This study examines shifts in sexual experience and condom use among US teenaged males.
Results from the 1988 and 1995 National Surveys of Adolescent Males were compared.
The proportion of never-married 15-to 19-year-old males who had had sex with a female declined from 60% to 55% (P=06).
The share of those sexually active using a condom at last intercourse rose from 57% to 67% (P<. 01).
Overall, the proportion of who had sex without condoms last year declined from 37% Conclusions.
Although protective behaviors among teenagers have increased, significant proportions of teenagers - especially Black and Hispanic males-remain unprotected.
