Long story short:
-New technology is invented
-The media asks "Will teens use this for sex?" provided they feel it is a reasonable question.
-If they thought it was relevant enough to ask the question, the answer is surely yes.
To be fair: if they didn't think it relevant enough to ask the question, the answer is usually still yes...
I know young people (until their 30s I think) are more into odd experimental sex than older people (over 60), but it's not that big a difference, and I think the difference between teens and people in their 20s is probably negligible (younger teens probably get enough new stuff from what society considers normal). It's a rather odd obsession the media have with this topic, do people like to fantasise about what the teens in their environment do when they are alone?
It does seem that this obsession with sex is much greater in the US than here. I rarely hear people ask about teens using a technology for sex (except for cameras and communication technology, but it's generally nothing new and tends to be based on actual incidents where people stumble upon the practice). Somehow the conclusion tends to be: there is really nothing we can do to fix it (drastic measures like returning to the dark ages are generally not considered).
