Robinson, Rachel B.; Frank, Deborah I.
Adolescence, v29 n113 p27-35 Spr 1994
Examined self-esteem and sexuality in 141 male and 172 female adolescents. Found no differences in self-esteem of males versus females. Sexual activity or virginity was not related to self-esteem for either gender. Pregnant teenagers did not have different self-esteem levels from nonpregnant. Males who had fathered a child had lower self-esteem than did nonfathers. (Author/NB)
