The purpose of this preliminary study was to evaluate a longitudinal model of Asian American Pacific Islanders (AAPI) mother-adolescent sex-related interactions (specifically, the mothers' perception of sexual discussion, connectedness, and adolescents' perceived communication, monitoring and connectedness with their mothers) affect adolescents' perceived maternal sexual expectations and their first sexual exposure overtime. The dependent variables are the AAPI adolescents' perceived maternal sexual expectations and their first sexual exposure over two time periods, Wave 1 (09/94-12/95) and Wave 2 (04/96-08/96). A national representative dataset, the Add Health, is used for secondary data analysis. The sample for the analyses consists of 465 AAPI adolescents ages 15-17 and their mothers. This longitudinal model examines the relationships among AAPI mothers' perception of sexual discussion, connectedness, and adolescents' perceived communication, monitoring and connectedness with their mothers and adolescents' perceived maternal sexual expectation and their first sexual exposure using structural equation modeling (SEM) with the EQS for Window 6.1. The longitudinal model shows a good fit for the sample as a whole (chi-square =190.80 227df, p=.96 NFI=.907, NNFI= 1.0, CFI =1.0 and RMSEA=.00). Similar findings were obtained when gender comparisons were modeled. The findings suggest that, for AAPI adolescents, the mothers' perceived connectedness predicts a higher level of adolescents' perceived maternal sexual expectations and later onset of sexual exposure. Most importantly, adolescents' higher level of perceived maternal sexual expectations is consistently associated with a later onset of sexual exposure over the two time periods for both males and females. As expected, AAPI adolescent females' sexual exposures are influenced more by their perceptions of maternal sexual expectation as compared to AAPI adolescent males. The paper discusses gender, cultural influences, implication for nursing practice, limitations of the study and recommendations for future research.
