However, if 'first experience' is not positive, there may be potential risks associated with it, 'What kind of intimate behavior (sex acts) children 14-year-old take? The researcher investigated '. The elderly are often referred to as “these days young people are ......”, but as a result of the survey, it is clearly shown that there are more people who have never experienced sex compared to parents and so on.

Previous studies have shown that 30% of people born in the 1980s and 1990s had experienced sexual activity by the age of sixteen. In the case of people born in the early 1990s, as many as 18% of people experienced sexual activity by the age of fifteen. However, according to the latest research by Professor Yvonne Kelly et al. Who is studying childhood and adolescent health and development at University College London, teenagers born after 2000 are out of their teens. The proportion of experiencing sexual activity has been found to be far less than previously predicted .

The Millennium Cohort Study tracks the lives of approximately 19,000 youth born in the United Kingdom between 2000 and 2001. In this follow-up survey, we surveyed every nine months the survey object that was born between September 2000 and January 2002. Among the data collected by the Millennium Cohort Study, Professor Kelly and others used the latest data collected at the age of 14 to study about 11,000 private lives in detail.



It was said that 11,000 people who were surveyed were asked to judge the sexual activity that they had experienced in 3 of 'mild', 'moderate' and 'severe'. In addition, 'mild' sexual activity is to hold hands, kiss or hug, 'moderate' sexual activity is act that does not touch genitals directly from under clothes, 'serious' sexual activity is It is considered as oral sex or sexual activity (sex).

According to the survey, 58% have experienced 'mild' sexual activity, while only 7.5% of young people who have experienced 'moderate' sexual activity have only '3.2 severe' sexual activity. It is clear that only% have experienced. Although Professor Kelly admits that the survey is 'younger to investigate' than other similar surveys, 'it is different from the fact that this generation of young people is more distant from sexual activity than other generations . The research shows it. According to Professor Kelly's “another study,” the percentage of young people born in the 1990s and 2000s experiencing sexual activity at the age of 14 is decreasing from 2.1% to 0.9% is.

It was unclear at first that the tendency that 'youths born after 2000 are away from sexual activity', which became clear from the survey, is happening. However, Professor Kelly says, 'Most parents can rest assured that they are probably not experiencing sexual activity if their children do not participate in other dangerous activities such as drinking and smoking.' In other words, young people who have already experienced sexual activity at the age of 14 are likely to also experience other dangerous activities such as drinking and smoking.

In addition, young people who are uneasy about their friends, young people whose parents always stay out of their place, young people who are late (or can go out) may experience severe sexual activity It is also clear that In addition, potential links have been found with dangerous indicators such as depression symptoms and medication experience.

Kelly points out that young people who go out late, drink or smoke late are more likely to experience all sorts of sexual activity. In addition, they should be able to make the sexual activity of young people more positive by performing appropriate interventions at appropriate times. And, most importantly, Professor Kelly said, knowing how to ensure that sexual activity between young people is the desired fun for each other.
