Teenage girls are having more lesbian sex than ever, a study by the Williams Institute shows. They’re also less likely to get pregnant and less likely to have sex with dudes.

Well those things kinda go hand in hand, no?

The study, published in the Archive of Sexual Behavior, compared data from the 2002 U.S. National Survey of Family Growth to the 2006-2008 version. It found that:

Seventeen-year-old girls in the [2006-2008 period] were much less likely to have been heterosexually active (63% v. 46%), and more than twice as likely to have had same-sex contact (5% v. 11%). This group of teens was also more than three times as likely to have used emergency contraception (5% v. 17%) and less likely to have been pregnant (18% v. 12%).

This should be the Religious Right’s new plan to cut down on out-of-wedlock pregnancy and abortion: teen lesbianism!
