    Ya think? Bad news sells, good news rarely does:

    The only problem with this is: what is sex?

    Do they include oral sex as part of their statistics?

    If not, then I would say that they do not have "intercourse" b/c they can get each other off with just oral, something not abundantly done before. Oral is seen as OK. So I think these figures are skewed.

    Side note: I know a friend, who knows a friend, who knows my cousin's brother's sister's, nephew, that this oral vs. sex thing is very real and works even on virgins.

    Yep, but also 'self-reporting.' I really don't know which way high schoolers would go, "No I don't give/receive bj's" or "Of course..."

    ive seen both. There are the ones that go and have sex and oral-sex with multiple partners condoms optional (fucking morons same that smoke cigarettes i guess). My Girlfriends niece is 17 and speaks of parties that her friends goto where they play that 50 cent song and randomly go suck a guys dick.

    Luckily she seems to be the ones this article mentions as she steers clear of the whole thing. She's still a virgin and shows general disgust towards the whole "sex" thing. Kinda like "well im going against the crowd by being a virgin so that make sme cooler."

    So basically some kids have their heads screwed on but the ones that dont REALLY dont.

    I think you are right, from what I've seen from my kids and students, the vast majority are really more straight and great kids. The few that are messed up, well I don't remember younger kids SO messed up.
