How can this be obvious. It certainly wasn't the case when I was a teen.

Or maybe I was just in the placebo group.

How about just risky behavior? Teens are dumb, their actions reflect that.
 
2012-09-17 08:48:21 AM
People like to have sex.
 
2012-09-17 08:48:33 AM
Did they name names?
 
2012-09-17 08:54:05 AM
Obviously the only way to combat this is to teach them to not have sex until after they are married and deny teenagers access to birth control. Also, it's different when politicians and priests do it because, duh!

Um,,,,not just teenagers. Us old farts still fark sometimes. (A lot of sometimes and someones)

Submittard: The article says teens who do sexting engage in riskier sexual behaviors.

His research found that girls in particular who'd sent naked photos were more likely to engage in risky sex, to have had multiple recent sex partners or to use alcohol and drugs before sex.

Reminds me of an Onion article that was basically: "Rise in teen sexual activity comes as a surprise to area teen."

I have just googled teen sexting research, the people around me at work seem to be just as upset over this new trend as I myself am....

I'm not even that far removed from the kids (I'm 26 and look 16) but the trend seems to be pretty wacky by all accounts. My friends little brother who just started college was telling me how several girls would charge a few dollars to text nudie pictures to the boys in school.

But then I remember when I was in school, stuff wasn't all that much different. One girl who liked me was on Backseat Bangers HER SENIOR YEAR. Let that sink in after the giggity has gone away.

No problem, but I'd suggest you hold off on the sexting til you figure the new phone out...

but, i thought high school existed for drugs, alcohol and sex. get it out of your system, go to college and become a person. (too many people wait to college to get it out of their system, and end up losing a lot of money and hurting their chances of getting a degree).

Not enough teen are engaging in risky behavior with Splat. Not nearly enough.
 
2012-09-17 10:58:12 AM
Does that mean banging a fat chick without a spotter? I almost lost my life that way once in college. Scary stuff. I should have known better than to let her be on top, but I was young and foolish...

I thought that was what college was for. At least the sex part.

Link? Or (stage)name? For research purposes obviously.

In high school, it wasn't sexts for me. I didn't have one of those fancy phones with the color screen. I would use emails or IM for all the naughty pics. I'll be honest, I kept it wrapped up during my teens and made sure to keep my pc up to date with the latest virus definitions.

Is the only qualifier for risky sex, in this article, supposed to be unprotected sex? If so, it does say that 2/3rds of them wrapped it up last time they did it. So at least a majority of them are practicing safe sex. Or is it the fact that they're having sex that makes it risky?

You sir are a gentleman. If you find or can think of anymore classmates that went on to pursue these careers, feel free to share.

I will study when I'm not at work.

"The invention of the teenager was a mistake. Once you identify a period of life in which people get to stay out late but don't have to pay taxes - naturally, no one wants to live any other way."

Risky behavior?

You mean like sticking your dick in a blender risky?
No that is just stupid.
But if you wrap a towel in the blades letting the towel flop around as you try it out. That is risky.

Sadly my teen years were filled with Playboy centerfolds stolen from my brother, who got the issues from his best friend, who stole them from his dad.

Also not a big menu at my high school so success had to wait until college.

Seeing some of the teens these days I'm surprised they don't just do it in the parking lot before school. I could get into that wake up call!
