@Anna – The study I pulled these stats from did control for the “voluntary” aspect…sort of. Those stats exclude people who’ve simply never had sex. That 3% represents people who dated, got married, and had sex for the first time in marriage. I guess you could argue that medical conditions like vaginisums and stuff could have accounted for a few of those, but I can’t imagine that the number would be very signficant.
