Howzat "Abstinence Only" Thing Working Out?

Just fine, if you're a herpes, chlamydia, papilloma or trichomoniasis virus. In fact, it could hardly be going better: more than a QUARTER of teen-age girls (and more than half of all Black teen-age girls) are infected with STDs!
I call that an astonishing success: Human papillomavirus, or HPV, affected 18% of the girls surveyed, chlamydia 4%, trichomoniasis 2.5%, and herpes simplex virus 2%.

(I am SOOOOOOOO glad I'm too old for teen-age girls.)
