The Sex Recession - why are young people having so little sex?

The Sex Recession
  Why are young people having so little sex?

Interesting article that evaluates a smorgasbord of ideas related to the changes occurring in sexual behavior in youth. I enjoyed the "shot-gun" approach to evaluate the many variables that have changed for youth today, and what factors may be playing the biggest role in changing behavior (and the risks these changes may have for the younger generations).  I'm always thinking about how best to raise Arthur when reading these, and if I were to summarize in a sentence: allow for plenty of free and unstructured play. Although after typing that, I can think of a multitude of other things to evaluate, but I think free play is possibly the most important.
