Sedentary Teens More Likely to Have Early Intercourse

Teens who spend much of their leisure time in sedentary activities, like watching TV and playing computer games, could be at higher risk for early intercourse, experts report. 

Researchers analyzed data from 34,674 adolescents who took part in the Global School-Based Health Survey. The participants ranged in age from 12 to 15 and lived in Africa, South America, or Southeast Asia. 

Twelve percent of the teens said they had had sexual intercourse within the previous year.  The prevalence of intercourse increased with the amount of time spent in leisurely sedentary activities.

The panel concluded that testosterone may improve sexual desire, arousal, orgasm, and pleasure in postmenopausal women with hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD).
