Article Looks at Adolescent Perception of Sexual Abstinence

"Our findings of confusion around the definition of sexual abstinence underscore the need for a clear operational definition of abstinence in research and programs," write the authors of an article published in the August 2006 issue of the Journal of Adolescent Health. The purposes of the study described in this article were to:

  • Examine how early and middle adolescents conceptualize abstinence
  • Identify developmental and contextual issues influencing abstinence decisions
  • Explore the roles of gender and behavioral experience

The authors found that participants knew that abstinence had something to do with sex, but many were unsure of its exact meaning. The authors conclude that "Adolescents are likely to be best served by placing abstinence back within the framework of broader sexuality education. This would provide adolescents with the information and decision-making skills to evaluate relationships, develop communication within relationships, and accurately assess their own level of readiness."

Ott, M.A., Pfeiffer, E.J., Fortenberry D. (2006). Perceptions of sexual abstinence among high-risk early and middle adolescents. Journal of Adolescent Health 39(2), 192-197. Abstract available at www.sciencedirect.com.


Young People More Likely to Use Condoms with Casual Partners than with a Main Partner

According to the study, "Condom Use with "Casual" and "Main" Partners: What's in a Name?" young people (ages 15-21) are more likely to use condoms with a casual sex partner than with their main partner. Researchers in their survey assessed condom use within the past 90 days of sexually active young people, evaluated participants' sexual attitudes, questioned their substance use and gathered demographic data on the participants. The researchers say interventions that do not target attitudes and practices related to casual partners as compared with main partners may miss an opportunity to change risk behaviors. They conclude that the study demonstrates the importance of understanding an adolescent's perception of partner types in order to design effective interventions. (Lescano et al. (2006). Condom Use with "Casual" and "Main" Partners: What's in a Name? Journal of Adolescent Health).


Trends in Contraception Use Among U.S. Teens

According to Child Trends' latest research brief, more teen females are protected by condoms hwne they have sex for the first time than in the past. However, Hispanic teens reported the lowest levels of all racial/ethnic groups to use any contraceptive method when they have sex for the first time. To read the research brief online, please visit www.childtrends.org (PDF).


2005 Results of Sexual Behavior Survey Released: Improvements in Teen Sexual Risk Behavior Flatline

The CDC released in its "Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report" (MMWR), an analysis of the latest survey on sexual behaviors of high school students (grades nine through twelve). The report, "Trends in HIV-Related Risk Behaviors Among High School Students - United States, 1991-2005," found that much-touted improvements in adolescent sexual risk-taking behavior actually took place from 1991 to 1999, and that fewer additional improvements occurred after 2000. To read the full press release, please visit www.advocatesforyouth.org
