Many teenagers and young adults fail to use condoms consistently,
regardless of whether they have sex with a serious or a "casual" partner, a new
Researchers found that among more than 1,300 15- to 21-year-olds, those
with casual sex partners had unprotected sex just as often as those in serious
relationships -- about 20 times over the previous three months, on
Those who had casual sex were more likely to use condoms at least some of
the time, the study found. But because they had sex more often, they ended up
having unprotected intercourse just as frequently as their peers in steady
The findings point up two different problems, according to the researchers.
"Unfortunately, this reveals that teens may overestimate the safety of using
condoms most of the time with a casual partner and underestimate the risk of
unprotected sex with a serious partner," lead study author Dr. Celia Lescano
said in a statement.
In a direct attack against conservatives, religion, abstinence education and basic common sense, liberals have waged a relentless war against teaching kids the simple fact that if you don’t have sex, you don’t get pregnant or get STDs. This despite the fact that we haven’t had anything close to the rates of single mothers, teenage pregnancies or STD infections before sex-ed was taught in schools. Because as far as liberals are concerned teenagers are going to have sex anyway, so just throw a condom at 'em and everything will be fine. Yet, for centuries, telling people to reserve sex for marriage worked. If they want proof, look back 100 years. Abstinence works every time it’s tried, too bad for today's teenagers (esp. those outside of red states) this bit of knowledge is being sacrificed for capital to fund Leftist propaganda and immorality.
