Adolescent sexuality in the United States has experienced many changes in the last 30 years. Key changes include an increased political focus on the topic, which affected the sexual education of all youth, and an explosion of sexual opportunities in the media, especially the Internet, resulting in growing confusions with the teenagers themselves, and fear on the part of their parents. UCSF professor of psychology Dr. Lynn Ponton reviews this important history, and addresses the changes in adolescent sexuality in the first decade of this century, including how to have a conversation with an adolescent about sexual matters.
