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.

  Are you a MEXI CAN

  by: Zmethod     06/26/2007 12:48 AM     
  Hey, this is something private  
 
nothing about getting laid or not!
it's up to them and the person they are with... non of our business!

  Here's the full study  
   
  by: caution2     06/26/2007 01:20 AM     
  Of course...  
 
...there are problems with the methodology used.
 
  by: Major-General   06/26/2007 01:28 AM     
  @major  
 
I contend that the problem is the methodology that they DIDN'T use.

  @DarkAngelJG  
 
Hmmm does that mean you're a virgin!?

: P~
 
  by: Zmethod     06/26/2007 02:31 AM     
  i hate to say it  
 
but i would guess the majority of those 4% are physically disabled
 
  by: maverick7h     06/26/2007 04:02 AM     
  @maverick7h  
 
Likely.
 
  by: mcink2   06/26/2007 04:10 AM     
  @4%  
 
Oh, you wacky Christians and your morals...
 
  by: mkez   06/26/2007 04:17 AM

Agreed and lets not forget the mentally disabled.
 
  by: QuestioningAnswers   06/26/2007 04:27 AM     
  Wonderful!  
 
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     
  @zmethod  
 
that's for me to know and you to wonder about!
=P

@ 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.
 
  by: velger   06/26/2007 03:22 PM     
  Virgins  
 
They were the counting all the people living in the Virgin Islands as virgins.

  Do virgin sheep count?  
 
As long as they didn't inhale?
 
  by: White Albino   06/27/2007 03:32 AM
