Sex chat mass
Abortion is a taboo topic, too controversial for commercial television and magazines.
Homosexual and transgendered youth rarely find themselves represented in the mainstream media.
Some of the earliest, such as Columbia University's were established to provide college students with easily accessible health information and to offer sexual health information.
A number of the current sites that focus on sexual health include sections for users to send in questions that a panel of experts will answer.
Government regulation of media content is unlikely and probably the least desirable remedy, so two strategies for working with the media hold greater promise. Kaiser Family Foundation, Advocates for Youth and the National Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy, have been working with Hollywood scriptwriters and television and music producers as well as magazine editors to encourage more sexually responsible media content.
Others, such as the American Social Health Association's also include chat rooms in which teenagers can discuss sexual concerns with their peers.
