Young Adult Sexual Health: Current and Prior Sexual Behaviors Among Non-Hispanic White U.S. College Students
March 23, 2010
The current study provides information on the prior and current sexual practices -- including oral sex, vaginal intercourse, anal intercourse, and masturbation -- of a population of U.S. college students. "Less is known about the sexual health of young adults than about adolescents, despite 20- to 24-year-olds' greater risk of unintended pregnancy and sexually transmissible infections," the authors wrote.
The researchers examined data from a cross-sectional sexuality survey of students at two U.S. universities: one in the Midwest and one in the Southwest. The sample consisted of 1,504 non-Hispanic, white, never-married students who identified as heterosexual.
