Sexy TV Shows Affect Teen Pregnancy

Shows that treat sex in a positive light, without risk, may lead teens to have unprotected sex "before they're ready to make responsible and informed decisions," says researcher Anita Chandra.

Of the 2,003 teens questioned about TV, twice as many had became pregnant if they watched shows with frequent sexual dialogue, compared to teens who rarely watched those programs. The results included girls who had become pregnant, and boys who had gotten a girl pregnant.

The shows included Sex in the City, Friends, and That 70s Show.
