Highschool sex [Jan. 28th, 2005|09:58 pm]
So, on bOINGbOING there was a short blurb on teenage romantic relationships. The graphic that goes along with it is the best ever. Of all the "active" people in this high school, 288 of them managed to make an extended spoke ring out of partners over the course of 18 months.

Bonus for people interested in bisexuality/homosexuality: Long line off ring at 2 o'clock, halfway, top.

I have a hard time believing there was only one gay pairing out of that whole group. And frankly, that ring was a bit terrifying. Yikes.

There's another bisexual pairing around 8 O'clock on the ring itself. FMMF. There's a FF on the unconnected bit just to the right of the ring.

Considering that this is "at an unidentified Midwestern school that they renamed "Jefferson High School." It is an almost all-white school, and is the only public high school in this mid-sized city, which is more than an hour away from the nearest metropolitan area." might tend to underreport what might be considered abberent sexual behavior in context.

There's also some bi-lesbian action happening on the smaller chain to the immediate right of the big chain.

Eric, you've no idea how funny it is to see you use the phrase "bi-lesbian action". It made my day! =D

(Oh... and congrats on talking to your friend, by the way. I was concurrently reading this and that on your lj...)

Thanks. And I didn't know bi-lesbian action was so enticing. %)

You'd be amazed! I'll bet you could draw more than one cute, questioning WY boy in with that phrase... the gay-fu is strong and can be used to your advantage - you just need to learn how to, uh, harness it. ;-)

this is also the first thing I looked for. :)

there is another at ~8:00 on the "ring". very interesting. I have to agree that these are probably not the only ones though and the gay relationships were probably under-reported for obvious reasons(still in HS etc.).
