Have a question about teens and oral sex? Click here and Claire Shipman may answer online. Also check out Claire Shipman's blog by clicking here. After four years researching for the documentary, Azam told "Good Morning America" that oral sex is as common as kissing for teens and that casual prostitution -- being paid at parties to strip, give sexual favors or have sex -- is far more commonplace than once believed. They don't consider a lot of things sex. Evidence of this casual attitude may be seen in the fact that more than half of all teens 15 to 19 years old have engaged in oral sex, according to a comprehensive study by the Centers for Disease Control's National Center for Health Statistics. In the documentary, "Oral Sex Is the New Goodnight Kiss," girls as young as 11 years old talk about having sex, going to sex parties and -- in some extreme situations -- crossing into prostitution by exchanging sexual favors for money, clothes or even homework and then still arriving home in time for dinner with the family. The girls are almost always from good homes, but their parents are completely unaware , Azam said.
By Dr George Lee. I know you are a urologist and tend to answer questions for men. However, I hope you can also help me to resolve some concerns I have about sex. I am 22 years old and started going out with my boyfriend for the last months. Things are going on really well between us, and we are a "bit physical". My boyfriend is keen on oral sex, however, after the first time of giving oral sex, I am not sure I really enjoyed it as much as him. Besides, I also worry about sexually transmitted infections! I tried to talk to my boyfriend about this. He said oral sex is not really sex, and there is no risk of sexually transmitted infection. I am so sorry to put Dr G on the spot, but can you clarify whether oral sex is real sex?
