"Table 3 shows that 36 percent of 15–17-year-old males had had vaginal intercourse with a female; 28 percent had given oral sex to a female, and 40 percent had received it; 8.1 percent had had anal sex with a female, and 46 percent of 15–17-year-old males had had no sexual contact with another person.
Among males 18–19 years of age, 66 percent had had vaginal intercourse with a female, while 52 percent had given oral sex to a female, 66 percent had received it, and 15 percent had had anal sex with a female. About 22 percent of 18–19-year-old males had not had sexual contact with another person.
Table 4 contains statistics on the proportions of females 15–24 years of age with these same types of sexual contact. Among 15–17-year-old females, 39 percent had had vaginal intercourse at least once, 30 percent had given oral sex to a male, and 38 percent had received it from a male. Nearly one-half (49 percent) of 15–17-year-old females had not had any sexual contact with another person. At ages 18–21, the proportions of females who had had vaginal intercourse were about the same as the proportions who had had oral sex. At age 18–19, 17 percent of females had not had any sexual contact with another person, compared with about 22 percent of 18–19-year-old males."
I noted Yesterday a question as to the statistics provided, only relating to 15-19 year old's, and how accurate they were if they were only with 19 year old's or 18 year old's. I did a quick medical fact check, and found some old statistics from 2005. As it is claimed that the statistics continue to remain relatively constant, I thought it adequate to show these CDC statistics. From what I have read, Americans seem much less immoral that I had thought. We all watch the television, and think: THAT NATION, but it does not seem as bad as I had believed.
