21st INRC [Research Presentation] Purpose: The purpose of this study was to test a cause-and-effect model of sexual communication among Taiwanese adolescents. Three hypotheses and a model were proposed in which the relationships among sexual self-concept, sexual risk cognition, and sexual communication were explored. Methods: A cross-sectional survey was used in this study. The author collected data from 748 adolescent students at a Taiwan junior college in 2009. Data were collected by a questionnaire. Results: The author found that the postulated model fitted the data well in this study. Sexual self-concept was found an influential factor and predictor to sexual risk cognition and sexual communication. Sexual risk cognition reached a significance level at predicting sexual communication. Moreover, it had an intervening effect on the relationship between sexual self-concept and sexual communication. Conclusion: Sexual risk cognition was an important factor in explaining sexual communication in adolescents. Sexual self-concept has both direct and indirect effects towards sexual communication. Several strategies are provided for school educators in developing sexual health programs to promote sexual self-concept of adolescents and their sexual communication with parents.
