Teens and sex

It's your call

April 08, 1991

Despite the threat of AIDS, drugs, street crime and the other realities of teen-age life today, nearly two-thirds of the callers to SUNDIAL Friday said they would not consider allowing their teen-age children to have sex at home.

Of 690 callers, 421, or 61 percent, said they would not consider allowing their teen-age son to bring a sexual partner home. Thirty-nine percent, or 269, said they would consider it.

Of 683 callers, 431, or 63 percent, said they would not consider allowing their teen-age girl to have sex at home, while 252, or 37 percent, said they would consider it.

"It's Your Call" represents a sampling of opinions from certain segments of the community, but it is not balanced demographically, as would be done in a scientific public opinion poll.
