  1. A review of sexual behavior in the United States.

    Article - En anglais


    Knowledge of sexual behavior in the United States is necessary for 1) directing risk-reduction interventions aimed at preventing transmission of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and other sexually transmitted pathogens and 2) appreciating the current normative patterns of sexual behavior.


    The authors reviewed American surveys that included measures of sexual behavior and analyzed the 1988-1990 General Social Surveys.


    Most American males have intercourse by 16-17 years of age, and females do so by 17-18 years of age.

    The majority of young adults aged 18-24 have multiple, serial sex partners.
