Just got totally derailed by looking up American sexual behavior prevalences after telling someone (jokingly) that “all the cool kids are doing it”.
And what disappoints me is not the numbers, but rather, the totally unimaginative range of questions. Have you had same-sex experiences? Masturbated? PIV sex? Anal? Oral? And that’s pretty much it.
What’s even more annoying is that they ask male-identified people if they’ve ever been the receptive partner during anal sex, but they only ask it in the context of other men. Like, 30% of the American population could be really into pegging, but we’d have no idea from a research perspective because apparently everyone who puts these questionnaires together is super-conservative about their behavioral questions. Yawn.
