Abstract

This was a study of 414 adolescents who resided with rural families on Aidto Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) in 10 counties located in Arkansas. The purpose of the study was to determine what demographic and theoretical factors from control, strain, and social learning theories predicted sexual intercourse in the past year and lifetime sexual partners among youngand older adolescents (aged 13 to 15 years, and 16 and 17 years, respectively). Together, the findings offer partial support for the conceptual framework of development undergirding the study that elements of control or bonding and use of excuses are important influences on sexual behavior of olderadolescents, whereas young adolescents are more influenced by differentialpeer association, including use of excuses, and a deep-seated need for love or attachment. Furthermore, the finding that friend support actually increases the likelihood of sexual partners among young adolescents may be another manifestation of their need for closeness. Theoretical implications of these findings are discussed.
