US Sexual Behaviour Survey

Posted FYI.

(Formatted and punctuated for clarity:)

Among adults aged 25-44, about 98% of women and 97% of men ever had vaginal intercourse.

89% of women and 90% of men ever had oral sex with an opposite-sex partner.

36% of women and 44% of men ever had anal sex with an opposite-sex partner.

Twice as many women aged 25-44 (12%) reported any same-sex contact in their lifetimes compared with men (5.8%).

Among teenagers aged 15-19, 7% of females and 9% of males have had oral sex with an opposite-sex partner, but no vaginal intercourse.

Sexual attraction and identity correlates closely but not completely with reports of sexual behavior.

Sexual behaviors, attraction, and identity vary by age, marital or cohabiting status, education, and race and Hispanic origin.

I wish they would have had more of the last one in the abstract.
