3 abstained until they said I do.
Deeply religious people are better at waiting... 20% do wait.
Do you think your parents waited?
While it was more encouraged and expected to wait than it is today, statistics say from 1954-1963, about 11% waited.
And from 1994 to 2003, 3% waited.
There's a new way of thinking, and I must clarify for the older audience, that the sex statistics here, are for intercourse ( penis in vagina). Young women, who have had oral and/or anal sex, but no intercourse, do consider themselves virgins; and indeed, in the sense of the word, they are.

- easiest to work with, wide range of characteristics that are fairly easily modified. Modern steel bikes can be made almost as light as any other frame material. A finely-crafted steel bike has a ride quality that other frame materials aspire to.
- one of the lightest materials, but often judged to be a harsh ride - especially for smaller riders. To compensate for this, tubes made of aluminum are often oversized. This allow for a thinner-walled tube, with a nicer ride quality, while maintaining strength. Can be more difficult to weld than steel.
- formerly thought of as an exotic material, titanium is lighter than steel, and has a slightly better strength/mass ratio. Also has a slightly softer road feel than steel, which makes it a great choice for a bike you're planning on riding long distances. Much more difficult to weld than steel. Not subject to corrosion, so a titanium frame can be a lifetime investment.
- all bikes we think of as being "carbon fiber" are really carbon fiber impregnated resin. That is to say, plastic. Carbon fiber is an extremely lightweight material, and has superior vibration damping and stiffness, which makes it possible to have a very comfortable bike that is also very efficient at power transfer. Because of the cost involved in making molds, most carbon fiber bikes are stock, not custom.
Some of the main features of bamboo designs are vibration damping, crash tolerance, and the natural look of the bike.

Yap, this summer I will try this.
A hotdog with a cheese string, and wrapped in bacon.
Speaking of bacon... Mr KLS makes the best bacon wrapped scallops ever.
On the grill, slowly, while basting with equal amounts of brown sugar and ketchup.
