What Kind of Sex Ed Works?

Lately I've heard people say that if parents want their teenage girls to abstain from sex, they should make them listen to Taylor Swift’s song “Fifteen,” or read the wildly popular “Twilight Saga” series of four books. I wondered what reach into the teen psyche popular culture has on individual teen behavior so I conducted a scientific survey. I asked three people involved with sex education how much the popular culture affects teen behavior.
