Interesting note: back in 2006, a secondary analysis of data explored the correlation between television viewing and the risk of sexual initiation by young adolescents.

It concluded that “among young adolescents who reported strong parental disapproval of sex, watching television 2 or more hours per day and lack of parental regulation of television programming were each associated with increased risk of initiating sexual intercourse within a year.”
