Sure. I can offer something new. I liked the article because it confirmed my hunch that things haven't changed much since I was in college.
"In 1980, the median number of lifetime sex partners for college men was 4, and this number has remained fairly constant through 2010. For college women, the median number was 3, again remaining unchanged from 1980 to 2010. Likewise, the median age of first sexual intercourse was about 17 for both men and women in 1980 and has remained the same. These data suggest that college students today are no more promiscuous than they were in 1980."
The sky isn't falling. There is nothing radically different about kids today. The idea that the world is going to hell in a handbasket is unfounded. Right-wingers want people to think college campuses are dens of sin. But, it's no different today than it was 40 years ago. Everything is going to be alright. Nothing to see here folks.
