Evangelical teens in "Forbidden Fruit"

Mark Regnerus, a sociology professor, has written a book about how religious beliefs influence sexual behaviour - or don't, as the case may be. Rather deliciously, he has called it Forbidden Fruit. Read Slate's review of Forbidden Fruit by Hanna Rosin.

The most predictable conclusion is that, yes, church-going teens have sex, but they are less likely to be prepared for it with contraception and condoms.
