More than half of American teenagers say they have engaged in oral sex with a member of the opposite sex, according to a survey.

The survey—produced by the Hyattsville, Md.-based National Center for Health Statistics, a division of the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in Atlanta—found that among 15- to 19-year-olds, 55 percent of males and 54 percent of females said they had had oral sex. In that same age group, 36 percent of males and 39 percent of females reported having had vaginal intercourse.

The researchers surveyed 12,571 people between the ages of 15 and 44.
