Worried that your teenager’s sex life is affecting his school performance?

A provocative new study has found that teens in committed relationships do no better or worse in school than those who don’t have sex.

The same isn’t true for teens who “hook up.” Researchers found that those who have casual flings get lower grades and have more school-related problems compared with those who abstain.

The findings were presented Sunday at a meeting of the American Sociological Association in Atlanta.

A recent survey found that nearly half of high school students reported having sexual intercourse last year.
