First Sexual Intercourse: Anticipation and Communication. Interviews with Young People in England.
Mitchell, Kirstin; Wellings, Kaye
Journal of Adolescence, v21 n6 p717-26 Dec 1998
Interviews young people about their first sexual intercourse. Main findings show communication plays a central role mediating between the degree of anticipation and the degree to which first intercourse is wanted, protected, and enjoyed. First intercourse tends to be silent. Where young people are ambivalent, verbal and non-verbal communication may send contradictory messages. (Author/JDM)
