Despite fears of a hypersexual culture, most American teens are postponing sex until their late teens or older, and typically use some kind of birth control when they do start, according to an extensive new federal study released Wednesday.
This pattern, seen since 2002, reflects "a significant long-term decline" in the past 20 years, said NCHS researcher Gladys Martinez, whose October report used data from several cycles of the National Survey of Family Growth.
"That's due to a drop in black females who are sexually experienced," said the study's lead author, Gladys Martinez, a demographer for the government's National Center for Health Statistics.
