Lyfe Jennings is a platinum-selling R&B artist and songwriter. He is known for inspiring his audience through his song lyrics. The fans love the song “S.E.X.” because it encourages young girls to think about the consequences of sex. Viewing the lyrics from a philosophical approach will show that the writer believes that teenage girls are not ready for sex, so the young girls listening to the song should abstain from sex. Viewing it from the sociological approach will show that the writer sees the negative effects sex has on young girls.
Nowadays, teenagers are becoming more and more influenced by social media and have an easier access to images that are not necessarily appropriate. The female artists are promoting stories of female servitude rather than of female equality. Female artists promote a tasteless lifestyle through overtly sexualized imagery.

Compare the theme of seduction in To his coy mistress and The seduction The poem “to his coy mistress” was written by Andrew Marvell between 1621 and 1678. However “The seduction” (which was written by Eileen McAuley-a woman) was written much later, in the 1980’s. Both poems are about a man trying to persuade a woman to sleep with him. In “THCM” the man uses flattery and persuasion “For lady you deserve this state.” In this poem however we never actually discover if he was successful in persuading her. In “The seduction” he seduces her using alcohol in the hope that she will sleep with him if she is drunk.
In the third section of the poem, Marvell draws his triumphant conclusion. His lover is young and beautiful and they desire one another. He focuses on the urgency of seduction. In contrast, Aphra Behn is revolutionary and our expectations are challenged as she writes her willingness to receivevher lover's attention in a female persona. She presents seduction from a woman's point of view.

Yet simply changing the title cannot efface the masochism and vapidity of the song’s speaker. The speaker’s complete yield of self to a potentially abusive lover is deleterious for teens still forming an identity, especially those seeking guidance and advice about sexual relationships. The effects of Spears’ song remain to be seen; yet this critic feels that the message sent is a harrowing one.
While “To His Coy Mistress” might appear at first sight to be a poem of seduction, it is really a dramatic meditation on the fact that we live constrained by “world and time,” and a prescription for what to do about it. The first stanza sets the tone of mockery. The speaker uses metaphors, hyperboles, irony and imagery to seduce his coy mistress. He begins his poem of seduction with an insult: “Had we but world enough, and time, / This coyness, lady, were no crime.” He calls her a criminal for being so reluctant when they are constrained by world and time. To him, it is a misconduct to not jump right into his arms when they have so little time to live.
Seduction in To His Mistress Going to Bed, Good Morrow, Corinna's Going A- Maying, and To His Coy Mistress Throughout time, one of the greatest challenges mankind has faced is the sexual conquest of womankind. In many cultures today, this challenge has evolved into an intricate courting process that often involves buying the woman flowers, gifts, and meals to persuade her to have sex. Another device that a man might use to seduce a woman is poetry. In the English language, the use of poetry to seduce women may be traced back to the late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries. Cavalier poets such as Robert Herrick, John Donne, and Andrew Marvell embrace this method of seduction, carefully constructing verse with the intent to satisfy their carnal desires.
Even though young people are stereotyped as being more negative when it comes to the issue of sex, not all teenagers are that concerned with it. The author states more teenagers are looking at the outcome of having sex and thinking about the STD issue. Another issue is sex when it comes to parties and drugs. It seems that more and more girls are not getting the necessary understandings of the risks of sex, therefore having it at a younger age. While males are having sex for reasons just to try it out, or because they think they are cool.
It is thought to ensure virginity before marriage and fidelity afterward, and to increase male sexual pleasure.” (UNFPA), female circumcision is used in order to deprive women from their sexuality. Female circumcision is no more than a way to control woman, because of this teenagers who have undergone female circumcision are being forced to submit to religious believes that they themselves may not agree with, “The controversial tradition of FGC sets these immigrants apart from the mainstream culture and may complicate their efforts to adjust to life in the United States and cause intergenerational conflict in some families. For instance, parents may consider it important for their daughters to be cut, regardless of the girls’ wishes, as a way to maintain their identity with the family and its cultural community of origin.” (Akinsulure-Smith 358). The effect of being a circumcised female in adolescence in the Unites States is greater than
Teens then see the sexting ‘problem’ as an actual concern and not just that their parents are being overprotective. This also further develops gender roles in the media, like what was discussed in class. What’s interesting about Degrassi: The Next Generation is that the show is made for teen consumption. The show is made for teenagers and centered around teenagers, so when they write the story that they want to tell about sexting, it’s negative. For adults, sexting can be portrayed positively for some reason, and almost never follows the storyline of someone’s pictures being
