High school proms are and have been an exciting American tradition for many high school students. Typically, proms are exclusively for upper class-men and have historically been considered a rite of passage of sorts. Statistical data collected by Statistical Brain Research Institute has shown that approximately 3 to 5 percent of American teenagers will lose their virginity on prom night if they haven’t already. Planned or not, the numbers don’t lie, folks. This is modern day data not to be confused with proms the way they were initially intended.
