In their article, “Sex, Sexuality, Sexting and Sex Ed,” researchers Brown, Keller, and Stern (2009) state that the Internet has become a sex education class. Based on this article, identify a website that a teen may view to learn more about dating, sex, or romantic love, taking care to not include pornographic sites. Analyze how a teen may interpret the information presented on the website and discuss whether you view this site as having a positive or negative impact on the sexual developmental process of a teen. What would you change on the site? What do you see as beneficial?
