Was Mom right after all? Did all those dirty movies really warp your mind?
Dartmouth College has just released a study that claims that kids between the ages of 12 and 14 who were exposed to sexual content in movies had more sexual partners at an earlier age (and engaged in less safe sex with them).
The report claims that "for every hour of exposure to sexual content on-screen, participants were more than five times more likely to lose their virginity within six years." The study also analyzed 684 of the highest-grossing films released between 1998 and 2004 for "sexual content" (including everything from sex scenes to "heavy kissing") and found that, as the Telegraph reports:
"Films with the most sexual content were Summer of Sam, a Spike Lee crime film about a series of 1970s murders in New York (323 seconds), 40 Days of 40 Nights, staring Josh Hartnett who tries to stay celibate during Lent (207 seconds) and American Pie, about a group of high school students trying to lose their virginity (206 seconds). Even children’s films were found to have sexual content such the G-rated the Princess Diaries (42 seconds)."
Dr. Ross O'Hara, who led the study, concludes that “These movies appear to fundamentally influence [teens'] personality through changes in sensation-seeking, which has far-reaching implications for all of their risk-taking behaviours.”
"Sexual content" like kissing? Whatever you say, Mr. Hays. (Who was your control group, anyway? Amish people?) And consider the age range studied. Kids between the ages of 12 and 14 losing their virginity within 6 years (i.e., between 18 and 20)? We have a feeling that has less to do with American Pie and Summer of Sam than with senior prom and freshman dorm rooms. So take this study with a grain of salt- maybe there's some truth to it, maybe there isn't.
But there's one thing that is still definitely NOT true: that masturbation gives you hairy palms. Trust us, we've been conducting research on the topic for decades.
They're 18 and last, and they've grown up real fast! Today, we pay tribute to those happy trail-blazing starlets who were brave enough to strip down on screen at the age of 18. From Uma Thurman to Asia Argento, these babes are eighteen! Eighteen! Eighteen! Eighteen and I like it!
Pre-teen girls love Kristen Stewart because she plays lovestruck teen Bella in the wildly popular Twilight saga. Adults love her because she's a long-legged tough girl with a scowl that's more sexy than angry. Although she gave us some chaste yet hot underwear shots in Twilight and Adventureland, and gave Dakota Fanning a girl-girl grope in The Runaways, Kristen hasn't run away with the idea of going really bad... yet.
Stewart is presently filming the movie adaptation of Jack Kerouac's beloved beat novel On the Road, due in theaters in 2011, and Life & Style magazine looked over the script reports: "Her character, 16-year-old Marylou, has a threesome with a couple of hotties, asks to watch two people have sex and brags about loving to perform oral sex."
Note that this is exactly the career path that skin fave Christina Ricci opted to take: spooky child actor to Hall of Fame nudity in one movie. Remember, Christina had been seen as the sweet girl from That Darn Cat! and The Addams Family, and after the racy The Opposite of Sex and her showstopping full frontal flash in Prozac Nation, she was seen as edgy, dangerous, and very sexy, going on to bare in Black Snake Moan, Monster, and After.Life.
Forget Team Jacob and Team Edward. Skin Central is on the side of Team Naked Kristen. Firmly.
MrSkin.com celebrates its 10th Anniversary in 2009.
So let’s take a look back at the ingenudes who dared to bare for the first time in each year since we began fast-forwarding to the good parts.
Jessica Biel Nude in Powder Blue
Jessica Biel, stripper? Yes, in the upcoming drama Powder Blue. But unlike Jessica Alba in Sin City and Lindsay Lohan in I Know Who Killed Me, does Jessica Biel actually strip nude in Powder Blue? The naked truth: fuck, yes!
(1:08) Jessica Biel puffs a cigarette, struts on-stage at a strip club, dances with wild sexual abandon, rips off her top to expose her nude boobs, and then douses her naked nipples with wax from a lit candle.
(1:24) We get another look at nude Jessica Biel’s large breasts as she does a dude in bed, followed by a fantastic shot of her famous bubble butt. Jessica Biel’s naked tits and ass are the celebrity nudity debut of the decade.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences recently announced its nominees for Awards honoring 2008’s best work in every aspect of movie-making.
Aside from the fact that nine of the ten actresses who got a nod have done remarkable nude work on-camera, most noteworthy is dark horse contender Melissa Leo from the film Frozen River.
For now, though, let us honor a previous Melissa Leo triumph, the 1985 teen-hooker-in-Times-Square cult favorite, Streetwalkin’.
Melissa's lusciously upturned, rosily-pink-nippled boobaloos deserve an award of their own.
Golden Globes perhaps?
Streetwalk on over after the jump.
In super-babe Kate Winslet's new movie The Reader, she plays a guard in a Nazi concentration camp who has a relationship with a fifteen-year-old boy! The flick is full of the delicious Kate in various stage of nudity and when it comes to the theme of a grown woman bedding down with a teen boy, she's as openminded as can be!
From an interview with The Guardian:
I start to ask whether she was able to find any way to empathise with [her character, Hanna] Schmitz, given the character’s Nazi past, and the fact that her life includes this relationship with this young boy, which, I suggest, by modern standards, would be considered paedophilia on some level. She recoils. “I think you should be careful with that word.” She gives an unconvincing laugh.
“But do you know what I mean?” I say.
“No, actually, not with using that word, I don’t.”
Even given the fact that he’s 15?
“No, I don’t. Not to that extent, no, I have to say, I have to be very, very honest, you know, I think that it’s a very dangerous word to use - that applies to pre-pubescents. Let’s bear in mind that this boy turns 16 in the story, and that’s legal marriage age. And Hanna is led to believe he is 17. And the actor himself, David Kross, is 18, you know, he’s an adult.”
Now that's what we call a real cumming-of-age story.
Among its many repulsive and/or revolutionary revelations, the classic splatter blow-out Pieces (1982) proved (as its ads touted) that “you don’t have to go to Texas for a chainsaw massacre.”
Now the heroic exploitation-movie archeologists at Grindhouse Releasing bring that very same chainsaw massacre right to you via a new, gloriously realized two-disc special edition Pieces DVD.
Meanwhile, at a midnight showing quite possibly near you (with more on the way), Repo! The Genetic Opera (2007) is packing screwed-up teenage asses into theater seats like no cult sensation in recent memory (or mammaries).
Repo’s got blood, it’s got guts, it's got body-fluid thrill freaks looking for a kick, and it’s got a Gothily tarted-up Paris Hilton.

Code Red DVD does right by the once-lost '80s teen sex classic Hot Moves!
L.A.'s UltraStar Studio plays host to art-damaged Third Reich ravishers!
IronBabe's Jackie Stevens steps in and strips down for Misty Mundae -- electrifyingly elongated-nipples-first!
And Return to Sleepaway Camp may herald a renaissance of weird, haunting, unsanitary sexual amusements from a quarter-century ago coming back to bite us in (the front of) the pants.
