Chennai Teens think Pre-Marital Sex and Porn are wrong

 

It’s a well-known presumption that youngsters these days have an extremely casual approach towards pre-marital sex and have a free-going attitude towards it. But it turns out, teenagers in Chennai think otherwise; as per a survey.

In a study presented at an international sexology conference held in the city recently, it was revealed that a majority of Class 10 and 11 students (from six schools in the city) thought watching pictures or videos related to sex, falling in love, pre-marital sex, and having sexual thoughts are wrong.

The doctors who conducted the survey were extremely surprised to find this out. Doctors said nearly 1,000 students who participated in the survey represented the views of the student population at large in the city.

The survey showed that at least two out of five students “got the idea of sex” from discussions with friends or peers, and one in four of them used resources on the Internet and other media for information. Almost 90% of the students did not discuss sex-related matters with their parents or caretakers. In fact, a majority of them don’t know how a baby is born and even think that HIV/AIDS can be cured.

“That’s where the problem begins,” said Chennai-based psychologist and sex educator Denzil Peter, who conducted the survey. Chidambaram-based surgeon Dr Kabali Murthy, who attended the conference, said it was extremely important for families to discuss sex.
