Love it, Ara.

And seriously, Tax. If you ever get stranded here and must have sex, demand a test from your partner first. :shock:

I would have liked to see a different lust for porn consumption. It's higher in "family value" states (Teen pregnancy, too)

That's more due to stupidity than lustfulness though.

Dont be a dummy, cum on her tummy.
Energy is neither created or destroyed, so it is fairly safe to assume the particles that make up your body will exist forever. We are all eternal.

Religious attitudes of the greater community have a direct correlation to teen pregnancy rate.

The more religious the state, the higher the rate of teen pregnancy. Who'd of thunk it?

How do you believe the removal of the stigma of "bastard" children has affected that statistic?

I find it more likely that a high rate of bastards amoung the population would remove the stigma than the inverse.

Anecdote, which is not the singular of data, suggests that the dual root of high STD prevalence and teen birthrate (which is actually what that study measured, sorry), is the stigmatism of those who are prepared to have safe sex as 'sluts', but there is a sense that getting caught up in the moment and having unsafe sex is better. However, there are no studies to back this up, despite its appeal.

Remember, this study only reveals a strong correlation between the two. There could be a common causal factor, causation could be in either direction, visciously cyclic, or pure coincidence.

Ara - I just got home from work and my brain is fried. But, I believe there are studies out there which can help support your belief. In the more religious parts of the U.S., they have strict abstinence-only education in their schools. Some of them have been known to spread false information about the effectiveness of condoms (and other BC methods) as well as creating a stigma about sex. Some don't ever mention BC except for the stigma they push. A lot of these abstinence only programs are run by groups with religious agendas. That could be the correlation you're looking for?
