The Other Side of the Story

Writing in the New York Times, Tara Parker-Pope decries ''the myth of rampant teenage promiscuity''. A bit less than half of all high school kids haven't had sex, and the percentage is on the decline. Also, there are more virgins and less oral sex among virgins. Lastly, parents just need to understand that kids don't date in the traditional way- they fool around and then they might or might not date. What does this have to do with the ''generation sex'' story I just posted? Well, nothing really. But it adds some perspective.
