After reading this Huffington Post article, I just want to go on record and say oral sex is sex. That means BJ’s and CJ’s (blow jobs and clit jobs - a term I hope I just made up, but I’m sure I didn’t, still it’s what I’m calling cunnilingus from now on, as in from right now on) are sex. You can get sexually transmitted infections like gonorrhea and chlamydia form oral sex, and you can give and receive herpes and HPV that way too.
I’ll be the first to admit I have a “human” track record when it comes to safe sex, read that as you may, but at least I’m clear on what oral sex is, unlike certain, uhm, former Presidents with famous cigar habits.
According to this 2007 University of Kentucky survey/study, back in 1991, 40% of the population (the population of a 500+ person survey that is) thought of oral-genital contact as sex, and now, since the Clinton-Lewinsky effect (the “I did not have sexual relations with that woman” or the oh but I did get a blowjob, that doesn’t count, right? comment) even less young adults think of oral sex as sex. The numbers now are somewhere around 20% for men and 18% for women.
Poor oral sex. It’s always been thought of as less than, when it comes to it’s more “mature” brethren, intercourse. But it’s not less than, it’s just different, and different is still sort of the same. Do you get what I’m saying?
