….rather than “becoming a substitute,” I would say that commercial media is being misappropriated as a tool for sex education. And though I’m sure there are some great for-profit sex ed resources available, the vast majority of commercial media is not at all intended to be conventionally educational. But, while we as a culture would never dream of taking “real” driving tips from Dominic Toretto, we definitely seem ready and willing to take “real” sex tips from commercial media. This is a serious problem.
