Tyra Banks Shocked

Former supermodel and current host of The Tyra Banks Show can’t believe what is happening to teens. An anonymous survey of 10,000 teenage girls and young women provided results that will shock and scare parents. The survey was conducted over the summer on TyraShow.com, the Web site of “The Tyra Banks Show.” The Survey found:
• On average, girls are losing their virginity at 15 years of age.
• 14 percent of teens who are having sex say they’re doing it at school.
• 52 percent of survey respondents say they do not use protection when having sex.
• One in three says she fears having a sexually transmitted disease.
• 24 percent of teens with STDs say they still have unprotected sex.
• One in five girls says she wants to be a teen mom.
• About 50 percent acknowledge that they’ve hit someone.
• One out of three teens has tried drugs.
