Oral sex reserved for the sexually active kids  

5 comments
A new study shows that the majority of teenagers who want to remain virgins are not turning to oral sex as a means to preserve their virginity. The study involved 2,200 teenagers, which I'm presuming were all heterosexual, or perhaps included homosexual men, because the study separates "oral sex" from "intercourse," thus excluding lesbians. It revealed that those who labeled themselves as "virgins" were much less likely to report that they had tried oral sex, than those who labeled themselves as "non-virgins."

Of course, conservatives are using this as a platform to advocate for abstinence-only education, claiming that intercourse leads to other sexual activities... like oral sex. To me, this study has presented positive results. It shows that teenagers are finally starting to acknowledge the fact that oral sex is sex. Due to lack of proper sex education, there have been too many teenagers who believed that oral sex is not actual sex, and thus did not see the need to use a condom. Many teenagers are not taught that oral sex can put them at risk for STDs. The fact that only sexually active teenagers are engaging in oral sex is a good thing because then perhaps these teenagers will have a better idea of what they're doing, and therefore will use condoms! I really don't understand why people like Valerie Huber, director of the National Abstinence Education Association, claims that this study "presents significant risk for future sexual experimentation and so underscores the need for redoubled emphasis on abstinence education for teens."

Isn't it better for sexually experienced teens to engage in the "sexual experimentation" than those who haven't a clue what they're doing?

What next?

    The lack of sexual education in adoloscentes is an issue that is of great importance, any sex, either sexual intercourse or oral sex is sex and the end has the same risk of contracting disease. Abstinence among adolescents is very difficult so we have to encourage more sexual eduacion to explain the risks associated with having sex irresponsibly. As for virginity, you play this in your blog, is a taboo that people want to break. Focusing more on what your blog says, oral sex is a practice that can also cause disease.

    Certain medical conditions cause female sexual dysfunction. These include hypertension, diabetes, high cholesterol, cardiovascular disease, peripheral vascular disease, neurologic disorders, and insomnia. Treatment for female sexual dysfunction depends on the diagnosis and therapy for the particular condition causing the problem.
