When I was a teen I used to think I knew it all, even if i felt naive and unsure most of the time. It was corny to be whiny and weak right, coz that's just uncool!
Now that I've grown up, it seems that even if teens are no longer as naive as we were, they still wind up getting pregnant or having STD even with all the sex ed classes, media exposure and internet access these kids have today!
I guess it goes back to teens pretending to be cool again...
It wasnt so long ago that I was a teenager myself and yes, peer pressure is one of the factors why teenagers have sex in the first place. Even with all the info on STD, some teens are either too embarassed to ask about/buy protection or it was the last thing on their minds. n.n
