When teenagers lose their virginity, many no doubt believe they are “giving themselves” to the person they will ultimately marry. But it rarely ends up that way. Teen romance usually has a short life span. But having already had sex once can make it easier to have sex again without assuming the relationship is destined to last. Sexually experienced teens aged 15 to 19 are more likely to have had multiple partners than to have engaged in sex with only one person. Among girls, 55 percent say they have never had sex, 28 percent report having had more than one sexual partner, and 18 percent have had just one partner.

Most commonly, they report having used a condom. Younger teens are less likely than older teens to use some type of birth control. Teen boys and girls who first have sex with a significantly older (four or more years) partner are less likely to use protection than those with partners closer to their own age. The advent of HIV infection and AIDS has clearly had an impact on the use of some type of protection, particularly condoms, during first intercourse. Men and women aged 15 to 44 who had sex the first time prior to 1980 were unlikely to have used any form of birth control, and only about one in five said they used a condom.
