Abstinence and STDs

FROM NBC: When teens say one thing, science might say another! In a survey of young adults, about 10-percent said they'd been abstinent for a year or had never had sex. However they also tested positive for a sexually transmitted disease.

Those who admitted to sexual activity were twice as likely to have an STD as those who said they'd been abstinent. But researchers say that discrepancy was actually small. There were more than 14-thousand young adults in the study.

Women and African Americans were most likely to test positive for an STD.

I would like to know when kids start having sex. I know we have ran stories about kids as young as 10-years-old, but that can't be normal. I wonder the average age these days. I am sure it's too young in my opinion. What do you think?
