    But yeah, this is pretty bad :/
    When they do finally find that special someone, it won`t be as special, coz they would have lost their virginity to someone they dont care about, and will never see again.

    It`s 18 here in the U.S. So anyway, almost everyone I know has had some sort of sexal relation. Even I had oral sex.

    Daisy, it varies from state to state in the U.S. from 16 to 18, for a long while there were a few states that were set at 14. Here is some more information about the Age of Consent in the United States.

    As an aside, I don`t see why people would be surprised about the casual attitude taken toward sex considering the proliferation of porn sites and ready access to what I would consider to be disagreeable material on the internet. Sex is sensationalized and our marketing media is saturated with it.

    For a very long time the moderating force in sexual activity was guilt induced by religion and the concept that it was a sinful act, but the fact is, kids are a product of their environment. If there is a problem, we are all the cause and parents blaming someone else for their children`s behavior is narcissistic and incompetent.

    This is sensationalism, or at least dabbles in it. Maybe because I`m from a medium sized town in southern Missouri with a decent community, but oral sex is still sex where I`m from. And you`re labeled a whore to be avoided when you pull this kind of poo.

    She`s never said a word to me. XD

    It`s a sad thing to see women have given up their power. The problem is, too many of these girls feel that they HAVE to do this stuff, because all the other girls are doing it. If they don`t they guy will just move along to the next girl who will. If these girls all said no, they would regain their control.

    Sucks for us guys, but women really do have the control.

    I never said "the only power".

    Women used to be in control when it came to sex. This is completely giving up their control and letting guys tell them what to do. With a very odd few, I can guarantee you that there aren`t many 12 or 13 year old girls out there, preforming oral sex on guys, because they really, really want to.

    everytime I read/hear something like this it make me feel like I`ve been living in a bubble......The "crazy sh*t" teens "do nowadays" was something I never noticed when I was in high school. Sure there were some girls who were skanks, but everyone knew it from a mile away. I didn`t know anybody who knew anybody who was "handing out sexual favours for money" or nobody I knew talked about or went to "sex parties"....there were parties, and it wasn`t uncommon if drunk people hooked up in a bedroom or a tent.......seeing an article like this makes me feel like right-wing, conservative parents are just trying to stir poo up and cause a scene. It`s freaking annoying

    First off, I kind of disagree with the `facts` represented in this article. I dunno what teens they talked to, but most of the ones I know/grew up with wouldn`t even consider half that stuff. In fact the people I knew in school that did anything like that were ostracized by pretty much everyone.

    With that being said, you can`t live in a society where it`s okay to talk about sex openly regardless of age and it`s okay to have raunchy porn in every corner of the internet and it`s okay to have soft core sex scenes on prime time television and be surprised/get pissed off or disgusted when kids take those messages and translate them as `sex isn`t a big deal, so it doesn`t really matter what I do or when`.

    This documentary sounds like a load of crap. Where were all these girls when I was in high school? Any girl I knew wouldn`t think that a blowjob was the equivalent to a kiss goodnight. Maybe I should`ve made different friends. XD But seriously, this is just sensationalism. Remember the 60s? 70s? I mean COME ON. What time were teenagers NOT doing the horizontal mombo?

    All in all, I blame those [email protected] Bratz dolls.

    This seems like it really is stretching the truth. I know there are some kids who have sex all the time and i do know a girl who got pregnant it the 7th grade but that is more rate then this makes out. My girlfriend and i have been together for over 6 months now and have never had sex or oral sex. I think this article just makes it seem bigger then it really is.

    I`m fairly recently out of high school, and there is a small amount of truth to this, but the overall point they are trying to make is pure sensationalism. I knew a few people who were having sex, but it wasn`t 50% of the girls in the school. The researcher is panicking and making large claims that just aren`t true.

    wow that is just very scary. me being in my 20`s i knew people that were like that in highschool and i just wonder how mature can you be if you are doing those kinds of things. being promiscuous or doing those sorts of things for gain shows that you have a low self esteem or crave the attention. you are better and hold out for as long as possible. you dont want to hurt your life and your potential so early. but at that stage in life most can only see an arms length into the future. its deeply saddening to know that kids throw away their youth so quickly to become adults and once they reach adulthood they spend all their time trying to regain their youth. all i can say is dont grow up too quickly because part of being an adult is responsibility, which kids only think of the autonomy of adulthood, they dont see the responsibility involved. ;-/

    I believe it, but not the "over 50%" statistic. I know lots of girls who have gone so far as to engage in oral sex and/or intercourse and I blame it on self esteem issues. Many of the girls I know who do it for the first time, do it because their boyfriends wanted to and the girl didn`t really know what to do in that type of situation. And when other girls are talking about it, you JUST want to fit in!

