Sex- a topic nobody really wants to talk about; it is a social taboo of sorts. But the truth is, it doesn’t have to be. Each year, U.S. teens experience as many as 850,000 pregnancies, and youth under age 25 experience about 9.1 million sexually transmitted diseases By age 18, 70 percent of U.S. females and 62 percent of U.S. males have initiated vaginal sex.
