Condoms & teenage sex scandals
Teenage sex scandals in 1950s New Zealand highlighted the concern about American pop culture corrupting morals. The police reported 'orgies perpetrated in private homes … and in several second-rate Hutt Valley theatres'.
People criticised 'cheap and nasty' Hollywood movies that glamorised teen rebellion. As a result, films like Rebel Without a Cause were banned, as was the sale of condoms to anyone under 16.
