I agree with Joyce Garity that some of the adverts in teen fashion magazines are to blame for deteriorating morals in the society. The adverts are too suggestive that they end up brain washing the innocent children. An advertisement of Liz Claiborne fragrances showing a couple sprawled on their bed is a perfect example. After seeing this, the teenagers start fantasizing and would be tempted to think that their life is not complete if they are not practising the same. They end up trying this, and before they know it, the worst has happened and the consequences are with them.
In addition, it is absurd to feature a naked girl in a teen magazine in the name of advertising cologne. Though the company sales will go up, it is not worth the harm it is causing the society. Above buying the cologne, the teenagers may be tempted to pose naked like the girl in the advert. In their minds, they are out to be famous among their peers. However, they may end up engaging in sexual activities that would ruin their young lives (Soble, 2008, P. 96).
As Joyce Garity states, any teenager would be excited to see a young couple display affection publicly. In an advert, a young girl is laying on a luxurious bed in a dimly light room with her lover making her nails. If a suggestive picture like this has to appear in a magazine, it should not be a teenage magazine. Teenagers’ minds are easily washed away by anything they lay their eyes on.

Teenagers’ world is full of sexual spontaneity and playfulness. They will take less or no time thinking about a responsible life. Instead, they admire musicians, actors, rock stars and other celebrities whose lives are full of sexual drama. These are their role models, and their talk is about which musician has slept with many women. The young adults rush to the

The controversy over same sex marriages is popular because the society itself has not accepted homosexuality. Due to religious influences people still think that homosexuality in unfavorable terms.
Gender roles played outside the “established” norms are considered to be unacceptable. The author discusses how gender roles and accompanying expectations can be detrimental to our society, starting from childhood to adulthood and also both sides of the issue in order to establish a balanced discussion.
The pregnancy in the teenage creates undesirable consequences for the teen mothers, fathers, and also their children. To begin with, the teen parents usually confront with high public cost in looking after their child. They find it difficult to afford the high cost of diapers, bottles, clothes and other numerous baby items.
According to the research findings it can therefore be said that sex is much common in our new millennia society especially among teenagers and this is one the deeds, which is frequently talked about. The sex talks are not restricted in the bedrooms now; it is a topic of interest and pleasure among the adolescents.
The basic instincts on which human pleasure is derived include food, giving and sex.1 People have stereotyped the kind of lifestyle, economic and social status that they would love to attain. Nonetheless, factors such as financial ability, work achievement, good health or attractiveness in appearance do not necessarily translate into happiness.
Not to mention that there is a plethora of other matters of social and material human interactions that are affected, arguably, positively or negatively by the institution of marriage. Not to take any sides in the argument but while it is arguable that the definition of marriage depends on the majority’s perception of the institution; the origins of marriage are undoubtedly religious.
Thus, in an important research analysis, Kathleen Phillips-Lewis summarises that "gender stereotyping has not only put pressure on our women but also on our men, who equally did not conform or fit in to pre-defined European male stereotypes. It is not in keeping with the notion of 'machismo' to do lots of things considered to be rooted within the female domain, like cry, show emotion, tend to babies.
According to psychologists, an emotional and sexual bond is formed by two people in marriage that is based on an important element, understanding or intimacy. (Leiblum, pp. 11-13) A long-term relationship is formed by the effective management of intimacy by two people in a
During this time period, men were considered superior to women which put women into a much more passive role. This could very well be the underpinning for our modern conception of gender and the appropriate roles of the different
