Bingham, C. Raymond; Crockett, Lisa J.
Developmental Psychology, v32 n4 p647-58 Jul 1996
Examined the association between psychosocial development and the timing of first sexual intercourse in a sample of white, rural adolescents. Two theoretical models were tested. For both boys and girls, early timing of first sexual intercourse was associated with longitudinal patterns of greater transition proneness and poorer psychosocial adjustment. No evidence of negative psychosocial outcomes was found. (AA)
