Premarital Sexual Intercourse Among Adolescents in an Asian Country: Multilevel Ecological Factors

09 Jul 2012

Assoc Prof Wong Mee Lian from the National University of Singapore (NUS) Saw Swee Hock School of Public Health (SSHSPH) conducted a joint research study together with Dr. Roy Chan from the Department of Sexually Transmitted Infections Control (DSC) and Prof David Koh from SSHSPH on identifying factors associated with sexual initiation or premarital intercourse among a case-control group of teens aged 14 to 19 years old from 2006 to 2008.

When asked about the conclusion derived from this study, A/Prof Wong Mee Lian said, “Our teens today are very different from teens two or three decades ago. They are more exposed to media influences which may promote sexual behaviours and send mixed messages about love.”
