To the Editor: Drs Sanders and Reinisch1 demonstrate the widespread confusion about the
definition of "having sex" or "sexual relations," and illustrate the need
for greater specificity in future investigations of sexual behavior. Implicit
in their study is the potential benefit of more frank discussion of public
attitudes toward various sexual behaviors in sex education venues and perhaps
in the media as well.
