Coital and Non-Coital Sexual Behaviors of White and Black Adolescents.
Smith, Edward A.; Udry, J. Richard
American Journal of Public Health, v75 n10 p1200-03 Oct 1985
Data were collected in 1980 and 1982 on the non-coital and coital sexual experiences of male and female adolescents. Findings indicate that Whites are more likely than Blacks to engage in a predictable series of non-coital behaviors before their first intercourse experience. This may partly explain racial differences in adolescent pregnancy rates. (KH)
