    Not surprising as about thirty percent of boys are now just as happy kissing the boy next door.

    Who has time for sex when they're on Facebook or Twitter?

    Which makes it all the more important to teach safe sex.

    - " found 42% of girls and 44% of boys between 15 and 19 years old had experienced vaginal intercourse."

    And that is why it looks lower, because they are only counting that as sex.
    They have switched to doing it in the other holes to avoid getting pregnant.

    Either way, less pregnancies is a good thing. It means that sex education is at least slowly working, unlike 'don't do it or god will be angry', which never works.

    Teens choosing to wait longer before having sex in a society where religion is dying... hmm... interesting.

    Good news, although the illegitimacy rate in parts of the black community is still 70%.

    And most of that is in the teen age group. This is why comprehensive sex education is important. This is also why Planned Parenthood tries to put their clinics in the neighborhoods that regular clinics don't go into.

    Yep. Looks like the Bible Belt could use some planned parenthood.

    Teen pregnancy rate per 1000 by state.
