Rebecca Plante quoted in July Cosmo

Cosmospolitan interviewed seven college-age women about why they remain virgins. Sociology professor Rebecca Plante, who has studied the sexual habits of college students, commented on why these women choose to wait. "People tend to assume that these women are waiting for religious or moral reasons or they're prudes or they have sexual hang-ups," she said. "But often, it's that they haven't met the right guy. They want the first time to be special, plus they're worried about STDs and pregnancy, so they want to be with someone they trust."

The article appeared in the July issue of the magazine.
