There's a problem with only taking polls in rural Idaho.

I actually don't believe this data. To begin with, it is so problematic using self-reported data to determine youth behavioural trends. Secondly, the difference is too wide. Thirdly, a TRULY well respected youth sex survey would have particulars on condom usage, knowing that most youth who claim to be using condoms during sex are using them incorrectly.

Teens have stopped counting oral sex as "sex". Now, it's just "a favor".

So does this show that a combination of sex-education and abstinence works? Teach abstinence, sure, but for god's sake teach about diseases, contraception and the like for those who will have sex.

Give tax dollars to teach both, Mr. President. And then we will agree on something.

Frick. This is bad news.

Sigh. I am so glad that I was a teen in the 70's and that I got married in the early 80's. You young fools have so much more to worry about today.

Of course, I did have to endure disco, so it wasn't all good.

Excuse me, I now have to go outside and yell at some damn kids on my lawn...

If they're postponing sex, then what the hell are they using the condoms for?

Gosh, Wally! Kids are having less sex?

I used to have a buddy who claimed he would wank it with a condom on...i always thought it was taking safe sex a little too far.

46 percent were sexually active in 2002 compared with 55 percent in 1995

In other news, 9 more percent of the people surveyed lied in 2002.

I want the world to be a better place for our children, but not for our children's children, because I don't believe children should be having sex.

Yes. I'm postponing sex.

...

Okay, it's been postponed for long enough!

In other news, blow jobs and gay sex not considered "intercourse." Oddly enough, blow jobs and gay sex up 9%...
 
2004-12-11 01:37:35 PM
Actually, wanking with a condom on is not a bad idea. Not only is it a lot cleaner, but you're less likely to desensitize yourself.

Male sexual activity goes down while video game popularity goes up. Coincidence?
 
2004-12-11 01:48:07 PM
I actually believe it, judging on what's going on in my school. And control, being naked on a webcam != having sex, so you should still have plenty of them. I don't think it's a matter of morals for people nowadays, it's a matter of not really wanting to do it every night of the week. Things get chafed.

These polls are totally retarded. Everyone knows teens aren't going to be completely honest on them cause they don't trust the establishment. They aren't stupid. They know that shiat goes down when you don't lie to cover your ass and its probably a good idea to make everyone think you aren't doing drugs or farking.

"The news is almost all positive," said Bill Albert, spokesman for the National Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy. "This data clearly underscores teens are being a bit more cautious about sex. This is a real sea change."

The data comes amid a ferocious debate over the value of abstinence-only education, an approach President Bush has backed with $170 million in federal funding next year. Both supporters and detractors of abstinence-until-marriage programs claimed the report validated their sharply differing views. More neutral academics said the positive trends likely reflected a combination of abstinence education and instruction on safer sex.


It is interesting how some people are skeptical about studies showing higher sexual morality, but perfectly content with studies showing lower sexual morality.

When I was in school (the 80s) kids lied and made it sound like they were more rebellious than they really were. The surveys were anonymous, and it was kinda fun to say you tried things you never tried.

Postponing sex? Just until the parents go to sleep, right?

Must have something to do with it becoming easier and easier to get free porn online...

So by the logic presentd, we can assume that the exit polling done during the election was false. That in fact the Republicans were right in saying the polls were used with biased samples. FIne with me. I mean, really just discrediting the source is the easiest way to make what you don't want to hear. It's the fark way.

I'm a juvenile probation officer. A month ago a kid I work with told me his girlfriend was pregnant. He said they used condoms, but when I got down to the nitty gritty of it, he was using them wrong (taking it off while inside her, leading to spillage)He also wasn't pinching the resevoir tip, and had had breakage issues in the past, probably because of this. He said no one ever told him how to use one.

But let's teach abstinance only programs. Kids won't have sex. It's just the TV they watch (europe shows basically porn on television) or the internet (teen pregnancy is actually in decline since the internet became widely used) and our current immoral society (Romeo and Juliet were 13, teen pregnancy rates were far higher in the 50's, studies have shown that the bride was pregnant in more than half of puritain marriages if you do the 'Marriage date/baby birthdate math).

Sigh...

Is that what the kids are calling it now?

Oops, I exagerate, Puritians were only pregnant 10% of the time, I looked it up. I forgot about the abortifacants like Pennyroyal tea.

Ding ding ding! We have a winah!!!

Seriously, not that many females are able to orgasm during vaginal sex until their mid to late 20's. Add to the fact you've got a stupid slack jawed 16 year old pizza faced dumbass trying to operate the controls of the airplane cockpit of sexual anatomy, and girls should just do the masturbation thing until college, where they can sleep w/ the sexual pathology professors who know how to rock off socks.
