Contribution: maybe. But no biochemichal/neurological agents have
effects that can be compared with social/socio-cultural issues. If you
want to find out what kid will grow up to become a violent criminal or
develop other self-destructive lifestyles you have zero chance if you
only know if the kid lives in the center of a modern western metropolis
or in a little village.
You can whatsoever say with a very good certainty if the kid will go
astray, if you know the income of its parents.
A few years ago some 3 kids from a small village here in Germany decided
to torture one of their school-mates to death. They had constructed a
crude racist "reason" to pick the poor fellow because they never learned
to accept differnce among people.
These kids were never exposed to the stress-factors you mention here.
They lived a life in an idyllic village -- but their parents were
low-income workers or unemployed.

1.) I do not see anything wrong with art that celebrates sexuality. If
it is art indeed, I mean. That is: if sex is only the spice to promote
the sales of a product, the whole thing is corrupt. But if we talk about
free arts here, sex is perfectly OK.
2.) Art is never violent, it can describe or symbolize violence and if
this is done right, I do not see a problem here either.
Good art can have an aspect of catharsis - if a person feels like
listening to music that expresses extreme feelings, hate, destruction,
malevolence. Then the reason is never the mere availability of such
works of art but always stress that comes from the real world.
Things like: "If you fail in school you gonna end up being an unemployed
or: "If you want to be in the team, stop talking about communist
nonsense like payment for overtime and show us your happy face."
make people agressive, desperate, violent. Not music of any kind.
Some of those, who are stressed like this find relief and catharsis in
Death Metal or Industrial Electronics or Punkrock. This supports
self-respect and may even lead to a development of the personality that
can cope with such real-world problems in a adeaqaute way.
