Boekeloo, Bradley O.; Howard, Donna E.
American Journal of Health Behavior, v26 n4 p306-14 Jul-Aug 2002
Surveyed young adolescents receiving general health examinations regarding oral sex occurrence. Overall, 18 percent reported having oral sex, and of that 18 percent, 25 percent reported no vaginal sex. Few adolescents used barrier protection during oral sex. Most adolescents thought that penile-anal sex could transmit HIV, but only 68 percent thought that penile-mouth sex could transmit HIV. (SM)
