Little is known about risky sexual activity among adolescents with alcohol use disorders.
This study of 371 adolescent drinkers found that those with alcohol disorders were more likely than other drinkers to be sexually active, to have greater numbers of partners, and to initiate sexual activity at slightly younger ages.
Independent of alcohol group, females were more likely than males to have unprotected sexual encounters.
