RESULTS: Adolescent females involved with an older partner have higher odds of having intercourse with that partner than females with partners their own age, after adjustment for demographic covariates.

The magnitude of this association is most dramatic among the youngest females—for example, the odds of intercourse among 13-year-old females with a partner six years older are more than six times the odds among 13-year-old females with a same-age partner (odds ratio, 6.4), while 17-year-old females with partners six years older have about twice the odds of intercourse when compared with those who have a same-age partner (2.1).

There isn’t a ‘right age’ to start having relationships – every child is different, and every family will feel differently about this issue.

But here are some averages: Many teenagers spend a lot of time thinking and talking about being in a relationship.

This study reveals that the digital realm is one part of a broader universe in which teens meet, date and break up with romantic partners.
