The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released a report Thursday regarding issues surrounding American teenagers and sexual activity.
Titled “Sexual Activity and Contraceptive Use Among Teenagers in the United States, 2011–2015,” the report was authored by Joyce C. Abma, Ph.D., and Gladys M. Martinez, Ph.D., of the Division of Vital Statistics.
Here are four things you need to know about the CDC report, including a trend in the rate of sexual activity, the use of emergency contraception, and racial disparities.
Decline in Sexual Activity
The newly released CDC report found that sexual activity among unmarried teenagers in the U.S. continues to be considerably lower than it was over a generation ago.

(Link): Feds shift to abstinence, monogamy as ‘most reliable’ STD prevention
- JUNE 4, 2015 | 2:39 PM
- In a significant shift, the federal government is now calling abstinence and monogamy “the most reliable way” to avoid sexually transmitted diseases, a $16 billion annual problem that hits as many as 10 million teens a year.In a very long rewrite of the (Link): “Sexually Transmitted Diseases Treatment Guidelines, 2010,” the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention dropped the old language that monogamy and abstinence were just “a reliable way” to avoid STDs.
- The prevention section now reads: “The most reliable way to avoid transmission of STDs is to abstain from oral, vaginal, and anal sex or to be in a long-term, mutually monogamous relationship with a partner known to be uninfected.”The CDC in its (Link): “Sexually Transmitted Diseases Treatment Guidelines, 2015,” just issued, also encouraged counseling and condom use.
(Link): CDC releases updated STD treatment guidelines
- June 2015
- Major updates — which revise 2010 guidelines — include alternative treatment options to help fight gonorrhea, which has become increasingly drug resistant.
- Specifically, the combination treatment of oral gemifloxacin 320 mg plus oral azithromycin 2 g, or dual treatment with single doses of intramuscular gentamicin 240 mg plus oral azithromycin 2 g, has been shown to be effective against uncomplicated urogenital gonorrhea, Workowski said, with cure rates reaching 99.5% and 100%, respectively. The updated guidelines suggest these regimens can be used in place of cephalosporin.
- “[Gonorrhea] is very savvy at developing resistance to antibiotics,” Workowski said. “It’s a really important addition to this version of the guidelines … especially in people who have allergies to the only known remaining antimicrobial, which is cephalosporin.”
- The updated CDC guidelines also address expedited partner therapy (EPT) in the treatment of gonorrhea and chlamydia. Workowski said EPT is important with regard to gonorrhea and chlamydia because it enables people to get treated who either cannot access a physician or refuse to do so.

(Link): Forget the facts – just blame abstinence education
- The National Abstinence Education Association reports pro-teen-sex advocates have grossly distorted a report of an STD outbreak at a Texas school in order to discredit abstinence education.
- NAEA director Valerie Huber says instead of the alleged 20 confirmed cases of Chlamydia at the tiny Crane High School in Crane, Texas, there were only eight cases for all of Crane county for the whole year. Nonetheless, Huber says pro-teen-sex advocates distorted the facts and blamed sexual abstinence classes.
“We actually learned that there is not even a sex-education abstinence class in the high school; the three-day program was in the middle school,” she clarifies. “And the outbreak really wasn’t an outbreak. So it’s not a story, but it continues to be made into a story to denigrate sexual risk avoidance abstinence education.”
Huber admits she isn’t surprised to think that this is pushback from sex-education advocates who are outraged that Congress provided increased funding for abstinence education.
“They’re looking for any opportunity to attack our programs and to try to eliminate them at the local level,” she tells OneNewsNow.
Huber says it’s unfortunate this story went nationwide because now there’s a national outcry to do away with SRA (sexual risk avoidance) education.

Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson gets CPAC standing ovation as he slams hippies for ‘causing the 110million cases of STDs in America’ (but what about his own affairs?)
This is like loud mouth San Antonio preacher John Hagee who rails against divorce and broken families from his pulpit, but I’ve so far never heard him mention his wife now – she is wife #2, he had an affair on the first wife, dumped first wife for current wife (current wife was the mistress, if I recall correctly).
