    Post Smart teenagers 'delay sex'

    from BBC News, 2000-Feb-29:

    Smart teenagers 'delay sex'
    Study examined teenagers' sexual habits

    Smarter adolescents start having sexual relations later than teens of average intelligence, researchers have found.

    According to US scientists, intelligent adolescents also tend to postpone any kind of lesser sexual activity - from holding hands and kissing to heavy petting.

    The researchers, from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, also found that the least intelligent teens also appear to delay sexual contact.

    Dr Carolyn Halpern, assistant professor of maternal and child heath, said an adolescent with an intelligence score of 100 - average intelligence - was up to five times as likely to have had sexual relations than a peer with an intelligence score of 120-130.

    Smarter girls were even less likely than their male counterparts to have sex at an early age.

    Researchers analysed information from two detailed confidential surveys

    They used a test called the Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test to measure intelligence.

    The analysis revealed that for each point increase in intelligence score the chance of necking went down 2.5% for boys and 1.6% for girls.

    The likelihood of intercourse decreased 2.7% for boys and 1.7% for girls.

    It is commonly assumed that students who get good grades are more reluctant to have sexual relations because they are focused on their studies, and do not want to jeopardise their future.

    But the researchers found that more intelligent students did not even engage in behaviours such as kissing.

    Dr Halpern said: "It is hard to believe that teens avoid kissing because they see it as the start of a slippery slope to sexual intercourse and possible pregnancy."

    Surprising finding
    Dr Halpern said the finding that the least intelligent teenagers also refrained from sexual relations was surprising.

    She said: "We thought that teens on the high end would be least likely to have sex, and teens on the low end would be most likely.

    "We thought teens of lower intelligence might be more vulnerable to being taken advantage of or less likely to consider possible negative consequences of having sex."

    The researchers suggest that less intelligent teenagers may be more likely to be sheltered by their parents or guardians.

    Anne Weyman, chief executive of the Family Planning Association, said: "We know that young people with aspirations to achieve in life are less likely to engage in early sexual activity and that ambition is the best form of contraception.

    "Children with special needs on the other hand, be they physical, emotional or intellectual, are likely to be more closely supervised and therefore have less opportunity to engage in early sexual experiences."

    Ms Weyman said it was important that all young people received responsible education about sex and relationships.

    I didn't start having sex until I was almost 21. Guess that puts me in the genius category.

    Delaying sex? Should we even need to be told this? Sexual activity should reside within the parameters of marriage and only for the purpose of procreation.

    Do not want to discourage you but no one wants to be totally moral. Even I don't care anymore.

    Sexual morality leads to respect of women! Do you honestly think the men who set the slaves free would have done so if they had cared for their wives, mothers and daughters? Don't you think that the same men who talk of anti-racism aren’t indulging in pedophilia?

    Sexual activities should only be looked upon in a good light when between a consenting married man and women! Any thing else is Jewry and should be looked upon as so! On the other hand as long as you don't tell any body your actions how can the morality of those actions be judged? And I am sure no W.N would ever do anything too over the top yet again how would we know?

    Sex is functional and recreational. A man and woman in love having sex with one another for pleasure is immoral? In what way? Doesn't God/Yahweh/Allah (whichever you call Him) want us to be happy? If this was immoral to have sex for pleasure, why were humans created with nerve endings in the genital area? If it's only for procreation, why not design the sexual anatomy so it doesn't feel- also good for a less painful childbirth.

    Logic tells us God/Yahweh/Allah wants couples to enjoy intimacy, sex and love together. It strengthens their bond to one another, and that bond between husband and wife strengthens the family. :hug

    It feels good so animals will reproduce. If there was no feeling what would be the motivation for reproducing?

    sex and intimacy are important but Sexual acts themselves are designed for procreation specifically! Nature shows us that. You don't see animals running around having sex just to do it, do you?

    Sure I am as guilty as the next person for having sex other then to concieve a child, but I do know that is the original purpose for the act.

    I have never been a person just to have sex with someone because it felt good. Sex comes with someone you feel a bond with and this bond goes deeper then just thinking someone is hot, it is your natural instinct, usually, that this is a person whom you are compatible with and capable of producing offspring with as well. Just my 2 cents!

    Well, actually yes, dolphins, chimps (though I haven't seen dolphins do it, but the chimps a few times on the Discovery channel!! hehehe)...the more intelligent animals have sex for pleasure. Funny thing, isn't it?

    If sex is just for procreation where did the other sexual acts come from? Hell? The devil? I did not know you can get pregnant from oral sex :eek:
    I envision a world where people dawning long white robes and elaborate headdresses run rampant down the streets, waving their arms in the air while screaming "we've gone mad, we've gone mad", like defrocked monks breaking the silence of ages past.
