    Article - En anglais

    Purpose 

    The purpose of this study was to describe the various types of adolescent sexual relationships and to examine the association between the type of sexual relationship and adolescents'perceptions about the consistency with which other adolescents use condoms.

    Methods 

    Adolescents attending a university-based adolescent medicine clinic completed a self-administered questionnaire.

Subjects were also asked to estimate the frequency with which adolescent's use condoms with each type of sexual partner.

    Results 

    Questionnaires were completed by 75 sexually experienced adolescents.

    The mean age of the sample was 16.6 years, and 41.3% were male.

    Sexually experienced subjects believed that condoms are used less frequently with steady partners and more frequently with « one-night stands » (p<. 001). (...)
