Virgin Breakfasts

“TOKYO (Reuters Life!) – Teens who skip breakfast as middle school students tend to have sex at an earlier age than those who start the day with a proper meal, a government-backed Japanese medical researcher said on Friday.”


“The average age of first-time sex for those who said they ate breakfast every day as a middle school student was 19.4, while for those who skipped breakfast, the average age was 17.5.”

Considering how young kids start gettin’ it on in the US of A, 17.5 sounds very mature to me. But I think the US needs a study like this. It could lead to state funded breakfasts from K-12 nationwide!
