Journal of Sex Education and Therapy
This study compared 1974 and 1984 university student experience with various sexual outlets. Fifty single males and fifty single females in 1974 and 1984 were randomly selected from all those taking a sexuality course at University of Northern Iowa in those years. They answered a questionnaire requiring yes or no responses to twenty-five questions on experience with sexual outlets. Fewer students in 1984 than in 1974 had: Group sex experience, and sexual contact with an animal. More students in 1984 than in 1974 had: Wished they had not done a sexual act they had done; found it difficult to forgive themselves for a sexual act they had done; experienced intercourse with an intended marriage partner; and stimulated a partner's genitals orally. Male/female differences in experience with sexual outlets generally followed traditional sex roles. More students in large class sections than in small ones had experienced socially less sanctioned sexual outlets. © 1985 Taylor & Francis Ltd.
