Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on the stated and implicit motivation behind adolescent religious discourse about sexual decision making. It introduces a typology of religious influence, which should help make sense of the ways in which religion actually affects teenagers' sexual behavior. It concludes with a summary of the book's key findings and contributions, followed by an unscientific postscript — a series of the author's own reflections about adolescent sex and the social scientific study of it.

Keywords:   religious influence, adolescents, sexual behavior, religion, sexual decision making
