The massage parlor is already swallowing clients through its dark doorway; cheap perfume hangs in the air. The Home of Body Building exudes a sour sweat from the hall where older men are eyeing prancing young boys. But in a nearby shelter for former prostitutes the scene is demure, as girls settle down for group therapy. This day, a visitor is taking Polaroid pictures and passing them around. The pictures make the girls look like small, spindly birds, rather than sex objects.

T urns out young people have finally realized that both males and females, desire, and care about sex. Even though teenage boys consume more pornography and think about it more often, a new study that interviewed Swedish year-olds discovered that teen boys and girls fantasize about the same things. Not only that, but teenage girls are more interested in pornography than conventional thinking leads us to believe. Based on the findings, there are no differences between the number of teen males and females who say their sexual behavior is influenced by pornography in a big way which, might not be a good thing. Unsurprisingly the teens that do watch pornography have more favorable attitudes towards it in general. And, the females in the study were more experienced than the boys in oral, anal, and vaginal sex.
