According to a recent study, only 20 percent of young adults believe that oral-genital contact (aka oral sex) counts as “sex,” compared to those who say that vaginal intercourse (98 percent) and anal intercourse (78 percent) count. Why the discrepancy? Many, including Salon’s Tracy Clark-Flory, believe that the very public Bill Clinton sex scandal had something to do with that. For kids who came of age during the time when discussing the president’s blowjob on TV, oral sex seems less stigmatized and less connected to “actual” sex. Do you agree?
