CONTEXT The development of UK national targets to reduce the transmission of HIV and other STDs has focused health promotion efforts on advocating the use of condoms during penetrative vaginal and anal sex. However, other behaviors that can facilitate STD transmission-such as oral sex and, in particular, fellatio-have received limited attention. METHODS Between 2003 and 2005, a sample of 1,373 full- and part-time students, primarily aged 16-18, completed questionnaires about their knowledge… Expand

Sex redefined: the reclassification of oral-genital contact.
TLDR
Sociocultural conceptualizations of oral-genital contact have shifted in a way that may leave people who engage in this activity unmindful of its potential health risks, and sex education programs, which generally focus on penile-vaginal contact, could help STD prevention efforts by explaining the risks associated with oral- Genital stimulation and the measures that can be taken to minimize those risks.

Sexual behaviour in Britain: early heterosexual experience
TLDR
The increase in the proportion of women reporting first intercourse before age 16 years does not appear to have continued throughout the past decade, and only a small minority of teenagers have unprotected first intercourse, and early motherhood is more strongly associated with educational level than with family background. Expand
Heterosexual genital sexual activity among adolescent males: 1988 and 1995.
TLDR
Evidence from the National Survey of Adolescent Males showing that a substantial share of male teenagers engage in genital sexual activity beyond vaginal sexual intercourse underlines the importance of monitoring a broad spectrum of sexual behaviors among teenagers. Expand
The sexual practices of adolescent virgins: genital sexual activities of high school students who have never had vaginal intercourse.
TLDR
Few high school-aged virgins engaged in anal intercourse, but many engaged in other genital sexual activities that can transmit disease, and all can indicate a need for counseling about sexual decision making, risk, and prevention. Expand
Sexual behaviour in Britain: partnerships, practices, and HIV risk behaviours
TLDR
The increased reporting of risky sexual behaviours is consistent with changing cohabitation patterns and rising incidence of sexually transmitted infections. Expand

TLDR
increasing use of condoms for vaginal intercourse with both regular and non-regular partners has been associated with a decrease in the incidence of gonorrhoea, chlamydial infection and trichomoniasis and HIV infection showed no evidence of heterosexual spread. Expand
Oral Versus Vaginal Sex Among Adolescents: Perceptions, Attitudes, and Behavior
TLDR
This study is the first to investigate adolescents' perceptions of the health, social, and emotional consequences associated with having oral sex as compared with vaginal sex, as well as whether adolescents view oralsex as more acceptable and more prevalent than vaginal sex. Expand

TLDR
Efforts to increase young people's ability to negotiate sexual and contraceptive decision-making should be multifaceted and it is essential that parents provide a supportive climate throughout childhood and adolescence where discussions of sexual issues are acceptable and where families feel comfortable talking openly.

TLDR
The full spectrum of STD avoidance strategies warrants further study because some are ubiquitous across cultures and because they have the potential to complement or undermine safer sex programmes. Expand
Oral sex and the transmission of viral STIs.
TLDR
The evidence suggests that HIV transmission can take place through oro-genital sex from penis to mouth and vagina to mouth, and the relative importance of oral sex as a route for the transmission of viruses is likely to increase as other, higher risk sexual practices are avoided for fear of acquiring HIV infection.
