ABSTRACT
The article discusses the sexual behaviors of teenagers in the United States as indicated in the Center for Disease Control and Prevention's biannual Youth Risk Behavior Surveys (YRBS). The survey focused on high-school students in grades 9-12 in all 50 states who were asked specific questions related to their respective sexual behaviors. The results of the YRBS indicated a different perspective on teenage sexual behavior compared to public and media perceptions. As a matter of fact, a 13 percent decrease in high school students who engage in sexual intercourse was reported during the 1991-2005 period.
