MADRID-Most Spanish women lose their virginity at the age of 17–five years younger than their mothers, a new survey claims.
The majority of Spanish women–87 percent-have their first sexual experience with their boyfriend, the study found.
But one in ten young women lose their virginity with a friend or as a result of a one-night-stand, according to the survey by the tampon producer Tampax.
In comparison, 59 percent of the mothers interviewed, had their first sexual relation with their boyfriends, 37 percent with their husbands and only three percent with a friend or someone they had just met.
More than half of Spanish mothers–55 percent-told the survey they had planned their first sexual encounter, while only 26 percent of their daughters said they had organised when and where they would lose their virginity.
Both mothers and daughters said they first fell in love when they were 16 years old.
And they had their first kiss with their boyfriend. But only 45 percent of daughters said this had been their experience, compared with 75 percent of mothers.
Almost a third of young Spanish women–30 percent-said they first tried alcohol or cigarettes at the age of 15.
And most said they started to go out and wear make-up at 16.
Both generations started working at about the same ages– between 16 and 17.
But each generation had different reasons for going to work. The mothers wanted to contribute to the household, while their daughters wanted money to have fun.
