Also, rap is associated with more risky sex and a greater likelihood of STIs. The reason for this is that, with the exception of eleven year olds, adolescents feel more pressure from the media and music to be sexually active, they are least likely to seek sexual information from the adults in their life leaving them to be misguided by the messages in music of misogyny and violence or rape, and they overestimate the amount of their adolescent peers who are sexually active due to the large amount of sexual references that are heavy in the music that socializes them (Coyne, 97, 102).

    Males are more likely to engage in sexual activities than females because parents treat them as if they do not have to know all of the facts and boys will be boys.
