ABSTRACT
This article updates on sex related data, collected from several sex related research. Research has consistently demonstrated that half or more of high school students become sexually active, including intercourse, before they graduate. Although rates of condom use among sexually active teens have gradually increased over time, condom use in this population is often inconsistent and far from universal. In the United States, school-based efforts to reduce unintended pregnancy and STI/HIV infection have consisted primarily of brief information-based programs designed to delay first intercourse and, in many but not all jurisdictions, information on contraception and safer sex is also provided. Another study shows that in recent years, anecdotal evidence and limited survey research has suggested that the age of onset of sexual maturation has declined among girls in the Western world. However, an earlier age of menarche has not been confirmed by studies of large representative samples of girls.
