Study: Abstinence May Lead to Risky Acts
Yahoo! News - Study: Abstinence May Lead to Risky Acts: "Among virgins, boys who have pledged abstinence were four times more likely to have had anal sex, according to the study. Overall, pledgers were six times more likely to have oral sex than teens who have remained abstinent but not as part of a pledge.
The pledging group was also less likely to use condoms during their first sexual experience or get tested for STDs, the researchers found."
