One Third of Brit Kids Lose Virginity Before 16: Survey

Nearly a third of Brit teens have already had sex before the age of 16, according to a new survey.

While the average age to lose virginity is considered to be between 16 and 17, around a quarter of 14 to 15-year-olds confessed to having enjoyed a romp, while 12 per cent of the children under 13 confessed to having had sex.


Young Brits are losing their virginity aged just 12.

"There are indications that Brits are losing their virginity earlier," the Daily Star quoted a researcher, as saying.

"Among the 65-plus age group the average age when people lost their virginity was 19. But among those aged between 16 and 24 it was 15," the researcher added.

The survey also found that the average Briton had nine sex partners over their lifetime.

"There is a clear gender split, with men having had an average of 11 partners while women have had less than seven," the study said.

"People living in Wales or the south-west have had the most sexual partners, 12, while those in Scotland have had the least six," the study added.

With the credit crunch engulfing the economy people have stop having night-outs, and more and more Brits are turning to the bedroom for their nights in.

Brits are having more one-night stands, too - a massive 49 pct of the population owned up to it.
