Every sexual encounter presents the risk of getting a sexually transmitted disease, and unprotected sex risks pregnancy. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 48 per cent of all American teens have had sex before graduating from high school. Thirty per cent of young women become pregnant at least once before they reach the age of 20, according to The National Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy.
