Why are teenage girls becoming sexually active?

There is not a specific answer to this but there are many things attributing to this factor:

  • Sex is in the media everywhere; magazines, music, TV, news (good or bad news)
  • There is less sex education that is promoted properly
  • Parents are taking less responsibility and parenting in their children's lives to teach them right and wrong (whether it be moral values according to safe sex or religious values about when to have sex)
  • Women feeling intimidated about saying "no" to the male asking for sex
  • Curiosity without education about the consequences of sex.
