Sex and Genes

There have been articles lately that report on a study into the effect of one's genetic makeup on how early virginity is lost. See here, for example. Once you look at the data and attempt to understand what it actually revealed, you get to the following conclusion:

Some people probably have genes that make them extremely likely to lose their virginity at a young age. Some others probably have genes that make them delay sexual activity for many years. Still others have genes that leave them more malleable to the environment. We are not all equally genetically driven on each type of behavior we engage in.

In other words, the research is meaningless.
