Data were obtained retrospectively and anonymously using a computerized survey instrument from 450 female and 489 male participants who had experienced orgasm during oral sex before age 18, as well as 352 female and 151 male participants who had not experienced an orgasm while receiving oral sex before age 18. Female participants who experienced an orgasm during oral sex prior to age 18 were significantly more likely to experience an orgasm during oral sex after age 18. For male participants, although the difference was in the hypothesized direction, it did not reach significance. Female participants who experienced an orgasm during oral sex prior to age 18 were significantly more likely to report that being a recipient of oral sex was the easiest way for them to reach orgasm with a partner after age 18 and they had a preference for oral sex if they had experienced an orgasm during oral sex prior to age 18.
