This paper looks at the period of late adolescence when sexuality is emerging and is being noticed by adolescents and others. The paper specifically investigates the difficulties of both adolescent girls and boys who are struggling with how to conduct themselves based on contemporary mindsets portrayed by the media and advertising. The paper then reveals that researches believe that consistent parental involvement in providing guidance, rules and structures for adolescents to function within the family are essential. In addition to parents and family, the paper contends that public health and law enforcement agencies have a responsibility to protect adolescents.

From the Paper:

"Ancient history has long been a marker for understanding gender roles in contemporary society. Greek and Roman societies which provides invaluable insight into ancient life, culture, and society also provides insight into gender roles and sexuality. Ancient patriarchal societies have been useful in understanding how the roles of women and men have evolved. However, some of the long-held perceptions arising out of studies of ancient life have recently been re-evaluated."
