Adolescent Sex and Mass Media: A Developmental Approach.
Chapin, John R.
Adolescence, v35 n140 p799-811 Win 2000
Media critics point to adolescents' exposure to "sexy" television and popular music. Developmental transitions lead to increased information seeking, and developmental tasks force adolescents to find information sources other than their parents, implying a link between sexy media and adolescent development. Media research informed by knowledge of adolescent development may be able to clarify this connection, and model development is discussed here. (Author)
