Virginity’s Making A Comeback in the U.S., Report Says

40 Year-Old VirginDiane Mapes reports on MSNBC about a recent Centers for Disease Control report (PDF):

Researchers found that between 2006 and 2008, the percentage of 15- to 24-year-old men who had never had any form of sexual contact with another person was 27 percent (up from 22 percent in 2002) while the percentage of 15- to 24-year-old females who had never had any sex whatsoever was 29 percent (up 7 percent points from 22 percent in 2002).

Anjani Chandra, a health scientist at the NCHS and lead author of the study, says 15- to 19-year-olds made up the lion’s share of this category, a finding that seems to counter other reports regarding teen sex trends.

“I think a lot of people misconstrue this as meaning they’ve never had vaginal sex,” she says. “But this is no sexual contact of any kind. They didn’t have oral sex or anal sex. They didn’t have anything.”

  6. From one extreme to the other, possibly? Maybe teenagers now know lying about sexual activities hasn’t helped them progress in life. This could be a game-changer… then again, maybe not.

  8. Have you seen these kids? Go walk thru a college campus today…a goodly portion of that percent are unf&ckable to begin with…unless you’re a chubby chaser who doesn’t mind sticking it in a person devoid of redeeming personality traits.Then there’s the herds of kids who have ingested so many toxins that their gender/sex drive is ambiguous at best…when it functions at all. Even being picky…the 90s were a buffet of sexy people having fun with other sexy people…with ‘sexy’ being a fairly broad term allowing for a wide range of personal tastes. I wouldn’t f*ck most of this new generation with someone else’s dick.

      Awesome–George Carlin reference? One of my favorite lines of his was “I wouldn’t f*ck her with a stolen dick.”

      Personality? What’s that a video game? An iphone app? (I’m being sarcastic, wait what’s that a facebook game;)

    • Wow, you sound really jaded that you can’t fuck any women under 40, so instead of just dealing with it in a healthy way, you put down an entire generation.
