The incidence of heterosexual anal sex is increasing among teens and young adults -- a sexually transmitted disease and HIV risk factor, U.S. researchers say. Researchers at the Bradley Hasbro Children's Research Center in Providence said these findings mirror recent data that show anal sex rates among adults doubled from 1995 to 2004.

A new study of U.S. teens' sexual behavior found evidence to disprove the notion that many teens try to substitute oral sex for intercourse in order to stay "technically" virgins.

Slightly more than half (55 percent) of teen participants said they had engaged in oral sex, but teens reported beginning vaginal and oral sex at about the same time. By six months after first vaginal intercourse, 82...

ATLANTA (Reuters) - The number of U.S. syphilis cases rose for the fourth straight year in 2004, fueled by increases among men, while the gonorrhea disease rate reached a historic low, federal health researchers said on Tuesday. The annual report on sexually transmitted diseases (STD) by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also showed a rise in chlamydia cases, but the increase is believed to reflect better screening and not a rise in new infections. The rate of...
