SECTION X: SEXUAL BEHAVIOR

READ: This section is about sexual behavior. Many of the questions in this section are very private and personal questions. Many people do not discuss this information with anyone, even their closest family and friends. These questions are very personal and sensitive. They may make you feel uncomfortable, but your input is important because without it, we are unable to know about sexuality among young adults, such as yourself. The information which you give us will help us learn more about the decisions young adults make regarding their sexual behavior and why they make them.

I want to remind you that all of the information which you give me today is confidential. Your name is not attached to these responses and there are no right or wrong answers.

Before we proceed, I wqould like to tell you what I am talking about when I ask about your sexual behavior. Sexual behavior can refer to many different activities. When I ask you questions about sexual behavior, I am asking whether you have been involved in any of the following activities with another person:

Vaginal sex - when a boy or man inserts his penis into a girl or woman’s vagina

Receptive anal sex - when a boy or man puts his penis into your anus or butt

MALES ONLY: Insertive anal sex - when you put your penis into the anus or butt of another person

Oral sex - When you put your mouth on someone’s penis, vagina, anus or butt

Receptive oral sex - When someone puts their mouth on your penis, vagina, anus or butt

Ask questions by column: first all vaginal sex questions, all receptive anal sex questions, etc.
