What you might not know 2

According to the research collected online from 5,865 people ranging in age from 14 to 94:
The study found that condom use was highest among adolescents,(more teenagers use condoms than adults...sigh) especially among black and Hispanic teens, said Michael Reece, director for Sexual Health Promotion at the Indiana University. He also noted that teens reported being well aware of sexually transmitted diseases and pregnancy. Seventy to eighty percent of teens said they used condoms the last time they had vaginal intercourse


Also according to NYtimes, a vast majority of sexually active 14- to 17-year-olds — 80 percent of boys and 69 percent of girls — said they had used a condom the last time they had intercourse, compared with well under half of their adult counterparts.
According to Yahoo news,
Condom use appears to drop as a young person's age rises.
While 80 per cent of 15- to 18-year-olds reported using condoms, the figure dropped to 63 per cent among those 20 to 24.
So I dont get, isit the older you get the more irresponsible???
