Good News - Fewer teens are having sex

Fewer teens are having sex. This is really interesting and dramatic news statically speaking. The numbers really are significant. The question, I think, is what is the cause? It would only be speculation but I think contributors are:

1. A better economy: A good economy has a deep effect on peoples stress level and the need to medicate with irresponsible behavior. Kids see the system working and they plan for the future and therefore act more responsibly.

2. More open communication: Education is always good. We are more open and therefore kids are more prepared for the onslaught of sexual feelings and how to again act responsibly when faced with a sudden decision.

Any ideas as to the cause of this blessed upturn in responsible behavior.

God Bless, brad
