Understanding Changes in Young Metropolitan Men's Sexual Activity

1979-1995

Abstract

The authors analyze three cohorts of unmarried metropolitan teenage males: those aged 17-19 in 1979, in 1988 and in 1995. These time frames capture a period of increasing (1979 to 1988) then decreasing (1988 to 1995) sexual activity. By examining time periods with reversing trends, the authors offer a relatively strong framework within which to understand factors related to both increased and decreased sexual activity.
