“My first time” – the ways of breaking the taboo in youth magazines


The article concerns the issues connected with the sexual taboo sphere in youth magazines. Material from such magazines as “Bravo,” “Dziewczyna,” or “Popcorn” was analysed. Their editorial staffs apply various means enabling the discussion about sex. As the most popular ones we could name euphemistic synonyms, ellipses, pronouns, circumlocutions, metaphores, metonymies, and the use of scientific terminology. Furthermore, verbal messages are complemented by visuals.
