 Teens Indulging in Risky Sex Due to Booze

Britain's leading medical institution has warned that the drinking habit among teenagers is making them indulge in "risky sex" with the teenagers going further than intended under the influence of alcohol.

The Royal College of Physicians warned that such a behavior is encouraging the rise of teenage pregnancies and spread of infections.


The college said that health officials should ask about the teenagers' drinking habits when they visit sexual health clinics for contraception or the morning after pills.

The college revealed that more than 80 percent of people between 16 to 30 years of age admitted that they drank before sexual activity while over a fifth of teenage girls under 15 years of age said that they went further than they had intended when under the influence of alcohol.
