This Must Be The Greatest Disappointment to Hollywood That I Can Imagine

A report of a survey of young people suggests that the evil A-word is having an effect:

ATLANTA – Fewer teens and young adults are having sex, a government survey shows, and theories abound for why they're doing it less. Experts say this generation may be more cautious than their predecessors, more aware of sexually spread diseases. Or perhaps emphasis on abstinence in the past decade has had some influence.

Or maybe they're just too busy.
Too busyToo busy?  Excuse me while spit chocolate milk all over the screen.  I am pleased--and I almost don't quite believe it.  With the enormous energy that the entertainment industry has put into promoting early, frequent, kinky, and unmeaningful sex, I can only conclude that young people must be engaging in an act of rebellion against their virtual parents in Hollywood.

Some of the other explanations are more unbelievable.

"Some guys, at the end of the day, they'd rather channel their energy into music, playing their guitar or playing computer games," Fulbright said. "That's immediate gratification. People forget it takes work to woo somebody and keep her happy."
