Sex and Teenagers
Topic: One should talk about Sex

Teenagers are often uncomfortable discussing sex with their parents, clergy or counselors. Girls who feel unloved will sometimes want a baby, because "someone will love me." Boys who are not doing well in school feel accomplished as a fathers because they see themselves now as adults.

Many teen pregnancies are the result of  unwanted sex which often occurs after drinking beer and other alcoholic drinks and/or taking drugs all of which lower inhibitions.

Here are some interesting statistics. A Kaiser Family Foundation study of US teenagers done in 2005 revealed 29% of teens reported feeling pressure to have sex, 33% of sexually active teens reported "being in a relationship where they felt things were moving too fast sexually", and 24% had "done something sexual they didn’t really want to do".  Other studies have shown that teens often have sex as a result of peer pressure.

Unplanned pregnancies aren't the only results of casual sex. Sexually transmitted diseases are another consequence.

Be your own boss. Don't let anyone pressure you into anything you know won't have good results. Pick your friends carefully. Stick with a crowd that has a healthy attitude.  Want more information. Visit the offices of Planned Parenthood. They have good information and offer you privacy. You can also visit them on line at www.plannedparenthood.org.
