Girls ‘being pressured to look like porn stars’ by boys growing up on pornography
"Pressure: Girls feel like they have to resemble porn stars [yuk]
Girls are under increasing pressure to look like porn stars due to the negative impact pornography has had on boys’ idea of what the opposite sex should look like, it has been claimed.
Young women are trying to live up to unattainable ideals of boys who want their girlfriends to look like XXX stars, Helen Porter, a member of the Association of Teachers and Lecturers (ATL), argued.
‘The desirable body image has become more extreme, they are all trying to have a narrow waist, long, slim legs and big boobs. That’s the desirable thing,’ she said."

Study: Sexual activity is rare among young adolescents
"Contrary to popular belief [?], sexual activity among very young adolescents is not more prevalent today than in the past, says a report in Pediatrics magazine.
The study also finds that sex among the same group is frequently involuntary.
In spite of public perception, sexual activity is exceedingly rare among the youngest adolescents, ages 10 to 12, a new report shows. Among older teens, however, sexual activity remains common."
