Study says early sex does not make for bad kids - Rick Weiss, The Washington Post & Chicage Tribune, November 12, 2007

Researchers at Ohio State University garnered little attention in February when they found that youngsters who lose their virginity earlier than their peers are more likely to become juvenile delinquents. So obvious and well established was that cause-and-effect connection that it was already part of the required curriculum for federal "abstinence only" programs. 
There was just one problem: It is probably not true.

"It turns out that there was no positive relationship between age of first sex and delinquency," Harden said.

being and better sexual health and discuss implications of these findings for policies on sexuality education.
