A 2002 survey conducted by the National Center for Health Statistics found that for most Americans, vaginal sex was more common than oral, with one notable exception: Fifty percent of teens aged 15 to 19 had engaged in vaginal sex, while 55 percent had given oral a try.Of course, gays had prioritized oral in the bedroom long before straights relaxed their attitudes (and their jaws).
When the Ugandan evangelical pastor Martin Ssempa launched a Rick Warren-aided and Michele Bachmann-approved anti-gay campaign there in 2011, his propaganda zeroed in on the horror of ass-to-mouth stimulation.
Twenty years later, there’s been a great shift: 40 percent of women from that same age bracket said they’d taken it in the butt at least once in 2010.
The straight man who continues along the path paved by his gay brethren might well be ahead of the curve.
A 2011 study found that 75 percent of gay men had performed fellatio in their most recent sexual encounter, while only 34 percent had penetrated his partner.
Oral sex was so popular it barely edged out kissing on the mouth.
