Shaping sexual behaviors/sexual scripts
Young People, Sex and Relationships
Open Access: Yes
There is rising concern about the sexual activities and relationships of young people. These concerns are not new, but the rapid expansion of technological possibilities has changed the nature of the debate. Teenagers are the most technology-savvy group in the UK, with much of their social lives conducted online, and it is clear that young people have access to a much less moderated world than previously existed. It no longer makes sense to separate online and offline activities – digital activity is an integral part of young people’s relationships.
