ABSTRACT
Using a sample of 717 never-married college women, this investigation ascertained first sources of sexuality information to determine their differential effects on future sexual attitudes and behavior. Of parents, teachers, and peers, parents were most often the first source of sexuality information for daughters. Data suggested that the variable, parents as first source, was significantly correlated with several safer sex behaviors as well as more positive sexual attitudes. While teachers, as first sexuality information sources, had the least measurable effect, peers had the most negative effect on sexual decisions.
