Young Kids Who Skip Breakfast Lose Virginity Earlier
Japanese researchers have discovered that young people who skip breakfast are more likely to lose their virginity at a younger age than those with a stable home life and regular breakfasts.
n a study of 3,000 people, those who did not regularly eat breakfast when in their early teens said they lost their virginity at an average age of 17.5, versus an overall average of age 19 for all Japanese.
For those who had a morning meal when they were younger, the average age of having the first sexual experience was 19.4.
The study, backed by Japan’s health ministry, was aimed at finding ways to curb unwanted pregnancies. It concluded that a stable home life discouraged early sex.
The researchers had some theories as to the connection between breakfast and virginity; they surmised that kids whose parents didn't make breakfast for them took out their frustrations by having sex early, and that teens who started having sex early were also more likely to stay out late and therefore miss breakfast.
The researchers also discovered that children who disliked their mothers lost their virginity at an even earlier age, around 16.
