Bulletin with Newsweek;2/6/2007, Vol. 125 Issue 6555, p37
The author reflects on the sexual behavior of teenage boys aged 12 in Australia. He found out that adolescent boys are becoming interested in online pornography to find education about sex. He believes that such idea is better than relying on their parents. Because pornography has become the second largest online business, youngsters are expected to be curious. He contends that teenagers found sex as a game, rather than a sacred duty for reproduction.
