The article discusses a study that was done into the factors that can influence when Filipino youths decide to first have sex. It was found that Filipinos from a stable family situation were less likely to have had sex by age 22. If a young woman lived in a home where there was no abuse and finance was not a problem, she was likely to maintain her virginity by 22. Similarly, young men living in families where decisions are made jointly were also less likely to experiment with sex. Although young men in urban areas or who were wealthy were more likely to have had sex. In families where the father abused the mother, young women were more likely to have had sex.
