Does Sex in Movies Encourage Young People to Engage in Sex

On the O'Reilly Factor tonight they were debating a study about whether young people who viewed sex in movies were more prone to engage in sex. To me this is a no-brainer, of course watching sex encourages sex. People do not view pornography because it has no affect on them, they watch it because it produces the pleasurable feeling of sexual arousal. Sex scenes in R-rated movies are little more than soft-porn.

Speaking from experience, an experience I am not proud of, watching or reading about sex produces sexual arousal, sexual arousal results in wanting to engage in the sex act. Young people who view sex in movies, magazines or read about it are more than likely going to be aroused by it and face a greater temptation to give-in to their sexual desires. It is a dangerous time we are living in, for their own well-being people should refrain from sex until they are united to a member of the opposite sex in Holy Matrimony; however, the bombardment of sexual images from our sex saturated society is making it harder and harder for people to keep themselves sexually pure.

I have good news though to all people, young and old alike, although sexually purity seems like a lofty goal that is unreachable, there is a man who lived 2000 years ago who was not only sexually pure but absolutely sinless. He died for the sins of the world and God raised Him from the dead. If people will embrace Him as Lord and Saviour, their sins will be forgiven and they will be given His pure life as their own. With His life comes the power to life a life of sexual purity and so much more. His name is Jesus, do you know Him.  I did not mean to start preaching, but if you got some good news, you should share it. Feel free to e-mail me at for how to begin a relationship with Jesus.
