The reason why you hear of teen pregnancies more today than in the "olden days" is purely because we have the means to gather more data efficiently and also the means to report on it more..ie: TV, radio, internet,local networks,hospitals and clinics talking to each other and gathering data newspapers, magazines...etc etc..........PLUS !..there is any case...a general increase...........Here in the UK we have I think the highest number of teen pregnancies in Europe...and I don't mean 16 +...I mean 14 + !

Addendum:......kids grow up a lot quicker nowadays !!...they are exposed to far more sexual orientated data than a long time ago. Magazines aimed at young teens offer sexual advice ....Pop Culture is filled with sexual innuendos !!

Yeah that's super true. Aren't we kids "growing up" faster because we are fatter? That's what I heard some where.

I remember watching a show last week. An info show. And they went to Bolder Colorado High School and Junior High and College. They interviewed kids about sex. And 1/2 the kids 9 (YES 9) have experimented with sex. Crazy ain't iT?!?!?!

Yes it is crazy. Ryan when I was pregnant with my first child there was this little girl in the waiting room and her mom was scolding her about picking up the toys she was playing with at the obstetricians office. The mom was frustrated and the kid was back to me and thew a huge fit and was stomping her feet and sat on the floor and whined and cried around about not wanting to pick up her toys.. Little toys Ryan.. a Barbie some things like that.. she turned when I sat down by her mom and looked over her shoulder at me. She stopped whining and smiled . then looked at her mom and scowled..! LOL She was so little cute and had such a baby face I thought what a pretty little girl!..The nurse came and called a name two women looked up and then this mom stood up and said too her daughter come on get off the floor its time to see the doctor she started kicking her feet and said NO I don't have to I don't want to..mom grabbed her hand and lifted her up quite forcefully! When she turned around I almost dropped my mouth on the floor she was just nine years old and 7 months pregnant! I honestly had to leave as I was starting to cry for her.. she was still a little girl playing with Barbie's and she was about to give birth to another baby when in my opinion she was still a baby herself! Oh my I was worried about her for weeks! she did not do well with her delivery and she hemorrhaged and neither little mama or baby made it to the hospital in time. Her body was not ready for a baby. Several of us moms asked many times and the doctor would say nothing. But one day just before I delivered, the girls mom came and posted a very nice thank you to all of us women who had spoken so nicely to her and her daughter and said that they had both passed on and that she had been carrying a little girl. It was so very sad.. I will never forget her little face and my shock that first day meeting her. I am sorry they both passed and I have always kept them in my prayers.

So how does the sperm meet the eggs anyways. I know you put your penis in the vigina, but is there like a turn on and off button or what?

The reason why you hear of teen pregnancies more today than in the "olden days" is purely because we have the means to gather more data efficiently and also the means to report on it more..ie: TV, radio, internet,local networks,hospitals and clinics talking to each other and gathering data newspapers, magazines...etc etc..........PLUS !..there is any case...a general increase...........Here in the UK we have I think the highest number of teen pregnancies in Europe...and I don't mean 16 +...I mean 14 + !

It rather depends on what you mean by the historic comparisons.

It is certainly true that we have a lot of sex on television, and other media; but in the past, there was a lot of sex on the farm (every young child was more than aware of what bulls did to cows).  There was a middle class prudishness that developed as people moved off the land and nature seemed a nasty dirty thing, and sex simply was not talked about (not sure if this post is more relevant here of in Karen's thread on sex and violence).

Until the early Victorian era, the age of consent in England was 12 years old for girls, and 14 for boys (as it still is in some third world countries - it would be interesting to know how many of those teenage pregnancies we have today are from recent immigrants from some of these countries, although that is not to question that many are not).  Although it has to be said that from 1753 you required your parents consent to marry if you were under 21 (not the case in Scotland, and hence the popularity of Gretna Green for elopements), and if you got a girl pregnant while she was living at home, or in employment, you were likely to be sued for seduction (i.e. that the employer/parent was denied the benefit of the labour of the girl because she had become pregnant).

The law on seduction seems to have been slightly different in the US, but it is interesting to note that Frank Sinatra, as late as 1938, was charged (although the charges were later dropped) with seduction.

I think that better diet is causing children to enter puberty earlier, but I am not at all sure that this is lowering the age in which people start to become sexually active.  On the contrary, my own suspicion is that the age of sexual activity probably has more to do with stress levels in the community, and likely life expectancy (it is rational to assume that people who see members of their community living longer have less of a need to become sexually active early, since their whole time frame in which they view life is longer; whereas people who fear imminent death will more likely want to rush through the other parts of their life, including rushing into sexual activity and parenthood).

Certainly, in times of war, there is an increase in births in all age groups.

Also, ofcourse, there is a lot of peer pressure (not specifically on TV and the media, but amongst the kids around you) where if they are all having early sexual experiences, one feels left out, while if they are all abstaining, then that is the norm one expects for oneself.  There is also cross generational expectations, where I would expect the children of teenage mums to be more likely to follow their parents example.
