Surge in teenage sex

Surge in teenage sex...

As risky alcohol consumption among Australia's teenagers has gone up so has the incidence of sex "under the influence" and the number of partners, but not condom use.

A survey of Australian year 10 and 12 students has shown a surge in sexual activity over the past decade, and while awareness of HIV/AIDS remained high, so was the rate of risky sexual practices.

"Rates of alcohol consumption among secondary students have increased markedly, as has the proportion of young people engaging in sex while under the influence of alcohol and drugs," said Paul Agius, from Melbourne's La Trobe University.

"We also found that there is a marked increase in year 12 students having sex with multiple partners."

In 1997, one in five (19.6 per cent) male year 12 students reported having sex with three or more partners in the past year.

When the same question was put to young men in 2008, the figure had almost doubled (38.2 per cent).

For young women in year 12, those who reported three or more partners in the past year also jumped, over the decade, from 12.9 per cent to 27.2 per cent.

Mr Agius said Australia's rate of teenage pregnancy ranked among the highest in the developed world, while sexually transmitted infections among young adults has risen in the past 10 years.

The survey showed students continued to report "high" awareness of HIV/AIDS while awareness of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) also made a small improvement over the decade.

Young women also reported higher overall awareness of the risks of unsafe sex, showing the need for public health campaign targeting young men.

"It is concerning that students appear to be better informed about HIV than either STIs or hepatitis, which are more common," Mr Agius said.

The percentage of young men who reported using a condom for their last sexual encounter remained stable, at 71.1 per cent in 1997 and no improvement in 2008 at 70.9 per cent.

"Although consistent condom use remains moderately high, it is of some concern that condom use has not increased since 1997 despite related increases in sexual activity ... and increased rates of sexually transmitted infections," Mr Agius said.

The research is published in the October edition of the Australian and New Zealand Journal of Public Health.

This means that is it becoming more and more common fir teenagers to have sex, both willingly and under the influence of drugs and alcohol. However with this, the importance use of the use of contraception is becoming less and less.

1. The article is about HIV/Aids and Queenslands new HIV prevention campaign whcih contains a very contrafertial advertisement that doesn't respect gay people. The artical is also about how one doctor does not think it will work.
Gabriel Cooper's comment, November 12, 2012 8:08 PM
The atrical relates to the HIV/Aids education part of PDHPE this year. This artical tells people how the government is trying to reduce the risks and spreading of HIV.
Gabriel Cooper's comment, November 12, 2012 8:14 PM
3. I think this artical is very good because the Queensland Government is finally setting up a prevention campaign to try and warn people about HIV and Aids and the effects it has on poeple.

I think this is good idea that you can't drink and drive both car and boat. Being drunk makes you uncoordinated and your reactions are not what they should be. You should still be able to enjoy yourself on the water without alcohol.

Teen girls' brains hit harder by booze...

BINGE drinking can have a long-lasting negative effect on the brains of teenaged girls, hitting them harder than it does young boys, a study shows.

 

The study by researchers from the University of California, San Diego and Stanford University found that girls who binge drink - defined as having four or more drinks for women and five or more for men - showed less activity in several brain regions than teetotal teenagers, both girl and boy.

Underage drinking is becoming a major problem just as the article indicates. We need to be educated on the pitfalls of drinkinking and especially to excess. I would hate what happened to that poor girl to happen to one of my friends. We as young adults need to step up and take responsibility for our actions. We are not even at the legal age so we really need to step back and take along look before we become involved in anything like this. This is something that can effect your life forever.

I think that is a good idea that police have been given more power concerning under age drinking parties because to many things can happen. If their are only minors they can become out of control and get into fights , assault others at the party and just be unruly. With the new laws it makes parents stay at the party and keep in control.
