Study Says Less Teens Having Sex, and Using Drugs

Generation Jump Off?

Contrary to popular belief, a study released by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention says teens are having less sex and doing less drugs than their counterparts who were cutting up in the 90’s. Research also says that teens these days are prone to wear condoms more than those in the 90’s and strap on seat belts.

About 48 percent of high school students were no longer virgins in 2007, down from 54 percent in 1991. Meanwhile, just 15 percent said they’d had four or more sexual partners, down from 19 percent in 1991.

And 62 percent of sexually active students said they’d used a condom the last time they had sex, up from 46 percent in 1991.


The study breaks down demographically and while “Blacks” and “Whites” seem to be fairing better than their counterparts in the 90’s, Hispanic children are getting the short end of the stick (no pun intended) according to the survey.

“Hispanic students were more likely than either black students or white students to attempt suicide, use cocaine, heroin or ecstasy, ride with a driver who had been drinking alcohol, or go 24 hours or more without eating in an effort to lose weight,” Wechsler said in a conference call with reporters.
