That is the world this Thursday. Supertext captions by Red Bee Media - Red Bee Media -

Teen movies are about sex.

Adult movies can be about anything

but teen movies are about
the teenage experience

and that's basically sex.

And that's where you first learn
about sexuality.

Of course teenagers, ever younger
these days, are having sex

so we can't pretend
like they're not.

I think adolescent sexuality
is a taboo

because parents don't want
their kids to have sex

and parents know that kids
are going to see teen movies

and it's just our puritan background

Teenage movies are a perfect fulcrum
because while you're a teenager,

it's a sort of notion of maybe
what you are supposed to be doing.

When you're older,

it's a way to think
"Remember when that happened to me"

or "I wish that had happened to me"
or "thank goodness it didn't".

we don't live in a culture

that teaches our youth about sex.

I didn't learn anything
from sex education in the schools.

I do think movies can help.

We learn everything about sex,
romance, love, you know...

Those of us who are brought up
on movies the way Americans are

probably can't have
a first love affair

without doing it through some movie.

What do boys want to see?
Lots of naked girls.

That's... you know, that's been true
since the beginning of time.

The female form, naked,
I would guess.

Most girls want to see romance
and, I think, making out.

I can't speak for all boys

you know, because there are
heterosexual boys

and there are homosexual boys.

I was looking for bare-chested men
with six-packs.

I used to go to the 'TV Guide' and
look in the back at sexy teen movies

and see if it said
nudity or partial nudity.

Usually nudity means
you see a pair of tits.

I always wanted to see
the body parts.

Mostly you want to see their...
reaction to being stimulated.

A lot of times when I was growing up
if a sex scene would come on film,

I'd usually leave the room.

I would find some excuse to go.

I'd brush my teeth or I just
would get really uncomfortable.

I still can't watch sex scenes with
my family. It's too weird.

NEWSREEL: The early teens are years
of upheaval and turmoil.

They're years of physical
and glandular change.

All of them feel some stirrings
of interest in sex,

either openly or secretly.

Let's watch some of these youngsters.

We'll see what some
of the common troubles are.

We see a lot of curiosity about
teenagers emerging after WWII.

Teenage population is growing bigger
and bigger in the wake of the war

with the baby boom.

And by the 50s, teenagers are
listening to rock 'n' roll music,

wearing jeans to school,

things that were really considered
quite radical for the time.

But teenage sexuality isn't making
its presence felt very much

on screen just yet.

They were just showing
lots of kissing

and just letting you read between
the lines or imagining

and everyone got married in the end
and you're left to believe

"Oh, now they get to have sex
because they got married!"

We don't see more explicit
teen sexuality until the 60s.

You're nuts about me, aren't you?


'Splendor In The Grass' in 1961,
that was a big deal.

And I would do anything
you'd ask me to.

I would!

I would.

In fact, that movie
got people all, like, whoa,

because it's about
teenagers having sex.

Oh, Bud!

It's right before the sexual
revolution of the 1960s.

The central conflict of the movie is
Warren Beatty wants to get laid

and it drives him
and Natalie Wood insane!
