Virgin Territory: What Young Adults Say About Sex, Love, Relationships, and The First Time

Virgin Territory

The more we know about young people’s sexual experiences and how they feel about them, the better we are at communicating with them about risks, consequences, and contraception.  We also know that delaying sex, by even a year or two, can protect younger teens from many increased sexual risks. This survey asks young men and women what they thought, what they remembered, and how they felt about the first time they had sex, and how they feel about it now.
