So I just learned about oral sex and I’m confused. Does everybody do oral sex?

Thanks for your question. Oral sex is a type of sexual contact between a person’s mouth and their partner’s vagina, penis, or rectum. Research studies show that approximately half of 15 to 19-year-old adolescents in the United States have ever had oral sex.

While you cannot get pregnant from oral sex, you can still get a sexually transmitted infection (STI). To have safer sex it’s important to use a condom or dental dam to help prevent STI’s.
