Study Probes Urban Teens' Sex Habits

A revealing report on the sexual habits of low-income black urban youth is being released Wednesday. Researchers went directly to the source, conducting thousands of interviews with young people from New York to Los Angeles, focusing on how the "hip-hop generation" is responding to sexual content in the media. NPR's Tavis Smiley talks to an investigator on the study and a teen pregnancy activist.
