When it Comes to Oral Sex, Gen Y are Ahead of the Rest

Oral sex is now so prevalent among Generation Y (those born between 1982 – 1995) that it is now "expected."

Once taboo, oral sex is now so commonplace that many young women feel pressure to perform it. A recent study found that 50 percent of women aged 16 to 25 feel "pressured to give oral sex." That same study also found that young men now ''expect'' to receive it.

The Australian study was conducted by Family Planning NSW who surveyed 250 girls aged 16 to 25. One 16-year-old participant said, "Most people I know that have oral sex only do it because everyone else does, and if you don't, you're frigid." One other woman spoke of the need to perform oral sex as a teenager to "impress a guy."

While half the women surveyed felt some pressure to perform fellatio on their male partner, a whopping majority said they enjoyed the act. According to the survey 82 per cent said they found it "enjoyable and rewarding."

The most common reason for having oral sex, according to the survey was, "It feels good." Some 25 percent of the young women surveyed saw "oral sex as a less intimate alternative to penetrative sex, for which they said 'they weren't ready.'"

The study confirms that oral sex is on the rise Down Under and verifies a 2008 study that showed 57 per cent of students had engaged in oral sex by the time they'd left high school.
