4% of US Adults are Virgins


According to a recent survey from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, 1 out of 20 adults in the U.S. have never had sex before, with rates tripling among the Mexican-American population, the lowest of any ethnicity.

The CDC said: "Approximately 96 percent of adults age 20-59 years have had sex, with the age group 20-29 having the lowest percent (91 percent)." Also in the report, 15% waited until they were 21 or older before they had sex for the first time.

Additionally, the number of people who lost their virginity before they reached the age of 15 was 16%.

The survey used data gathered from the period 1999-2002.

  Of course...  
...there are problems with the methodology used.
  by: Major-General   06/26/2007 01:28 AM     
I contend that the problem is the methodology that they DIDN'T use.

Agreed and lets not forget the mentally disabled.

I know a cure for this….I’m a virgin….three times….

Now I feel like a bigger slut than I did before I read this.
  by: valkyrie123     06/26/2007 04:56 AM     
  I'm one  
Of those 4%. And yes, most of us will die virgins.
  by: _undead   06/26/2007 05:09 AM     
would be interesting to know what percentages are male and female. this is something i've been wondering for a while - because i know quite a few people in their 20's who haven't had it, and i'm pretty sure i'm not the only person to have circles of friends like this!
  by: matt5409   06/26/2007 10:28 AM     
that's for me to know and you to wonder about!

@ matt: yea, it would be interesting to check the gender and other cultural/ education factors.

disabled people count, but there are also cultural, religious and personal reasons.
  by: DarkAngelJG     06/26/2007 01:25 PM     
  the handicap need lovin' too  
That's why I ONLY have sex with the disabled, whether they like it or not.
  by: ManilaRyce     06/26/2007 01:36 PM     
  This is..  
A survey. I put very little stake into surveys where the results are potentially embarassing: People will lie about things like virginity, 'size', cheating, number of partners, etc out of embarassment, by nature.

They were the counting all the people living in the Virgin Islands as virgins.
