With all of the problems found in the adolescent sexuality of the inner city African American community, problems are just as common in more rural, more seemingly innocent, cultures such as that of the Amish. The paper shows that the simpler throwback Amish culture is one whose sexuality can be just as male-centric and just as harmful to its adolescents as that found in the big bustling looming city. This paper discusses the varied sexualities thrust upon youth in both the African American urban culture and the United States' small but noteworthy Amish culture, comparing and contrasting the two societies' beliefs.
From the Paper:"It's a concern for many, for researchers, city leaders, conservative and liberal politicians, community members, and distanced bigots: the rise in sexual promiscuity in the African American community. What is sometimes almost jokingly referred to within the black community as "babies having babies" is not a comical matter when the multitudes of unwanted or uncared-for children are counted, when the list of sexually transmitted diseases and complications is read, when the adverse and overarching effects of lost innocence and premature sexuality are admitted. Yet, with all of the problems found in the adolescent sexuality of the inner city African American community, problems are just as common in more rural, more seemingly "innocent" cultures, such as that of the Amish."
