Introduction l.jpg

Introduction

  • Many factors can influence one’s decision to become sexually active (e.g. peers, family, media, religion, etc.)

  • Siblings influence one another in various ways

  • Siblings may gain values, knowledge, roles, and many skills from one another


Hypothesis l.jpg

Hypothesis

  • We expected that people with older siblings of the same gender would have greater sexual experience than people with older siblings of the opposite gender


Literature review l.jpg

Literature Review

  • Previous research shows that there is no significance with the effect of the gender on the older sibling on the younger siblings sexual experience (Rodgers, J.L. & Rowe, D.C. 1988).

  • Highly significant effects for younger versus older sibling, they found that the younger siblings were more sexually active (Rodgers, J.L. & Rowe, D.C. 1988).

Literature Review

  • It has been found that a stronger relationship with siblings can result in less sexual activity and safer sex practices (Kowal, A.K. & Blinn-Pike, L. 2004).


Participants l.jpg

Participants

  • Convenience sample

  • 50 Hanover College students

  • 25 males

  • 25 females

_____________________________________________________________________________


Findings l.jpg

Findings

  • A 2-way ANOVA was conducted and we found no significant interaction between older-same and older-opposite with sexual intercourse, F(1,46) = .257, p = .615.

  • We also found no significant interaction between older-same and older-opposite with oral sex, F(1,46) = 1.185, p = .282.


Findings11 l.jpg

Findings

  • We conducted an Independent T-test with the cases split by gender

  • Females who had an older-same sibling were more likely to have oral sex than females who had an older-opposite t(20) = -3.162, p = .005.


Discussion l.jpg

Discussion

  • Data does not support hypothesis

  • Peers may have a greater influence than siblings

  • Parental discipline and parents’ sexual attitudes

  • If it’s not siblings, what are some family influences on sexual activity?


Other influences of sexual activity l.jpg

Other Influences of Sexual Activity

  • Participants who have had sexual intercourse reported having discussed their sexual activity with their parents more than participants who had not had sexual intercourse, p = .001

  • Those who said they had sexual intercourse reported saying that religion was less important in their lives than participants who had not had sexual intercourse p = .046

  • Participants who’s biological parents are still married were more sexually active than those whose biological parents were not married, p = .012.


Limitations l.jpg

Limitations

  • Convenience sample

  • Smaller sample

  • Couldn’t ask all the specific questions we wanted

  • Socioeconomic Status

  • Did not specify sibling relationship (Biological, half-sibling, step-sibling)


Future direction l.jpg

Future Direction

  • Collect data on the amount of sexual education each participant encountered

  • Look at relationship between siblings and how that might effect sexual activity and safe sex practices

  • Format a more “in depth” questionnaire
