Teen novels today can be fairly racy—with two-thirds of them making sexual references ranging from innuendo and "intimate touching" to intercourse, says a new study in a recent issue of the Journal of Sex Research.
"Results show that adolescent novels are replete with sex-related information, especially in novels targeted to girls," write researchers from Brigham Young University, which is run by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. "These sexual behaviors range from passionate kissing and romantic ideation to sexual intercourse."
