Abstinence Education Effective, Fed Study Shows

While the Obama administration has stripped funding for abstinence education in favor of the strategies of Planned Parenthood, the latest survey from the National Center for Health Statistic (of the CDC) shows that the children raised during prior administrations are ever-more likely to remain virgins into adulthood.

The United States government conducted a survey regarding sex in America through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In a reverse trend from the past, the survey results show that 27% of men and 29% of women in the 15-to-24 age group have never had sex. Previously, the statistics indicated that only 22% of both males and females in that age group were virgins.

The survey also analyzed same-sex experiences among the sexes in the 15-to-44 age group. About 13% of women claimed to have had same-sex partners compared to only 5% of men.

The seventh and latest round of the survey, first done in 1973 . . .

The uptick in abstinence is one of many revealing facts arising from structured interviews with a random sample of 13,495 Americans, ages 15 to 44, that were done from 2006 to 2008. The findings provide evidence for almost every theory and supposition about the nation's secret sex life.

The survey results, released Thursday, suggest that oral sex may be a gateway to vaginal sex but that for some teens it is a stopping point. Most adults are monogamous. About 4 in 10 adults have had anal sex. Women are more likely than men to have same-sex liaisons. Or at least are more comfortable talking about them.

From "Sex study: More teens, young adults are virgins" by Sharon Jayson, USA TODAY 3/3/11

"The perception is all kids are engaging in oral sex. Obviously, that's not the case," says Jennifer Manlove, a senior research scientist with the Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit Child Trends, who studies teen sexuality. "They may be more in control of their behaviors than we think."

Debbie Roffman, a human sexuality educator in Baltimore, says it does appear "that there is a trend toward postponement."

While changes from the earlier numbers are small, the new study goes into much greater detail and fills in many gaps in the 2002 data, says lead author Anjani Chandra. Definitions, including specific descriptions of behaviors such as oral sex, were included in the new report to avoid miscommunication, she says.

Among men and women 18-44, 94% of women and 96% of men identified themselves as heterosexual while 1.1% of women and 1.7% of men said they were homosexual. The percentage of women who identified themselves as bisexual was more than three times that of men: 3.5% of women vs. 1.1% of men.

From "Anal Sex Going Up, Slowly, Says New Health Survey" by Harriet Bay, posted at Culture Clash Daily 3/4/11

The latest sex survey 'Sexual Behavior, Sexual Attraction, and Sexual Identity in the United States: Data from the 2006-2008 National Survey of Family Growth' lead by Dr Anjani Chandra, showed for young people anal sex is more than a fantasy.

Over one in three people, aged 15 to 44 years old in the National Health Survey claim they have had anal sex.

It's becoming a part of sexual practice from a very young age. "Among 15-17 year olds, 6.2% of boys and 7.0% of girls have had anal sex with an opposite-sex partner," says the report.

. . . Dr Kimberly McBride's ground breaking research, 'Heterosexual Anal Sexuality and Anal Sex Behaviors: A Review' released in 2010 points to pornography that has turned anal fashionable.

UPDATE July 2012 - Anal Sex is Main Cause of HIV Pandemic: Study

From "CDC Report: Most Teens Not Having Sex, Abstinence Ed Works" by Steven Ertelt, 3/4/11

Valerie Huber of the National Abstinence Education Association [says] that these numbers are a positive change from 2002 when only 46% of boys and 49% of girls reported no sexual contact and she says the report challenges the wisdom of the recent federal funding cuts to abstinence education.

“One hundred sixty-nine abstinence education programs lost funding and over 1 million students lost access to the very programs that can support and encourage the positive trends represented by this data,” she told “If we are serious about decreasing teen sexual activity, we need to use the data to instruct public policy.”

She continued, “Funding priority should be given to programs that support this healthy trend rather than capitulating to those who want to normalize sex among teens and simply offer contraception as a solution. The data renders ‘null and void’ the ‘abstinence is unrealistic’ claims made by anti-abstinence advocacy groups.“
