Sexual practices: what did young people say is ‘normal’?

We wanted to know what sorts of sexual activities 16-18 year olds thought were common among people their age. Our interviewees generally expected to experience practices such as vaginal fingering and oral sex before ‘losing their virginity’. These non-coital practices were seen as part of learning how to have sex,  how to experience pleasure with someone else, and developing trust and comfort within a relationship. They were also seen as a way to help prepare women’s bodies for penis-vagina penetration.