    I know I`m not a girl, but I have strong moral stands on oral sex and intercourse. I believed for the longest time you should wait until marriage (and I still do, to an extent) because that`s something that should be shared between you and the person you want to spend the rest of your life with. If you`re with a person for a long enough period of time and you do feel like you truly love them, then I don`t see a problem with it. But those girls said that you just have urges and it`s not that big of a deal to do it. I sometimes wonder what has happened to the youth of to

    Unfortunately, to most teens sex is nothing..
    I`m nineteen, and have only ever slept with my boyfriend, whom i`ve been with since i was fifteen, and loads of people that i know have been with a fair few people. To be honest, i feel sutpid saying this, but even thinking of having sex with anyone else makes me cringe, but i supose that`s because i`ve only ever been with my boyfriend...

    Oral sex! Sweet Jesus, Lawdy Lawdy! If it`s that commonplace, how come I can`t seem to get a bj? Also, I haven`t experienced or seen any of this apparently amazing amount of sexuality in high school. It`s pretty damn normal and conservative from what I`ve seen, and I go to a rich high school with 3000 kids. Manipulating parents with shocking and probably very skewed statistics like this is just unnacceptable, and will probably lead to a lot of tensions and bad relationships between parents and their overly-sheltered and restricted children.

    Also, all of the girls that I know that have engaged in oral sex, and there are quite a few, have only done it in relationships with guys that they really liked, and it was their idea because girls can be even hornier than males. I just don`t see what the big deal is if they are in relationships and doing something that they can`t get pregnant in. I mean, there are always STD`s but if you`re in a proper relationship, these things are shared.

    Well, you know what they say, "95 percent of statistics can be made to say exactly what you want them to" Maybe more than 50 percent of the kids that THEY talked to had oral sex, and maybe they just went around asking the sluttiest girls they could find.

    So long as it`s safe sex, I have no objections to teen sex.

    As for prostitution... well it has been with us from the beginning, and will likely be here long into the future, whether legal or not... They should just have a prostitution tax, and be done with it.

    Sex is only a big deal because it was forbidden by the church for such a long time. Sex was no big deal to the Romans and the Greeks, those fabled people who our society so looks up to. I really don`t see any problems with this. I have no right to judge what people do with their own bodies, just be safe as it is in all of our best interests that we minimize the spread of STD`s and pregancies.

    this is a bit disturbing, but its not too surprizing.

    i think that statistic is "out of date". probably 90% of girls age 19 have had oral, and about 60% at 16 andabout 20% at 14.

    teens are just curious. plain and simple.

    The current generation of teens/young adults is the worst one yet...nowhere near as honorable and dignified as those who fought during WWII. Ideally, 40s/50s morals should make a comeback (minus gender/race inequality). But that will never happen.

    I honestly don`t want to know what the next generation will be like.

    I think it depends on the girls you talked to. When I was a teenager there was like 4 whorey girls who would sleep with guys and one nasty boy who talked about getting blow jobs. The rest of us avoided them because we thought they were gross. You don`t really get popularity points for bragging about giving up your virginity in a draining pipe in the woods behind your house at the age of 12.

    Most teens I know are at least marginally sexually active. This doesn`t make them whores or filled with STDs. I`m gonna say 9 out of 10 of them are using birth control and condoms and are monogamous. This documentary took a very isolated part of society and made it seem like every person is screwing a couple different guys a night. In reality, that is a minority. Yes, my peers (including myself) experiment with sex, and maybe have it regularly, but we are educated about it and we are taking measures to be safe. It is no big deal.

    Wow... this is news to me, and I`m still in High School. Where are all of these parties I`m missing out on!? Or maybe these are part of the 89% of statistics that are made up on the spot. lol

    I read, "Oral sex is the new goodnight-kiss" and I was like, "Oh, that`s so exaggerated..." Then I thought about it... I realized I`ve had more of the former than the latter.

    "i would say about 15% of my grade is sexually active"

    That`s probably true for me too, but I`m in eighth grade. I`m not sure I know anyone who`d go as far as prostitution at our age, though. The way the present this is that ALL teens are whoring themselves out and that`s not true in the slighest.
