"Correlates of Condom Use and Number of Sexual Partners Among High School Adolescents". PubMed. February 1993. Dept. of Health Promotion and Education, School of Public Health, Columbia, SC. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?cmd=Retrieve&db=PubMed&list_uids=84

This article talks about the use of condoms and the number of sexual partners among teenagers. Right off it states that there is an obvious pattern that there is less condom use and more sex partners. This is most commonly found in White students. And yet again there were surveys made to show the evidence that the sexual activity was a majority of teenagers and the majority of those teens don't use protection. There were many categories and statistics that showed that they affect the teens' sex choices. There is an overall suggestion at the end for focusing more on a teenagers mental and emotional health.
