Tyra Banks Sex Survey

November 17th, 2008

This story appeared on the Today Show last Friday. Now, let’s get past the shocking reality that in America today Tyra Banks can publish research on teenage sexuality. Banks brings up some topics worth wrestling with for youth workers. Here in the YS offices we were disturbed by the findings presented. Of course, we really wanted to examine the data for ourselves. – Are parents really that blind to their kid’s sexuality? Or is it that they don’t want to know? – Do the survey’s findings represent your community? – Do you see the glorification of teen mom’s effecting students attitudes about getting pregnant? – What are the ramifications of this type of behavior for our student ministries? I could go on. But watch the video and share your thoughts in the comments!
