ABSTRACT
Abstract: This study examined whether the association between gender and attitudes toward sexual intercourse would differ by perceived peer influences compared to perceived parent-guardian influences. The 1998 Alabama Adolescent Survey (N=2125) provided the original sample. Respondents (n = 548) included 9th and 10th grade students who were primarily Caucasians (60.8%) and African Americans (39.2%) who attended public high schools in rural, southern Alabama. Chi-square analyses indicated significant bivariate associations between gender and measures of attitude toward intercourse. The interactive nature of corem unication source highlighted the complexity of gender based social support issues and how these interact to shape cognitive beliefs.
