I think the media glorifies underage sex, and this is often seen by people who are not mature or responsible enough to have a sexual relationship, and this cause the stalks to drop too many babies from younger stalks.

Girls have these magazines which serve quite a major part in sex education - boys on the other hand have no really 'legitimate' resource other than school and parents *remembers trying to get the occasional peak at Eurotrash while flicking through TV channels.
Not only do they do this, but as Mad Caddie has said, they 'glorify underage sex'. It is true, it's all very well having some random on the problems page telling kids not to have sex underage and telling them about diseases, but when every other page in the magazine is full of models far older than the intended audience, and you have pages telling young teenage girls 'how to get that guy to want you', it's really quite void. If they haven't had any outside form of education about what sex and relationships are about, they won't understand that this is what the media is trying to do. It can't just be left down to one group, it needs to be a co-ordinated response from society as a whole.
