A new research study finds high school students who own smartphones are more sexually active, and some use the Internet to arrange trysts.

HealthDay TV reports on a new research study that finds smartphone-using teens are more sexually active than those without…

Compared to those without cell phone internet access, those with smartphones were 1.5 times as likely to report being sexually active. Almost two times as likely to have been approached online for sex. And more than twice as likely to engage in sex with someone they met on the internet.

And that’s not all, five percent of the participants reported using the Internet to seek sex partners and 17 percent of the participants reported being approached online for sex by someone they did not know. And the kids being approached online for sex are often having unprotected sex.

The researchers hope this information leads to sex education programs that target social media platforms to get the word out.

The study involved a survey of over 1,800 high school students.
