Report Intro/Brief:
“This report provides basic statistics on the prevalence of oral sex among opposite-sex partners and the timing of first oral sex relative to first vaginal intercourse among adolescents and young adults aged 15–24 years using a question added in 2007 to the 2006– 2010 NSFG. Among females and males aged 15–24 years, about two-thirds had ever had vaginal intercourse and about the same proportion had ever had oral sex. About 28% of females and 29% of males aged 15–24 years had never had any type of sexual contact.”
