New data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reveal that two-thirds of young adults between the ages 15 and 24 in the United States engage in oral sex, but researchers suggest teens seem to be unaware of the risk of sexually transmitted infections that result from the act.

The information is based on 6,346 interviews conducted between 2007 and 2010.

Long article...here's more, including the not so helpful input from a former President :) 

Oh Boy...when I read this it made me say my prayers over again thanking GOD that my kids are grown and ones married!

We are giving children the go ahead to make the decision to have sex and that's the problem right there... We look at kids and say "Well, you really shouldn't have sex but I know your too stupid to make a good decision so here's a condom!" Kids are sexually active earlier and earlier (including oral) because it has become the norm and is acceptiable.

Sooooo glad my girls waited. I feel as if I did at least one thing right.

Maybe its because I was sheltered growing up.But oral sex never crossed my mind as a teen.None of my friends dated.We just hung out in groups,and never had these worries.
