Gosh darnit, those crazy kids have gone and surprised us again. The latest survey shows a significant decline in teen sexual activity.
“The latest round of the quaintly named National Survey of Family Growth found that among 15-to-24-year-olds, 29 percent of females and 27 percent of males reported no sexual contact with another person ever – up from the 22 percent of both sexes when the survey was last conducted in 2002.”
Wow. That seems like kind of a high number. To me. There are lots of other fun facts from the survey, too. I’ll get to them another time. Oh, I should mention a couple of things here. First off, this is all based on self-reported data. So we have to trust that these teens and young adults were all telling the truth, and not telling fibs. Because why would they lie? FYI, I think the numbers are not entirely accurate. For example did the women include experiences of rape? Because 1 in 4 women in college today has been the victim of rape. Just saying…
As I looked at the data, I started to wonder… what about my readers? Were you guys early starters or late bloomers?
No, I don’t think my data will mirror that survey. I’m guessing you guys are more adventurous than the national average. And also, just as likely to fib.
So here we go:
