchers have documented the growing prevalence of sexual talk and portrayals of sexual behavior in televised media, as well as associations between adolescent viewing patterns and their sexual activities (Gruber & Grube, 2000). Although sexual content in the media can affect any age group, adolescents may be particularly vulnerable. Adolescents may be exposed to sexual content in the media during a developmental period when gender roles, sexual attitudes, and sexual behaviors are being shaped. This group may be particularly at risk because the cognitive skills that allow them to critically analyze messages from the media and to make decisions based on possible future outcomes are not fully developed (Gruber & Grube, 2000).
shows, vitiates the purity and innocence of young minds. On the internet, children under the age of 18 can enter adult websites; such as Xtube, Fakku, and Redtube. Sure they ask for the age when you first enter the site, but lying is always possible. Though many people argue that it’s up to the kids to decide what they want to watch the rated contents or not, but if there is no internet then the kids wouldn’t even be watching it in the first place. Maybe adult pornography sites don’t apply to every single kid, but how about the violent, gory, and explicit video games that elementary school children play?
Depression and suicide goes back to preteens/children not being emotionally or physiologically mature enough to have sex. Since many young people will have sex to show the other partner that they “love” them, when in reality it isn't love and often leaves one of the two heartbroken which may lead to depression. Meeker also discuses obscene rap lyrics, lurid reports of teen orgies and the high school "craze" for oral sex and blames: post-60s permissiveness, the misguided association of condoms with safety and sexualized media imagery and gives examples of, the popular magazine Cosmopolitan and television series Ally McBeal. In the end her
The impact that the media in the United States has on the minds of the youth has changed into an increasingly dangerous issue. While the media has many positive influences there are still yet many negative behaviors exercised by many teenagers and young adults. Amongst these behaviors is the acceptance of how sex is ok amongst teenagers. The media has become a pool of promiscuity which has led to the spread of many STD’s including HIV and AIDS. This essay describes how the media has led to the rise in promiscuity and thus leading to the continuous growth of the HIV Pandemic giving other countries a reason to believe that the people in the United States have poor cultural values.
This can lead into severe and even life threatening situations as the child begins to build a relationship with the person. Some predators will work their way into gaining trust before slowly introducing sexually explicit content in the conversations while others maybe faster and upfront with sexually explicit content. Many times, predators may record or make use of conversations to blackmail or harass a child. The most common stereotype of the online predator is a middle-aged man with no job who lives alone and whose day only consists of luring young children and teenagers through the Internet. Though this may be partly true, the real statistics are interesting.
