The Influence of Parental Messages about Sexual Orientation on LGBT Sexual Affect and Sexual Experience
MetadataShow full item record
More frequent and positive parent-adolescent communication about sexuality has been associated with fewer random sexual partners and engaging in sexual intercourse less often and at a later age (Miller, Forehand, & Kotchik, 1999). Messages to sons are more positive and encouraged sex while messages to daughters were more protective and placed more emphasis on the negative risks of sex (Downie & Coates, 1999). There is a lack of research on parental messages about homosexuality and the impact on LGBT individuals’ perceptions derived from the messages. Calzo and Ward (2009) found when discussions of homosexuality occurred, parents more often communicated that homosexuality is a question of orientation not morality and not as detailed as heterosexual messages. The current study aimed to examine how parental messages about homosexuality influence LGBT sexual affect and level of sexual experience.
