Teens who play video games and watch porn...

fail to actually have sex or commit violent acts. I just added a link to Tech Central Station on the newly organized blogroll, as it is one of the most consistently fascinating reads on the net, and then Glenn Reynolds comes along with this article to prove my point.

It reminds me of an old Onion article (which I can't link to, as they have uncooly started charging for back issues) which stated:

Pictures of naked women fail to attract real naked women to college dorm room.

When you phrase it like that, I think the causal connection between viewing porn and not having sex becomes more obvious.  Glenn has his own theory, (which relates back to one of Danny's favorite topics):

(Or maybe it's a different one -- research indicates that teenagers, though safer and healthier, are also fatter -- so perhaps the other improvements are the result of teens sitting around looking at porn and videogames until they're too out-of-shape and unattractive for the real thing…)

Read the whole thing.
