Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


We examined reports of receptive oral or anal sex among clinic patients aged 12-25 years over time. Odds of reporting oral sex were approximately three times higher in 2004 than in 1994; odds of anal sex were twice as high. Providers should be aware of increased risk behavior among young people.
