Over Half of Jr. High Students Saw Porn Before Age of 13|過半國中生表示 13歲前首次接觸情色媒體

A record 5.7 percent of junior high school students have had sex, according to an official survey. Among them, almost 40 percent don't use birth control, which is also a 10-year high.


According to a recent Health Promotion Administration survey of 13- to 15-year-olds, 40 percent of junior high school students have seen pornographic materials and over half were 13 or younger the first time they saw porn.

Youths come across a lot of information, so on this front we hope youths can pay more attention when using relevant media.

The survey showed the percentage of sexually active junior high school students has risen from 2 percent to 5.7 percent in the last 10 years, with a record 6.2 percent of female junior high school students having had sex. In addition, close to 40 percent of sexually active junior high school students do not use birth control. This was a 10-year high.

Doctors say the consequences of premature sexual activity include unwed pregnancies and a higher risk of sexually transmitted diseases, infertility and cervical cancer in girls.

Young girls at this stage are at higher risk for negative reproductive effects down the line because their fallopian tubes and vaginas are not yet mature. Their reproductive organs are at their most fragile right now, and this increases the risk of bacterial infection and damage.

Doctors say parents should spend more time with their children, keep a close eye on their social relationships, and discuss sex openly with them. The HPA says it will work with the Ministry of Education to implement sex education classes at schools, and school nurses can also provide information and answer questions.
 
 
 
青少年發生性行為比率越來越高,而且和網路色情資訊氾濫有關。國健署最新調查13到15歲青少年健康行為,結果發現,10個國中生至少有4個接觸過色情媒體,其中過半數首次接觸色情媒體的年齡,落在10到13歲。
 
國健署簡任技正陳麗娟表示,「青少年他接觸的一些訊息也比較多,所以在這個部分我們是希望青少年還是要在使用一些相關的媒體的部分,還是要特別注意。」
 
國健署表示,近十年來,國中生發生性行為比率,從2%、一路攀升到5.7%,其中女生有6.2%曾有過性行為,比率創新高。更令人擔心的是,國中生不論男女,有近四成性行為沒有避孕,也創十年新高紀錄。
 
醫師警告,太早發生性行為,除了容易未婚懷孕,青少女的生殖系統尚未發育成熟,也會增加日後罹患性病、不孕症、及子宮頸癌的機會。
 
康寧醫院教學副院長尹長生表示,「青少女在這個時候,很容易得到將來生育方面負面的作用。因為她的輸卵管跟她的陰道本身發育都不是很成熟,這個時候是最脆弱,有細菌進去的話,就很可能就會把它破壞掉。」
 
醫師建議父母,多花時間陪伴孩子,留意孩子的交友狀況,不要羞於談論性教育和性知識;而國健署則強調,會和教育部配合,在校園加強性教育課程,校護也可提供正確性觀念及性教育問題諮詢。
