The number one thing that I notice about teenage boys and their sexuality is that they are incredibly romantic. Having sex was not the number one thing on a teenage boys mind. It was actually finding a girl or a boy or a partner, that they could feel really comfortable and connect. Teenage boys are craving connection to another human being. That's what these boys wanted. They didn't just want sex, they wanted a meaningful, deep, and fun relationship with a partner.
