Description:
This report describes the findings of a research project commissioned by the Crisis Pregnancy Agency (CPA), and jointly undertaken by Dublin City University (DCU) and the Dun Laoghaire Institute of Art, Design and Technology (DLIADT). Based on the premise that the media, and television in particular, are a source of information about sex for young people (Sutton, Brown, Wilson and Klein 2002, Bragg and Buckingham 2003), the project set out to provide a comprehensive examination of the level of sexual content across the teenage television environment in Ireland and to investigate aspects of young people’s responses to sex on television. Using a combination of content analysis and focus group research, levels of depictions of sex and adolescent responses were explored. This summary first presents the key findings from the focus group research in order to provide a context for the findings from the content analysis which follows.
