Premarital Sex: Almost Everyone's Doing It
Study Shows More Than 90 Percent Of Americans Have Had Premarital Sex, Even Older Generations


(AP) More than nine out of 10 Americans, men and women alike, have had premarital sex, according to a new study. The high rates extend even to women born in the 1940s, challenging perceptions that people were more chaste in the past.

"This is reality-check research," said the study's author, Lawrence Finer. "Premarital sex is normal behavior for the vast majority of Americans, and has been for decades."

Finer is a research director at the Guttmacher Institute, a private New York-based think tank that studies sexual and reproductive issues and which disagrees with government-funded programs that rely primarily on abstinence-only teachings. The study, released Tuesday, appears in the new issue of Public Health Reports.

Ya, but abstinence is way better. That's why we should put all federal sex-ed money into abstinence only programs. The facts show this is the only way to prevent STDs.











(Um, yes that was sarcastic)

Yep, as everyone knows people have sex. Those with a fundamentalist opposition argue on their own somewhat illogical points of view but ultimately they're disregarding the biological imperative. No matter how much they howl, preach, and rant, it will happen. It is a healthy and natural thing, and their attempts to hamper the natural course of human behavior always seem to lead to things getting a lot worse where they succeed.
