The study was done by the Guttmacher Institute, and included more than 2,200 teenage males and females between the age of 15 and 19-years old.

The study was led by Laura Lindberg from Guttmacher, who stated that the results show teens are not engaging in the act of oral sex as often as previously thought.

The study found that 55% of teens engaged in oral sex, with nearly 50% engaging in vaginal sex.

This goes against the myth that teens save their virginity by engaging in oral sex only. The study found teens engage in all acts around the same act, with neither being far more prevalent than the others.

The study will be published in the July issue of the Journal of the Adolescent Health, and was based on data from a 2002 federal study.
