Religion rules become a norm that is upheld and fought for. This article explained how the generation of teenagers in Surabaya who have the same background at Islamic Universities. They used to apply virtual spaces related to sexual activities. Apart from that, this paper also tried to relate their practice to the religious teachings they profess. The informants of this study were students at several universities in Surabaya.

This research aimed to explain the practices of resistance and negotiation that occur on religious teachings.

In those various activities, men were more open in telling about their activities than women because of strong patriarchal tradition. Besides, they also tried to negotiate the concept of sin in religion. They considered the consequences of sin when they do sexual virtually were heavier than when they did it.</em></p> Radius Setiyawan Sri Lestari Arin Setiyowati Copyright (c) 2022 2022-04-29 2022-04-29 6 1 104 120 10.26740/jsm.v6n1.p104-120 Religion: Functional and Dysfunctional, From Daily Life To Become Media Coverage <p><em>Religion cannot separate human life. In the history of civilization, religion grows from animism to monotheism. Religion has several functions, first it and legitimation for limitation of human capability. For this function, man needs the “Others” to solve their problem and explain why their problem occurs. The second, religion has a social identity function. The purpose of this research is to find out and ensure that religion is a symbol of social solidarity. This study uses the literacy method, which is the source of library data for books and journal articles. The last on Marxist view religion is an illusion, legitimation of bourgeois exploitation, but in the otherwise, religion has a social critic function and a theology of liberation.</em></p> Warsono Warsono Muhtadi Alabyadh Copyright (c) 2022 2022-04-30 2022-04-30 6 1 257 271 10.26740/jsm.v6n1.p257-271 Sexual Self-Disclosure: A Study on Communication Behaviors among Users in Online Dating Applications <p><em>The development of digital technology has changed the way people communicate. The existence of online media is no longer a medium of information but also has become a space for human interpersonal relationships. One of the phenomena is the shifted pattern of a group of people looking for a life partner virtually through dating applications. This emerging trend of online dating applications in the vast digital world has been contradicted with the values of the Eastern community including Indonesia.

The study aims at understanding the process of communication of sexual self-exposure by the users in the online dating application. Additionally, this study examines how sexual behaviors as the implication of online interactions. There are some dynamics employed in sexual self-disclosure in the process of online communication, factors that influence the way to communicate in the online dating apps, including occupation, recent events, and sexual experiences</em></p> Puspita Sari Sukardani Anam Miftakhul Huda Farid Pribadi Sueb Sueb Anggaunitakiranantika Anggaunitakiranantika Copyright (c) 2022 2022-04-29 2022-04-29 6 1 84 103 10.26740/jsm.v6n1.p84-103 Empty, Dry, and Infertile Forests: Women's Perceptions of Deforestation in Meru Betiri National Park <p><em>Illegal logging has damaged the ecosystem of Meru Betiri National Park (henceforth defined as TNBM), as indicated by the loss of water sources and the destruction of the forest. As citizens around the forest, hardly can women do anything to address the problem, except see the ongoing forest destruction. This study scrutinizes women's perceptions of deforestation in Meru Betiri National Park. Women have limited access to TNMB management, making women the most disadvantaged due to forest destruction. This research aims to investigate women’s perceptions of deforestation in the national park through a phenomenological approach. Documentation and interviews were involved in data collection. The collected data were analyzed and interpreted descriptively. This study found that pessimism and powerlessness colored women's perception of the forest. Empty and infertile, without water sources and animals represent ironic women's subjective perception. The dominant patriarchal structure, corrupt forest management, and the view of illegal logging as a way of survival have reflected women's perceptions of TNMB deforestation.</em></p> Raudlatul Jannah Baiq Lily Handayani Ampumuza Junior Copyright (c) 2022 2022-04-29 2022-04-29 6 1 121 138 10.26740/jsm.v6n1.p121-138 Parent-Child Communication in Understanding Learning Messages Through Online Media in the Pandemic Era <p><em>Communication has a big role in maintaining relationships between families, especially the relationship between parents and children, by having a good way of communication, it can have the same mindset in achieving a goal.

The research method uses descriptive qualitative, and the data are obtained by observation and close interviews. Research subjects are poor parents and students in 4-6 grade. The technique of data sources retrival uses purposive sampling. The results of this study prove that good communication between parents and children is very much needed, especially when parents accompany children to learn through online media during a pandemic. To understand learning messages through online media, parents really have to pay attention to communication patterns with children, besides supporting factors such as the willingness of qualified learning facilities and parents who are able to understand learning messages well are children’s needs. Those things will help the child to understand the learning message. However, various factors often become obstacles, including parents’ economic background who are not able to provide maximum learning facilities and background factors which are the education of parents itself who cannot understand children's learning messages well. However, parents will do their best for their children to understand the message of online learning maximally</em></p> Juariyah Juariyah Yunita Putri Tyanta Copyright (c) 2022 2021-04-29 2021-04-29 6 1 39 61 10.26740/jsm.v6n1.p39-61
