Abstract

Parent-adolescent sexual communication is a crucial subject in terms of knowledge transferring for an adolescent to spare from the dangers of sexual behavior. This is due to the notable role of parents in conveying sexual information and exerting a significant influence on adolescent sexual behaviors, values, and beliefs as to the risks. Numerous studies have demonstrated a positive correlation between parent-adolescent sexual communication and adolescent sexual behavior, i.e. delaying sexual debut, reducing sexual activities, increasing contraception and the use of condoms, and reducing the number of sexual partners. Nevertheless, there are still inconsistencies in the empirical literature. Other studies, for instance, have come up with an insignificant or even negative correlation. A sense of shame, inaccurate knowledge, and low self-efficacy can inhibit parent-adolescent sexual communication. This study aimed to synthesize literature and integratively scrutinize the correlation between parent-adolescent sexual communication and adolescent sexual behavior through the use of meta-analysis method. There were 28 studies used in the meta-analysis. The artifacts used for correction was error sampling (bare-bones meta-analysis). The findings showed a positive correlation between parent-adolescent sexual communication and adolescent sexual behavior at 0.0186, with a confidence level of 95%.
