The magazine article posted on the right examines the once highly valued chastity of American women spanning the years 1912 through 1946 - and the rise in premarital sex:

Of the women who married before 1912 - 12 percent were non-virgins upon marriage

Of the women who married during or immediately after W.W. I - 26 percent were non-virgins upon marriage

Of the women who married between 1922 and 1931 - 49 percent were non-virgins upon marriage

Of the women who married between 1932 and 1937 - 68 percent were non-virgins upon marriage

A 1946 study revealed that among the college girls questioned it was discovered that middle class girls were more likely to have had premarital sex than the girls from wealthier households.

This 1961 article examined the question: Is sex a requirement in order to lead a happy life?
