The first sexual experience for 1 in 16 US women was forced or coerced intercourse in their early teens, encounters that for some may have had lasting health repercussions, a study suggests. The experiences amount to rape, the authors say, although they relied on a national survey that didn't use the word in asking women about forced sex. Almost 7 percent of women surveyed said their first sexual intercourse experience was involuntary; it happened at age 15 on average and the man was often several years older. Almost half of those women who said intercourse was involuntary said they were held down and slightly more than half of them said they were verbally pressured to have sex against their will.
Sexting in Middle School Means More Sex for Preteens and Teens
Middle-aged women can enjoy sex more as they get older, study finds | The Independent
Researchers said some middle-aged women had adapted to the changes brought on by the march of time. Even though they tended to have sex less often, these women discovered that their satisfaction has actually increased with age. The women put this down to more self-confidence, better communication skills — such as the ability to persuade their male partner's to take drugs for erectile dysfunction — and greater self-knowledge. Women tended to point to relationship discord and sexual dysfunction or health problems in their partners as the reasons why they were having less sex or had a lower libido. Those women who reported enjoying sex more reported using a number of different techniques, such as vaginal lubricants, lengthening foreplay and having different kinds of sex other than penetrative intercourse.
The sexuality of young people is a continuous fascination to the popular imagination as well as in sexuality research. The fascination contains a mixture of anxiety and nostalgia that clouds the self-evident observation that each adult — over a sexual lifetime spanning 50 years or more — extends the sexual adolescent that emerged with puberty. However, connecting the sexuality of early adolescence with elements of adult sexuality is difficult, despite a huge literature on adolescent sexuality. The sexuality of adolescents is not only seen as immature, but as being qualitatively distinct from the sexuality of adults. Exploration of the motivational and functional components of sexuality critical to understanding of adult sexuality — sexual desire, sexual arousal, and sexual function — is almost entirely missing.
